More than 50 participants have graduated from Coady’s off-campus offerings over the past month.

In Kenya, participants from eight countries completed the Building on Local and Indigenous Knowledges for Community Resilience certificate, offered in partnership with COMPAS Africa Network and Institute for Culture and Ecology (ICE).

Elsewhere, participants from eight countries completed the Livelihoods and Markets certificate in Ethiopia. The Organization for Women in Self-Employment (WISE) partnered with Coady for the program.

Participants are also on campus at St. Francis Xavier University for courses in Diploma in Development Leadership; Advocacy: Increasing Citizen Voice and Agency; Action Research for Citizen-Led Change; and Facilitation and Training Approaches for Community Change. The Oceanpath Fellowship and Indigenous Women in Community Leadership participants are working in various communities for the fieldwork component of their respective programs. Four women research fellows are on campus to conduct research and shared learning.

The next off-campus program, Community-Based Microfinance for Financial Inclusion, will be offered in Ethiopia in November and India in December.
