Nita Evele Fund

Nita Evele was a cherished member of the Panzi family, who served as member of the Board of Directors for the US office, and was Chair of the Board when she passed away unexpectedly in September 2021. Nita was a passionate and dedicated human rights defender and activist who cared deeply about the future of her home country, the Democratic Republic of Congo. All those who knew her remember her commitment and integrity, and in her memory, Panzi Foundation has begun the “Nita Evele Fund.” This fund will support those projects that were most dear to Nita throughout her work with Panzi: advancing the efforts of civil society, protecting democracy and transparency, and working toward lasting peace and justice in DRC.
