Follow The Feminist In Africa

Online placement (E-Classroom)

Length of Placement 1 Semester

To help build the evidence base for Cuso International’s work on gender equality in Africa, researchers will map the history of the feminist movement in the countries in which we work focusing on: i) History of the movement with a focus on individual organizations, ii) Policies, iii) Calls for action and iv) Funding success and challenges.

The research will focus on: How can Cuso International show solidarity? What type of programs could Cuso develop to support feminist organizations in Africa at the national, regional, international, and virtual levels.

Larger classrooms may consider dividing into groups by country (Benin, Cameroon, DRC, Ethiopia, Nigeria, and Tanzania) or smaller classroom may consider selecting one country in which to focus. Classrooms who select to work with Benin, Cameroon and/or the DRC must be fully fluent in French.

This placement is offered under our E-Volunteering Classroom Program and is reserved for Canadian post-secondary instructors only. For more information about the classroom e-volunteering program, or to apply for this project, please email or visit our website at:
