Launching Educational Programs in Africa

Wendell Adjetey (History and African American Studies) and Etienne Mashuli (African Studies) have won a highly competitive fellowship from Echoing Green, a global nonprofit organization, to launch the Tujenge Africa Foundation in Burundi. More than 3,500 projects were submitted to Echoing Green for funding; only 52 were chosen.

Adjetey and Mashuli will use the grant to launch the Tujenge Africa Foundation and establish the first English language preparatory school and public library in Bujumbura, Burundi. Echoing Green will provide seed funding, mentoring, and leadership opportunities for two years.
