Congratulations to Ladybrille Woman Alum, SARAN KABA JONES, who spoke alongside 2014 Nobel Peace Laureate Kailash Satyarthi, among others, on the topic of ‘What Makes Civil Society Tick.’
The Ladybrille woman alum took to her social media pages to share the following:
“That proud moment when your panel with two Nobel Laureates is televised on Deutsche Welle TV Germany. And you kinda held your own. And your organization receives a $150,000 pledge from the Robert Bosche Foundation — which will go towards our work in Liberia. And you realize the work, though hard and challenging at times… is not in vain. Because if not you, then who?”
Indeed. Keep up the good job Saran.
