Emerlinda Alembe is born in Douala . It was following the death of her grandmother (12 years old) due to a surgical error that she decided to become a doctor later on, even after the difficulties encountered during her parents’ divorce in order to improve the quality of patient care in her country. 4 years later, she “will make a gift of herself” by deciding to “give hope to others” while “causing a real impact”, She will join the FOCOLARI Youth Movement (created by Chiara Lubich) and will go to Central African Republic to give hope to the young people who in 2006, faced the War and its consequences, later in 2008 for the same ones.
As soon as she arrives, she will enroll in the Guinean Red Cross, where she will develop her skills in volunteerism and humanitarian work and eventually become a relief worker. She has a rich experience in the associative life in Guinea and is very involved in sustainable development issues, including defending the rights of children (especially orphans) and young people. Collecting material (clothing, food, medicine, etc.) in order to give it to people in need did not meet her objective of "making a real impact". This was the result of her various training sessions with the National AIDS Centre (CNLS), where she ended up raising awareness and distributing massively male condoms to nearly 50 000 young people, she had a training with the Yali (Young African Leadership Initiative) CRL Regional Centre in Dakar, she initiated also the animation of several projects on citizenship and the promotion of human rights, in particular the Rights to Education, Health, Food and Environmental Protection.
That its real impact began as follows:
Partnership with 2/27 supermarkets in the city of Conakry with the aim of providing free long term products with an average durability date is less than a month to orphans, beggars of the CITY OF CONAKRY, elementary school volunteer education course for orphans in Guinea and the donation of health equipment to the pediatric department of Ignace Deen public Hospital following a children’s fair,
She was selected and trained in the YALI Civic Leadership program, a member of the Commonwealth Youth Peace Ambassadors Network (CYPAN), Health Environmental Safety in the Workplace (SSE), Amnesty International’s Refugee Law, and the National Observer of the 2015 Presidential Elections in Guinea.
