Hi my name is Millie Rasekoala, and I am here to invite you to our African Women Leadership and Mental wellbeing Programme starting on
the 20th of November 2021. This is a new cohort from the first group that finished on the 25th of September 2021

From the 28th of August 2021 to 25th September 2021, every Saturday, for 5 weeks, women from over 23 countries in Africa, the
Maldives, Australia, New Zealand and the United States gathered together to explore leadership concepts such as Integrity, Forgiveness,
Resilience, Abuse of Power and Strategies for Mental Wellbeing.  

Initial Feedback has been that the course has been transformative and what has been learnt is being applied to enhance relationships, 
improve leadership styles and to heal deep seated resentments.

The feedback has led to a high demand for the programme, with many women requesting regionally or country focused programmes.
 Some graduates of the programme have formed groups to tackle issues and challenges raised during the sessions, Kenyan women for
example have formed a group to petition their government to address the issue of domestic workers in foreign countries being abused.  
Others like the Nigerian women are already preparing for a Nigerian women focused course for as early as February 2022.  African women living in the United States have requested a programme for their region to ensure women in the diaspora are not excluded.

We are now in the process of training and developing others to deliver this programme in all parts of Africa.  This includes facilitators,
technical support personnel, moderators and videographers. 

"The African continent calls itself home to a generous 1.8 billion people. With Africa’s population set to double over the next 30 years
and as we are set to be home to over 1.7bn people under the age of 25, Africa will  have the highest working-age population on the
planet"

This is all the more reason to develop the  leadership skills of  our burgeoning population. We have not scratched the surface in terms of
the numbers that we want to reach. 

Your continued support of this initiative is what will keep the dream alive, in creating an Africa that works for all.  

It is fitting to quote a participant who said: 

‘Thank you very much to the organisers and sponsors for the course. I had so much load I was carrying which affected my leadership.
But after this course, a lot was learnt, burdens lifted, and hope restored. Forever grateful’.
