Sujoyini in Liberia: A bit about work

WAPPP summer fellow, Sujoyini Mandal (MPP 2013), is interning in Liberia's Ministry of Gender and Development this summer. She's been a prolific blogger already, sharing her experiences working with the Ministry as they prepare their 5- year strategic plan for the National Gender Policy. Here's a highlight from her recent post:
Sujoyini in Liberia: A bit about work
Liberia’s vision 2030 sees the small West African country as a middle-income nation, ruled by democratic principles and well on the way to economic stability.
