Fatuma Abdulkadir Adan

Founder and Executive Director, Horn of Africa Development Initiative - HODI

Fatuma Adan was born to parents from two warring tribes in Marsabit, Northern Kenya. After becoming the first woman from Marsabit to obtain a law degree, she declined job offers in Nairobi to return to her homeland to provide legal representation to people who could not afford it. In 2003, she founded Horn of Africa Development Initiative (HODI). Since it’s founding, Fatuma has been adding innovative new services and advocating on behalf of her region vis-à-vis the international community. Fatuma received the Stuttgart Peace Prize in 2011, the Vital Voices Fellowship in 2014, and the Beyond Sports Award in 2015, and she became an End FGM Ambassador in 2017. In 2012, Fatuma was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize. HODI has just been named NGO of the Year at the 2017 Peace and Sport Awards in Monaco.
