WE ARE ON A MISSION
Why Design Fellowship?
There is an urgency in addressing the myriad of challenges in Africa and it is important to adopt approaches that provide the opportunity
for better outcomes and improved equity. The continuing challenges in Africa require home-grown solutions that are developed as a result of
the joint participation of the people, stakeholders, and designers that have a unique understanding of context and culture.
There is a need for talent in design thinking. This fellowship is for graduates from any discipline with an interest in building a career in design; and with the increasing interest in the role of design and innovation in solving some of the biggest development challenges and systemic problems in Africa, the fellowship will focus on incorporating HCD in the development of innovations that will lead to a better society.
