Wawira Njiru Named 2020 Ford Global Fellow

June 1, 2020

“With a $50-million investment over the next 10 years, the Ford Global fellowship aims to connect and support the next generation of social justice leaders who are advancing innovative solutions to end inequality. The program will run for 18 months with an emphasis on shared learning, building and strengthening connections, and developing a supportive, interconnected cohort. Our hope is for the fellowship to serve as a catalyst for the fellows to accelerate the impact of their work, individually and collectively.

In this inaugural year, we welcome 24 extraordinary fellows from four regions—Brazil, East Africa, the Middle East and North Africa, and the United States. And over the next decade, we aim to create a powerful network of 240 fellows from across the globe, covering a multitude of our most pressing issues.”

Meet all the 2020 Ford Global Fellows.
