We are happy to introduce the inaugural cohort of Community Engagement Fellows: Africa, an opportunity to create community solutions through collaborations that transcend geographical, political, and sociocultural boundaries.
Community leaders across Africa will have an opportunity to share their experiences as well as learning from fellow leaders from different African countries. Our varying contexts, dynamics and social problems from community to community will help create rich learning opportunities.
Meetings will be on Zoom and take place on Wednesdays from 8:00-9:15 pm East Africa Time. See the schedule below. The program is free and open to anyone working in community education and development in Africa.
Co-facilitators will be Dominic Savio, Director of the Akili Pana Initiative in Uganda, and Travis Tennessen, Convener of Community Engagement Fellows at Western Washington University, USA.
