Announcing regional webinars on Girl Centered Design
GirlSPARKS will be running regional webinars for both existing learners and for those interested in learning more about Girl Centered Design.
Philanthropy UniversityJuly 5, 2018
We are excited to invite Philanthropy University learners to join our special one-hour regional webinars, hosted by our partner GirlSPARKS.
Webinars will be focused on four regions: Asia and the Pacific, Middle East, North Africa and Europe, Sub Saharan Africa and The Americas and the Caribbean.
Each webinar will touch on key themes from the Girl Centered Design Course and provide additional regional case studies that show how girl-centred design can be put into practice.
Regional case studies
A large portion of the webinar will be a regional case study where participants will get the opportunity to be talked through a real example of girl led design in action. For example, in Asia and the Pacific session, we will focus on the work being done in Nepal to support the education of marginalised girls within the district of Kailali. Here 36 percent of girls aged 10-14 do not transition from primary to secondary school and almost half of the girls (48 percent) get married by the age of 18.
Other case studies include:
- Work being done in Nigeria, during our Africa webinar;
- Work being done in Colombia, during our Americas webinar; and
- Work being done in Yemen, during our Middle East webinar.
