Clean Earth Gambia is pleased to open the call for application for the first ever She-climate leadership fellowship in The Gambia.
The five month fellowship is aimed at training 25 young women from all 7 regions in The Gambia about the nexus of gender and climate change. Women and girls are disproportionately impacted by climate change in The Gambia, leading to girls dropping out of school, forced into early marriage and other social and cultural challenges that come with the impacts of climate change. The fellowship will train participants about the impacts of climate change, build the skills of participants to adapt and communicate climate related issues and build the leadership of fellows.
The fellowship will also involve fieldwork, group and community projects that will enable participants to understand climate related issues and come up with innovative solutions that they can engage in after the fellowships.
