Amina Priscille Longoh, a 29-year-old journalist, has become Chad’s minister of women and protection of children.

Her Network reports that she has a deep interest in humanitarianism. She is also the founder of Chad Helping Hands, an NGO that helps citizens in the country with basic needs.

Longoh’s appointment, according to reports, was based on her many humanitarian efforts in helping less privileged in Chad.

Before her appointment, she was the director-general of the national house of women. Added to that, she held the role of education and skills commissioner of the Pan African Youth Union.

African Shapers reports that she was in the oil sector before she switched career to humanitarian aid. She studied communication in school.

“I think that access to basic amenities such as education, access to clean water and health services must be within the reach of everyone. Regardless of social rank.

“I would also like to help build a Chad in which each woman or young girl can create the way of life she wishes to adopt, without being marginalized. I am convinced that a society in which women are not socially and economically marginalized will be a fairer, more united and more prosperous society,” she said.

Due to her many contributions, she was selected in 2019 to represent her country at the European Union Visitors Program which held in Brussels from Monday, November 11, to Saturday, November 16 of the same year.
