The McLarty family announced on Monday that two University of Arkansas Clinton School of Public Service students, Arjola Limani and Yvonne Quek, have been selected as this year’s McLarty Global Fellows. During their fellowships at Vital Voices Global Partnership, Limani and Quek will conduct research projects focusing on human rights and advancing women’s economic empowerment.
Arjola Limani will help monitor and evaluate the effectiveness of the Vital Voices Global Freedom Exchange Program, which seeks to end child sex trafficking.
Yvonne Quek will join impact assessment efforts for the Vital Voices GROW Fellowship, a business accelerator and leadership development program for women owners of small and medium sized businesses in Latin America, the Caribbean, Middle East, North Africa and sub-Saharan Africa.
Limani and Quek are the third class of McLarty Global Fellows to be granted semester-long fellowships at Vital Voices.
