Founder of WOW Foundation, #JudeKelly, and Sosan Aziz discussing the Women of the World festival and #Hunza as part of the global WOW network. Jude shares an image of a maternity home in South America built by the women of its community, drastically improving the infant mortality rate.
Sosan is the recipient of the #britishcheveningscholarship in 2007. She completed an MSc in Gender and Development from the Institute of Development Studies at #universityofsussex
She is currently employed at Economic Transformation Initiative, #Gilgit-Baltistan (ETI-GB) as the Manager, Gender and Poverty. This is the sixth non-profit project she has been a part of and has an overall experience of 20 years working in the social development sector.
Sosan hails from a small village #gulmit #gojal located in the beautiful landscape of Hunza, Gilgit-Balistan. Her experience of studying from the #UK allowed her the opportunity to work in her hometown in diverse roles including a forester, community mobiliser and a gender advisor.
She believes that studying in the UK has given her a major advantage to her professionally, and encourages young students especially females to pursue higher education and become equal members of the workforce.
