Challenge

Providing postgraduate level opportunities through this project will equip women to take up leadership positions directly impacting the communities by fighting poverty in the nations and region where they live. The people we support gain the skills they need to make a significant difference - for example Malawi's first government cancer specialist, Zimbabwean human rights lawyers and Zambian conservation experts.

Solution

This programme will support women to become leaders in their fields, enabling them to fight poverty and shape community development. Rural women traditionally lack voice in decision-making, but this places them at the forefront of development.

Long-Term Impact

Each woman supported goes onto affect the lives of many more. Grace Mutati, supported to study Community Eye Health, now heads the eye unit at Zambia's teaching hospital, helping 1000 people to avoid blindness each year and teaching 50 new doctors.
