The Wanjiru Kihoro Fellowship is fully funded, providing round trip airfare to Geneva and living expenses for 9 months and in the field for 3 months.
The Wanjiru Kihoro Fellowship’s broad goal is to contribute to the development of a new generation of African women leaders who are dedicated to utilizing their voices and experience to further women’s central role in peace building and development work in their country, region and continent.
The Fellowship aims to attract applicants who have substantial experience in local community work and who wish to gain international experience to enrich and enhance their skills.
The Wanjiru Kihoro Fellowship would bridge this gap by providing the opportunity to work for a period of 9 months at FAS’ International Secretariat in Geneva, Switzerland before returning to put their skills into action through an additional 3 month placement with an NGO in Africa.
This opportunity will also provide her/him the possibility to gain insight into an NGO’s activities at the international level and to acquire first-hand experience in international relations.
