Leadership Development Programme (LDP) 2016

The Leadership Development Programme a.k.a. LDP seeks to meet the challenge of the dearth of female leadership. The programme’s philosophy is leadership through self-leadership and social responsibility. Its theoretical part aims at energizing participants to be change agents, instilling leadership qualities and professionalism at work and providing entrepreneurship skills. The practical part – leadership in action – aims at social responsibility through community development projects and other volunteer work experience,Afara Makes A Difference(AMAD) for example.

The leadership and entrepreneurship project presents the participants with an avenue not only aimed at receiving and assimilating the ideas transmitted in the lecture sessions but it also provides a platform for the young ladies, where they get to share entrepreneurial skills with people in small businesses and rural areas in the country that obviously have not experienced such wholesome training in business like they have.

The young ladies achieve these goals in a set-up that gives room for them to interact as a team, appreciate their skills and differences and build up the virtues in that area. As they camp together during the execution of these projects, living together exposes them solidly to the reality of self- knowledge, acceptance, improvement and management which also facilitates their leading others in the right path to achieve the common goals shared.

LDP 2015 is coming to an end and LDP 2016 is about to kick off. Do pick a form at Afara Leadership Centre and start off on that path to be the leader you ought to be!
