Review for Centre for Development and Population Activities, Washington, DC, USA

Rating: 5 stars

These alumni are now working at the community and national level to make a profound difference for women and children in their country, and to a person they tell us that they wouldn't be where they are without the leadership training CEDPA provided them.
