Call for Applications, 2023 to 2024, first Cohort of Fellows

In partnership with United Nations Democracy Fund (UNDEF), Puntland Minority Women Development Organisation on the proposed project plans to place young professional fellows who are from minority communities as workers in local government offices and similar decision-making structures.  Minority fellows will act as a bridge across the trust divide. They will earn the respect of civil servants as a result of their work and contribution. They will share their knowledge of how local government functions and how to best influence decisions with their communities.  Minority clan members are disproportionately excluded from local decision-making across Somalia and they do not have trust in mechanisms to include and listen to them.
