Meet Our 2021-2022 Fellows

GHC is honored to launch our newest fellow cohort of changemakers in Malawi, Rwanda, Uganda, and Zambia. They were competitively selected, representing just 2% of the thousands of applicants who applied.

With a third wave of COVID-19 on the rise and the majority of the population still unvaccinated in East and Southern Africa, it’s a critical time to invest in young, proximate leaders in the region.

What We're Building:





Who leaders are and how they operate can be a matter of life and death for the communities they serve, especially during crises. GHC is mobilizing our network of leaders as a powerful antidote to the effects of COVID-19.

Fellowship Program

The GHC fellowship recruits and trains talented young leaders with a wide range of skill sets and backgrounds. Fellows make an impact though 13-month placements in global health organizations in Malawi, Rwanda, Uganda, and Zambia. They access robust training, mentorship, coaching, and resources, and engage in GHC’s global network throughout and beyond the fellowship year.
