CAS, SAWBO SEEK MOZAMBICAN PARTNERS
Supported by a grant from the International Strategic International Partnerships (ISIP), CAS Director Merle Bowen and Entymology Professor Barry Pittendrigh visited Mozambique in October. They held meetings with a number of potential partners about linking with Scientific Animations Without Borders (SAWBO), a U of I project which specializes in development education. The U of I team , which also included Dr. Julia Bello-Bravo of SAWBO, visited the Informatics Center at Eduardo Mondlane University, the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, the Ministry of Health and the Agricultural Research Institute.
The Center for African Studies and SAWBO are grateful for the funding support from ISIP and are confident that this visit will lead to an extensive range of partnerships on developing and disseminating SAWBO materials to a wide range of Mozambican communities in the near future.
