On Gender, Surrogacy, and Health Technologies: Naipanoi Lepapa at Davidson College


Pulitzer Center grantee and 2023 AI Accountability Fellow Naipanoi Lepapa will visit Davidson College March 11-12, 2024. She will be a guest in seminar classes, meet with students, and deliver a keynote presentation on her Pulitzer Center-supported work.

Lepapa, who is based in Nairobi, Kenya, contributed to The Baby Broker Project. The sprawling investigation tells the story of one of the world’s most-successful, low-cost surrogacy agencies, New Life. Journalists from Mexico, Georgia, the U.K., Estonia, Kenya, and Cambodia documented opaque ownership structures, a practice of recruiting vulnerable women to carry donor children, and questionable commercial offerings.

The Davidson College Dean Rusk International Studies Program is collaborating with the campus library, E.H. Little Library to host a library exhibit inspired by Lepapa's work featuring related books. The exhibit will be displayed through the month of March.

Lepapa is currently reporting as a 2023 Pulitzer Center AI Accountability Fellow.
