Writing for The Chronicle, Xinchen Li describes DukeEngage’s strong connection to the Women’s Institute of Secondary Education and Research (WISER).
“In a rural region of Kenya, where only about seven percent of all girls finish high school, 32 girls graduated in June as the fifth graduating class of a secondary school. The school? A groundbreaking program jump-started by Duke and supported by DukeEngage.
The Women’s Institute of Secondary Education and Research, or WISER, is an organization that aims to empower underprivileged girls by providing quality secondary education and essential resources. The WISER Girls Secondary School is based in Muhuru Bay, a small town in western Kenya.”
