Editor's Note: This is a previous update on Ms. JD's Global Education Fund. Each year, the Ms. JD Global Education Fund (GEF) has made it possible for two young Ugandan women, to pursue their dreams of becoming lawyers by attending the law program at Makerere University in Uganda. Ms. JD's Third Annual Global Education Fund Benefit will be held on August 5, 2015 from 6:30-10 pm at Monarch SF in San Francisco. The benefit will raise funds for GEF and include live entertainment, a silent auction (with items totaling over $20,000 in value) and great food and networking. Please click here to purchase your ticket or donate to GEF. Click here to view a video from last year's scholars. Thank you for your support!
.Ms. JD launched its Global Education Fund with inaugural scholars Joaninne Nanyange and Monica Athieno. Thanks to the generosity of Sullivan & Cromwell, Ms. JD hosted an event in New York City to celebrate the launch of the Global Education Fund. At the event, we premiered this wonderful video update on the program, featuring remarks by the scholars and Catherine Kanabahita of the Gender Mainstreaming Directorate at Makerere University. We hope you find it as inspirational as we did!
