Development models & theories and HDI: This is the topic of today's conversation.
We are going focus on the role of women in the challenge to address development. We are going to look at how women and girls play a critical role in determining the rate at which a nation develops. We will also examine how microcredit loans (micro-financing) has played a critical role in many communities in providing women an opportunity to enter the formal economy and lift their family and communities out poverty and raise the standard of living.
We will also have some students presenting their Interim Summative Presentations today.
