Humphrey Students Complete Capstone Focused on Women & Gender

The MoSAIC Process

Humphrey School of Public Affairs graduate students June Nkwenge (MDP ‘17) , Yu Sun (MPP ‘17), Claire Psarouthakis (MPP ‘17), and Alex Cheatham (MPP ‘18) completed their final capstone graduate project in May of this year. The study focused on developing a monitoring and evaluation system as well as an RFP process for Mossier (originally MoSAIC), a nonprofit organization focused on LGBTQ economic empowerment. Mossier focuses its activities on empowering LGBTQ individuals in countries without LGBTQ protections. The study emphasized feminist and developmental evaluation methods that involved significant stakeholder input from the affected communities in Kampala, Uganda, with a special focus on transgender and other sexual and gender minorities in the area. Through this work the capstone group and Mossier hope to shift traditional funding mechanisms into a more equitable and feminist space with a special focus on the needs of marginalized LGBTQ communities around the globe.
