The 200 women we sponsored to receive design training are due to start their courses in a few days on Cohort B of Ingressive For Good's Women in Design Program.
50 out of the 200 scholarship places we funded on the program were reserved for women in the communities Kwanda works in.
Thirty of these places have been allocated to women in Zimbabwe via our partners Days for Girls and PCP. Ten have been allocated to women in Kenya via our partners Kenya Connect. The remaining ten places have been allocated to queer women in Nigeria in collaboration with Kwanda villager Ifeanyi Awachie.
Most of the fifty women have taken up their spot. Any unfilled spots will be given to women on the waitlist for the program.
We are excited for the women to begin their training and will share updates as we get them.
