The applicants were invited to submit:

(2) A brief essay on the topic Women, education and empowerment, explaining a particular challenge s/he had faced by not knowing a foreign language, and/or the opportunity it represent for women's economic empowerment.

These essays will soon be published as blogs on Empower Women for exposure to hundreds of thousands of people from around the world.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all the applicants for their submissions. While not everyone was selected as a winner this time, we hope to engage with you on the Empower Women platform. Please follow our updates of Events and Opportunities for further engagement possibilities. Stay tuned for Empower Women in Arabic, French and Spanish.
