This online webinar is designed for Laidlaw Scholars wanting to find out more about taking part in the RISE project in Tanzania this summer.

The RISE Programme aims to build the skills, confidence and local enabling environment for young people living on the periphery of the Mkingu Forest Nature Reserve (MFNR). This summer, 16 Laidlaw Scholars will take key roles as passionate young people in supporting the Youth Enterprise Groups (YEG’s), an integral part of the RISE programme.

The webinar will provide an overview of the programme, how it fits with Laidlaw’s objectives, a practical timeline (pre-departure through to end of programme), the outcome/aims of the project and the application process. There will also be plenty of opportunities to answer questions.
