Elly Pauwels has joined the Namur office as a lawyer.

With a degree in microfinance and a law degree, Elly is a born feminist and humanist. She became aware of female genital mutilation and its impact on women’s lives through the life stories of migrant women, who were received via the “Plateforme citoyenne d’hébergement”.

For her, working at GAMS Belgium means contributing to the defence of women victims of gender violence. And this alongside a multidisciplinary, multicultural and passionate team.

Elly is the mother of a “little” girl adopted from Laos and an amateur photographer. She is a traveller at heart and will end her life on a sailing boat discovering the world.
