TuWezeshe Akina Dada - Leadership & Fellowship Programme 2021
The TuWezeshe Fellowship is a bespoke leadership mentoring program for women from FGM-effected communities working or hoping to work against Female Genital Mutilation (FGM). As part of the international TuWezeshe Akina Dada Spotlight programme, the End FGM European Network will lead and coordinate the 6 months fellowship in Europe, which offers participants the opportunity to gain core leadership and research skills, to receive training in advocacy and campaigning and to implement a funded group research project. As part of our commitment to improve the visibility and profile of young women leaders from FGM-affected communities, participants will have the chance to influence changes to end FGM, network with other inspiring young women leaders in Europe and share ideas, voices, and stories.
