Professional Fellows - Fall 2022 Cohort

Meet our Fall 2022 Cohort of Professional Fellows! This group of six accomplished disability rights leaders from Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, and Ethiopia will travel to the United States in October 2022 to participate in an intensive 5-week Fellowship Program where they will exchange and discuss best practices for inclusive civic engagement with their US colleagues.

Learn more about our Fellows and their current civic engagement work in their home countries and communities! Our Fellows also share how they plan to use this Fellowship opportunity to advance and multiply their work and impact.
