Our History

Women Leadership Development – WLEDE is a non-profit organization established in October 2012 to develop leadership capacity, and make proactive women and youth leaders to enable them contribute and sustain the development of the nation through good governance and respecting human dignity.

We recognize 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 move them towards accomplishing goals of beneficial performance 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 is a vehicle for developing high caliber 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.
