Drawing on Experiences from Afghanistan and East Africa
The 2012 University Seminar Series will focus on the challenges and successes of education in the developing world – particularly for girls and women. This year’s distinguished speakers are Dr. Jane Rarieya, Associate Professor and Head of Teaching Programmes at Aga Khan University’s Institute for Educational Development in Tanzania, and Ms. Jennifer Blinkhorn, Director of Education with Aga Khan Foundation Afghanistan. Drawing on examples from Afghanistan and East Africa, the speakers will provide a window into the educational context of their respective regions, particularly the barriers overcome by girls who succeed in school and continue on to higher learning.
