Beatrice Achieng Nas, B.A.: Women in Africa: Where is the Wasted Potential?
Lunchtime Seminar October 17, 2013 (31:18 min.)

Beatrice Achieng NasBeatrice Achieng Nas works with the program IREX, a Community Solutions Program, which works to help individuals and institutions build up vibrant societies – focusing on education, media, and strong communities. Beatrice has been working with communities focusing on education and empowerment for girls. In this lunchtime seminar, Beatrice talked about women in Africa and her own personal life story. Women in Africa are the untapped resources for development. They have potential, but it is often buried by traditions passed on by or from their parents, grandparents, and great grandparents. Education is the only tool that is able to tap into the potential African women have and to boost development in Africa. An accompanying video about Beatrice's work can be found here.
