Here's a photo from another one of our partner organizations, Akili Dada!
Akili Dada was founded in 2005 by Dr. Wanjiru Kamau-Rutenberg to address the underrepresentation of women in leadership positions in Africa. During her dissertation research on women’s rights in Kenya, Wanjiru realized the extent to which women’s voices – particularly those from underprivileged backgrounds – were missing in the policy and decision-making processes affecting women’s lives in Kenya and across the continent. As her own experience had taught her that access to such positions typically required university education, strong mentors, and leadership experience – all beyond the reach of most underprivileged young women – she set out to bridge that gap. Having earned scholarships for her own degrees in higher education, Wanjiru knew the power of scholarships to open doors for underprivileged young African women.
