Our report brings out the capacity development of women leaders in the political sector, women and youth in agri-business and natural resource management contributing to green employment, women leaders in the informal sector (street vendors & hawkers) and many others to claim their equal rights to lead and be heard.
We efficaciously concluded two projects one in Democracy and Good governance practice that earned WLEDE a renewal of the grant to scale up the activities in other regions of the country.
