Bisharo Ali Hussein selected as a member of the 2018 class of Women Deliver Young Leaders

We are proud to announce that our very own Bisharo Ali Hussein is one of the 300 change makers chosen to be part of the 2018 class of women deliver young leaders. Bisharo Ali Hussein, whose expertise lie within the planning, establishment and management of development and humanitarian projects, was a graduate fellow in our post-graduate diploma programme in International Gender Equality Studies in 2017. In her final assignment, Ms. Hussein wrote a project proposal on Addressing Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) through Promoting Literacy for Girls and Women in Rural Puntland-Somalia,  but she remains an avid advocate for the rights of women and girls, and works in Somalia.

Together with young leaders from 121 countries, she will fight for gender equality by advocating for the health, rights and well being of girls and women. We extend our warm congratulations to Bisharo, and wish her well in her role as a representative of young leaders across the globe and a force for change.
