Fellow Since 2007
This description of Rosalie Ouoba's work was prepared when Rosalie Ouoba was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2007.
After leading West Africa’s largest self-promotion program for farmers, Rosalie Ouoba is bringing the voice of rural women to bear in West African affairs through the Union of Rural Women of West Africa and Chad (UFROAT). Determined to legitimize the contributions of rural women in the development dialogue, Rosalie is eliminating intermediaries and providing critical communication skills through a regional network based on national and sub-regional associations of women.
