African Rural University
We are excited to go to African Rural University in Uganda, the first all-women’s university in Africa! In August, we sent four highly-qualified and enthusiastic educators to offer a two-week Summer School to this extraordinary institution.
Students were taught by Philippa, a researcher from the London School of Economics and member of the British women’s fencing teams. Ena from the University of St Andrews taught Global Politics, and Till, a weathered entrepreneur and graduate of the Design School IED in Barcelona taught Design Thinking along with Matt who was sponsored by IED to take footage and make a video of our impact.
Our first summer school in Asia took place late August at Srinakharinwirot University in Bangkok, Thailand. This was our first expansion outside of Africa. Sabrina brought over 17 years of Model United Nations (MUN) experience to the university when she gave a course in public speaking and debate using MUN simulations.
