WPSP Partners with Global Give Back Circle
We are excited to announce that the Women in Public Service Project will join forces this year with the US-based NGO, Global Give Back Circle. The Global Give Back Circle - Future Political Leaders program is specifically aimed at educating and empowering at-risk adolescent girls in Kenya and Rwanda to step into leadership roles in politics and government. This program pairs 100 girls, 50 from Kenya and 50 from Rwanda, who have displayed an interest in public service, with 100 women in public service from around the world.
The participating girls receive access to monthly workshops that provide subject theory and content on leadership skills and policy development, a one-on-one mentor to work with her as she develops new skills, and support to design and implement a Give Back Project that impacts her community. Mentors, all of whom have years of experience in public service, guide their mentee through all of the above and support this next generation of women leaders. Through their correspondences, mentors and mentees learn about one another and help each other grow.
Through this program the Women in Public Service Project seeks to build a generation of women leaders in public service who will invest in their countries and communities, provide leadership in their governments, and change the way global solutions are forged. This will prepare a new generation of leaders in the 50x50 movement toward gender parity in elected and appointed leadership positions around the world.
