AWLO is proactive about cultivating leadership even at an early age. It is our belief that issues of dysfunctional leadership can be curbed by instilling the values of leadership in our tomorrow’s leaders today.
This project is targeted at pupils/students between ages 5 and 17 in schools who are young leaders, and prospective leaders.
Inclusion in iLead is through iLead clubs, leadership debates, summits, and activities to stimulate young minds and build capacity for leadership.
At the inaugural event of iLead on May 6 2016, a set of young female leaders emerged and we’re made iLead Proponents a.k.a.next generation female leaders. The set consisted of Prefects, and other young female leaders between ages 7 and 17.
They agreed upon a resolution that was endorsed by key stakeholders in leadership such as Heads of Government, Common Wealth youth delegates, UN Ambassadors, Heads of Schools, Representatives of Government Parastatals, and Heads of Leadership Institutions.
The iLead proponents resolved to stand in the gap as champions of responsible leadership for the common goal of building Africa. They pledged their support as partners and stakeholders for the economic, environmental, social and political development of Africa, as defined in the Global Goals for Sustainable Development and called on governments, civil society organisations, NGOs, International donor partners and other stakeholders to also partner with African Women in Leadership Organisation for reforms as it affects the next generation leaders.
iLead is equipping Africa’s Next Generation of female leaders with knowledge and skills in leadership, making them more competent and confident to drive transformative change on the Continent.
