Mariam Ali Famau

Founder, Peaceful Innovation Organization

2018 Goldin Global Fellow

Mariam Ali Famau from Nairobi, Kenya, is the Founder of Peaceful Innovation Organization, an inter-religious dialogue initiative and a non-profitable community-based organization. A single parent herself, Mariam began the PIO in 2010 and organizes clean-up campaigns as well as medical clinics, all with an eye toward countering radicalization and extremism amongst the youth of her community, an impoverished area on the outskirts of Nairobi. In addition to a proven model of successful de-radicalization which has already benefited many young people, the PIO also offers its participants small amounts of capital and practical mentorship to launch their own businesses.
