Apply to the Emerging Leaders for Change East Africa Cohort

Source: Women Deliver

The Women Deliver Emerging Leaders for Change Program is a two-year leadership program that supports passionate young activists with the resources, platforms, connections, and trainings necessary to amplify and achieve their advocacy goals. Women Deliver, with its strong commitment to both gender equality and sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR), has a strong history of equitable youth engagement and co-leadership.  

The Emerging Leaders Program is a focused, well-resourced, thematically-bound program that will co-create each Emerging Leaderโ€™s advocacy journey with them. It is the result of us:  

  • Taking stock of a decadeโ€™s worth of lessons learned 
  • Reflecting on our own transformation as an organization 
  • Conducting numerous consultations with youth and partners in the field 

Women Deliver will work with each Emerging Leader on developing their journey with flexible funding, support, trainings, and resources.

Who Is Eligible for the Program? 

1. Young people (aged 15-29) of any gender and sexual identity who: 

2. Live and work in Burundi ๐Ÿ‡ง๐Ÿ‡ฎ, Ethiopia ๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡น, Kenya ๐Ÿ‡ฐ๐Ÿ‡ช, Rwanda ๐Ÿ‡ท๐Ÿ‡ผ, Tanzania ๐Ÿ‡น๐Ÿ‡ฟ, or Uganda ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ฌ

3. Advocate for sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) and/or gender equality, particularly focusing on advocacy that affects adolescent girls within their communities. Preference will be given for those interested or experienced in our focus issue areas: universal health coverage, the climate crisis, and countering the anti-rights movement.
