Women Leadership Development

WLEDE is an abbreviation for Women Leadership Development. WLEDE is a non-profit organisation established in October 2012 to develop leadership capacity, and make pro-active women and youth leaders to enable them contribute and sustain the development of the nation through good governance and respecting human dignity. Its office is located on2ND FLOOR MATEEKA HOUSE Naguru, Kampala

We recognised that, for women and youth leaders to play their role in the development of the nation, their leadership capacity must be enhanced. This involves the discipline of deliberately exerting special influence to women and youth leaders to move them towards accomplishing goals of beneficial permanence in order to address their real needs. For any nation to develop there needs to be cutting edge leadership, continuous knowledge generation, dissemination and innovation to ensure good governance and sustainability.

WLEDE guides and promotes actions that build sustainable leadership in women and youth leaders. It will be a vehicle for developing high calibre of women and youth leaders, a requisite to attain quality political participation, sustain good governance and uphold human dignity.

We develop relevant cutting edge leadership capacity development programs as well as build a base of trainers in order to sustain women and youth leadership.

WLEDE exists to address the leadership skills gaps in Women and youth Leaders. Leadership is effective when it shifts from individual merit and effort to gain credibility and involvement of the people it represents for the development of communities.
