These women have gone on to be contributing immensely in their various places of work, both at the governmental and private levels

The current number of female students 32 out of the 132 newly enrolled students are females. 

“WASCAL believes in gender balance, and especially in the capabilities of the African woman, and what they are capable of doing. So on this day of International Women’s Day, we take the opportunity to congratulate all of them for their immense contribution in the promotion of climate change. Congratulations to all women” He said
