Harvard University launches Benazir Bhutto Leadership Programme


Classmates of former Pakistani Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto have started an international leadership course in the name of the slain Pakistan People’s Party leader at her alma mater, Harvard University.
The program was started by social welfare service organisation Class Achieving Change Together (ClassACT HR73) which was formed by class fellows of slain Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) leader Benazir Bhutto at Harvard University.

BBLP comprises several components. A fellowship at the Harvard Kennedy School, a mentoring programme and an educational outreach initiative.

The initiative aims first for women applicants from Islamic countries, ranging from Lebanon to Bangladesh.

The fellows will then be expected to return to their home countries and to apply what they have learned through leadership in politics, or public or private administration, that will lead to principle based change.

The programme aims to create a significant network of fellows and associates, current scholars already at Harvard — who, over time, will support each other, enhancing the likelihood of their success.

The first fellows are slated to arrive at Harvard during the fall of 2018.
