As we celebrate International Women's Day, we are approaching our 9th Women’s Institute on Leadership and Disability (WILD) in Eugene, Oregon, which will bring together 25 disabled women activists from Afghanistan, Albania, Armenia, Bangladesh, Burundi, Cambodia, Cameroon, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Ghana, Haiti, Jordan, Malawi, Mongolia, Myanmar, Nepal, Nigeria, Panama, Philippines, Romania, Tanzania, Turkey, Uruguay, Vanuatu, and Zimbabwe.
MIUSA will also be convening the next phase of our Regional WILD program in Sri Lanka, with women coming from Nepal, China, Sri Lanka, and India in May 2019.
We want to honor and acknowledge disabled women activists and other allies around the world - including many international development organizations - who are leading the way to include disabled women and girls as leaders and participants in all their programs.
