Europe-Africa Journey to Leadership / WLDP in Action
19 August 2011
Journey to Leadership is a joint leadership development project between the WAGGGS Europe and Africa regions, based on the WAGGGS Leadership Development Programme (WLDP).
The project includes three main activities:
1. Research into women’s leadership and partnership in project participants’ countries and UN Millennium Development Goal (MDG) 3 and MDG 8.
2. A high-profile WLDP training event in Bujumbura (Burundi) from 4 to 10 September 2011 where participants will learn how to lead others in complex situations, handle change, promote gender equality, develop partnership and advocacy projects.
3. Following the WLDP event, participants will undertake cooperative advocacy projects on MDG 3 and MDG 8 in their countries, thereby sharing their learning and leadership skills with many more Girl Guides and Girl Scouts, helping them to change their world.
Young women from 13 Associations from the Africa Region, 13 Associations from the Europe Region and 2 women fromAustraliaare currently implementing the project in their countries.
Daily updates on the event will be provided on the WAGGGS website and the regional websites from 5 to 10 September, so stay tuned!
The project has been funded with the support from the European Commission, Youth in Action programme.
