The University of Washington School of Public Health has named former ICWA fellow Onyinye Edeh (Nigeria, 2016-2018) one of 50 Changemakers of Public Health—alumni who have demonstrated distinguished service and achievement.

“Onyinye has touched the lives of thousands of women and girls in Nigeria, Kenya and other parts of Africa,” her Changemaker profile reads. “Through her nonprofit, the Strong Enough Girls’ Empowerment Initiative (SEGEI), marginalized women and girls in low-resource settings have received mentorship, sexual and reproductive health education, and school support—from school tuition and supplies to sanitary pads.”
