SHF: Young Scholar Program

From April 2024, the Sasakawa Health Foundation, together with Felehansen in Colombia and PerMaTa-YDTI in Indonesia, will launch a trial that aims to establish a new system to sustainably identify and nurture new leaders who can serve as role models for others affected by leprosy, and to strengthen people’s organisations through the development of new leaders. In both Colombia and Indonesia, two young people affected by leprosy who fulfil a set of criteria will be selected and given the opportunity to spend a year learning, practising and connecting with like-minded people around the world. They are supported and supervised by a team of mentors from Felehansen and PerMaTa. The training includes setting up their own small project to support people affected by leprosy and reduce stigmatisation. We wish the candidates who wish to apply the best of luck!
