Journey to Leadership seminar, Burundi


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 from Australia are currently implementing the project in their countries.  

The project has been funded with the support from the European Commission, Youth in Action programme.

Start following the daily updates on the project today!

Dear all participants and planning team members at the WLDP seminar in Burundi,
Your journey to Burundi has come to a pit stop where you hopefully all will feel the joy of both getting filled up with energy and enthusiasm as well as the joy of giving and sharing your experiences with peer friends. May you find fruitful discussions, new discoveries about your leadership competences, and may you go back to your home associations and share your achievements there.

Enjoy the seminar and each other,

Anne Rise
Leadership Development Consultant
