Through this program we seek to cultivate a network of qualified professionals from the developing world who are strongly committed to strengthening women’s land rights at local, national, and international levels. Our goal is to boost these visiting professionals’ capacities by fostering cross-cultural connections and enhancing their ability to advocate for and reinforce their commitment to improving women’s land rights.
The program starts with a multiweek (approximately five to six weeks) intensive at Landesa’s headquarters in Seattle, Washington, USA. Because of funding requirements, this year’s class will consist of professionals from India, China, Ghana, Liberia, and Tanzania, and they will join us in September 2016.
We invite you to consider this opportunity and would be very grateful if you could also help us by reaching out to qualified candidates, organizations, and/or networks and forward this information to them.
