Global GAIN is excited to be organizing our first women's leadership exchange. We are recruiting women leaders in the United States interesting learning about women's leadership and gender equity development in East Africa - specifically in Rwanda and Uganda. We will visit with a variety of women leaders and programs and organizations dedicated to women's leadership development and gender equity in Rwanda. We will then join our partner organization
for women's leadership retreat at Entutsi on the beautiful Lake Bunyonyi in Uganda - just a few hours drive from Kigali.
