This fact sheet shares an overview of five HED higher education partnerships between U.S. and host-country higher education institutions involved in the Women's Leadership Program.

Funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) through Higher Education for Development (HED), these partnerships in Armenia, Paraguay, Rwanda, and South Sudan are participants in a broad effort known as the Women’s Leadership Program. Each partnership targets specific development sectors such as agriculture or education, but all seek to support national and local development goals that promote gender equality and female empowerment.
