Who We Are
The Mawazo Learning Exchange is a programme of the Mawazo Institute, a non-profit research institute based in Nairobi, Kenya. Our mission is to support the next generation of female scientists and thought leaders in East Africa, and to get policymakers and the general public engaged with their work. Our programmes equip young African women to conduct high quality research on issues affecting the continent’s development, prepare them to launch successful careers in their field, and position them to be thought leaders with influence both within and outside academia.
