In 2011, Nabourema co-founded the Faure Must Go movement, which has since become a hallmark of the Togolese struggle against Faure Gnassingbé’s oppressive rule. Today, she serves as the executive director of the Togolese Civil League, a group that mobilizes pro-democracy activists.

She has been featured in the Nobel Women’s Initiative Activist Spotlight and was recognized by the Africa Youth Awards as the 2017 Advocate of the Year.
