GWI/UAUW Teachers for Rural Futures project proud to sponsor more students
Graduate Women International (GWI) is proud to announce a further three young women undergraduates joining its Teachers for Rural Futures project. The project is already sponsoring two students, Winfred and Benadet, who have successfully completed their first year and are currently building their skills with teaching practice in local schools. GWI national affiliate the Uganda Association of University Women (UAUW) conducted community engagement to promote education for girls and women in the rural community of Buyende in eastern Uganda, and identified these candidates for the project. New 2016 student Hasifa says: “Educating the girl child is an investment…because girls are the mothers of the country”. GWI is now sponsoring five girls who will be teachers and ambassadors for girls’ education in rural Uganda, thanks to our generous donors. Help us train more women teachers in Uganda to teach thousands more students. Donate now.
