Four of Côte d’Ivoire’s 2014 Mandela Washington Fellowship alumni led an event in the Embassy for a diverse audience of youth leaders, students, and exchange program alumni surrounding the livestream of the President’s speech from Washington.

Côte d’Ivoire has twelve Mandela Washington Fellows participating for 2015, three of whom will be continuing on to internships following the town hall which concluded the six week program.

Our 2014 alumni spoke about their experiences in the U.S., about the application process, and about how they have been using what they learned to give back to Côte d’Ivoire.
