Community Connections Belarus
Theme: Women’s Leadership
Language: Belarusian, Russian, and/or varying levels of English
Number of Participants: 10 (Learn some more about our participants below!)
Ten women leaders in the fields of law, journalism, and non-profit work will be in Louisville for three weeks. This project connects professionals from Belarus with their Kentucky/Southern Indiana counterparts through a carefully tailored professional exchange. Participants will establish professional connections, learn about the advantages and disadvantages of a democratic, free-market economy, and examine best practices/experiences that may be adopted back home to address their local challenges. Funded by USAID, Community Connections is being nationally managed by our partner, World Learning, and locally implemented by World Affairs Council of Kentucky & Southern Indiana.
WAC is currently in need of host families for this “Women’s Leadership” program from Belarus. Hosting is an unbeatable way to learn more about the world and make lasting friendships; an experience you can’t get any other way.
