ANNOUNCING IMPACT WEST AFRICA
In late summer 2023, New Voices will launch a West African regional Fellowship cohort with partner organization, NIYEL. The fellowship will spotlight 10 advocates, from French speaking and English speaking West African countries, unifying West Africa’s Francophone and Anglophone development priorities and driving new cross-border alliances to tackle common challenges that affect close to half a billion people across the region’s 17 countries.
The Aspen Global Innovators Group and Niyel both have extensive, proven experience in bringing people together to create positive change and have devoted time to laying the foundation of the West Africa Fellowship. We see this investment as an innovative opportunity to champion large-scale challenges and implement local change with regional and global impact.
Deepening Community Support
To support the vibrant community of 187 Senior Fellows, New Voices will offer additional funding, training and speaking opportunities to the entire community, working to amplify Senior Fellows' important messages.
Offering Tailored Trainings
As New Voices enters its 10th year, the program will begin offering tailored trainings to other Fellowship initiatives and organizations who desire communications and advocacy training. Tailored training opportunities will involve 2 - 3 day trainings on selected communications and advocacy topics to help organizations communicate and advocate more effectively.
