A team from Kisii University in Kenya, headed by ANGEL member Dr Titus Pacho, are looking for a partnership with a UK institution to answer a call for proposals for a British Council grant: Going Global Partnerships / Gender Equality Partnerships, which supports higher and further education institutions and sector bodies in the UK and other countries to build partnerships and enable systemic change in priority themes relating to gender equality. Kenya is included as one of the partner countries for this round.
What funding is available?
An anticipated 11 joint projects will be funded, each with a value of £20,000 to £25,000, for a 12-month project period. The application deadline is 20 September.
Dr Pacho seeks to look at one of the priority areas “Social innovation in STEM for job creation and employability among female students at universities in Kenya“. ANGEL members working in this area, or who are keen to participate in Global South-Global North partnerships, can contact Dr Pacho directly if they are interested.
