Jenelyn Nagrampa


Jenelyn Nagrampa is the national vice-chairperson of Gabriela, a grass-roots alliance that aims to empower Filipino woman, primarily from marginalised sectors of society, and help them in advocating for their rights and interests through collective action.

It provides services such as counselling, medical missions, relief and rehabilitation in times of disaster, as well as capacity building trainings.

The climate of impunity that prevails in the Philippines, combined with the administration’s encouragement of extra-judicial killings of alleged drug users as well as the increasingly hard line taken by the army towards the National Democratic Front of the Philippines, has resulted in the serious deterioration in the situation for human rights defenders in the country.
