News and Blogs

In this issue of the semi-annual newsletter, we take an in-depth look at how CARTA adapted to going virtual and local to keep the program moving. We talk to our co-director, Catherine Kyobutungi, about CARTA’s journey during the pandemic, the Program’s foray into the virtual realm, and the innovative transitions that have taken place so far. Our graduates also share their accounts of how they adapted to research and teaching in the new era. Besides, one of our latest graduates, Marie Chantal Uwimana from the University of Rwanda talks to us about her PhD journey, the lessons she learned, and most importantly, her progress despite the challenges during the COVID-19 pandemic.

In essence, we bring you stories of fellows, graduates, focal persons and partners; of their innovative, creative and triumphant ways, and of the progress, they have made as they worked, taught, and attended meetings and conferences virtually.

Happy reading!
