In Women's Hands: Empowering The Next Generation

Commitment by

MPULE Institute for Endogenous Development

In 2012, the MPULE Institute committed to create the Network of Women Investing in Africa (NEW Africa) Leadership Program, a program that will identify, engage, empower and mobilize 350 women under the age of 40 from Africa and her diaspora over the next year. This program expands upon MPULE Institute's 'In Women's Hands' campaign, an advocacy and public policy initiative to empower the next generation of African female leaders. The MPULE Institute will convene women and multi-sector partners around International Day of Rural Women, the Commission on the Status of Women, World AIDS Day, World Water Day, Africa Day, Earth Day, and other similar events. The MPULE Institute will create agendas to inform and build the capacity of participants on closing the gender gap for development. The goal of the NEW Africa Leadership Program is to increase young African women's representation and participation in the global development agenda, put more resources and capabilities in women's hands, and unlock new opportunities and areas of productivity in sectors proven to lift women and their families from poverty.
