SEPO Zambia is excited to announce that we are partnering with students in Dr. Alicia Johnson’s Global Perspectives on Women and Gender course to strategize and develop new and innovative projects, informed by place-based development and our mission. This partnership advances our mission by identifying needs/strengths, developing global partnerships, and building more sustainable futures.
We will spend our semester engaging with these students, fostering global citizenship and developing their intercultural knowledge. At the end of the term, groups will pitch project proposals to SEPO for potential development on the ground in western Zambia.
UW Oshkosh student engagement with SEPO Zambia reinforces our core belief that the work we do is ‘as one’ – meaning that we are all best-served when people of diverse backgrounds and experiences work collaboratively for social change AND that we all have much to learn from each other.
