Welcome back to the podcast. In this week’s episode, Helen and Janet are joined by Leila and Christine, two alumnae from the Zawadi Africa Education Fund. Zawadi is a leadership programme that helps young Kenyan women access university to turn them into future leaders. It is also a member organisation of the HALI Access Network. Zawadi’s unique programme not only gives girls the tools that they need to succeed, but also creates a sisterhood through mentorship. This community network connects girls between year group cohorts and universities, helping them to support each other in and out of academics.
Christine and Leila talk about growing up in Kenya, their experience at Zawadi, the importance of leadership, and their goals for their studies and careers. The podcast ends with an inspiring message to any girls listening who have big dreams and want to succeed.
