We are pleased and excited to announce that our Founder, Adepeju Mabadeje Jaiyeoba, has been selected to take part in the prestigious 2014 Washington Fellowship for Young African Leaders!

The Washington Fellowship for Young African Leaders is awarded by the President of the United States to Young African Leaders who are shaping the continent’s future and who have proven record of leadership and accomplishment. It supports Young African Leaders as they spur growth and prosperity, strengthen democratic governance, and enhance peace and security across Africa.

Adepeju will spend six weeks studying at a US institute of higher education, together with other young leaders from sub-Saharan Africa and the United States.

She will then travel to Washington D.C. to participate in a three-day Washington Fellows Summit hosted by President Obama.

Upon completion of the U.S.-based programme, the fellowship will then continue in Africa, with access to ongoing professional development, networking and funding opportunities.

This major achievement follows on from a lengthy application and interview process, during which 500 young people were selected from approximately 50,000 applications!

In addition, Adepeju has been slected as one of 100, from those participants, to also take part in the Washington Fellowship Internship.

We see this as real recognition of our work and a unique opportunity to move more quickly towards achieving our aim that every mother has access to proper medical help during pregnancy and child-birth.
