Courses included an introduction to Community Health, taught by Yanoh who is also a lecturer at New York Institute of Technology; Charles, a lecturer at our partner university Richmond University London taught Global Finance and Entrepreneurship; and Joanne from the London School of Economics led a course in International Politics: History, Geography and Interaction. We also gave workshops on CV and cover letters, dissertations and research and law workshops.

African Rural University

In 2017 we hosted our first program at the African Rural University in Uganda, the first all women’s university in Africa! In August, we sent four highly-qualified and enthusiastic educators to offer a two-week Summer School to this extraordinary institution.

Students were taught by Philippa, a researcher from the London School of Economics and a member of the British women’s fencing teams. Ena from the University of St Andrews taught Global Politics, and Till, a weathered entrepreneur and graduate of the Design School IED in Barcelona taught Design Thinking along with Matt who was sponsored by IED to take footage and make a video of our impact.
