UWC-Global Fund for Women Partnership

In 2023, UWC has teamed up with the Global Fund for Women to expand leadership education pathways for talented adolescent girls from Sub-Saharan Africa.

This partnership provides opportunities for talented girls to receive education, mentorship and support to  empower them with leadership skills. The initiative includes scholarships for short courses and two full years of education, as well as access to mentoring and networking. It will support 200+ girls from Eastern and Southern Africa over three years from 2023-2025, with a funding contribution from the Global Fund for Women

The project is implemented in cooperation with UWC East Africa in Tanzania and Waterford Kamhlaba UWC of Southern Africa (UWCSA) in Eswatini. It targets talented girls from the East African Community (Democratic Republic of Congo, Kenya, Rwanda, Tanzania, and Uganda) and the Southern African Development Community (SADC) (Madagascar, Mozambique, Namibia, South Africa, Eswatini and Zimbabwe).
