160 Aspiring Women Leaders From Rural Hurungwe and Goromonzi Successfully Trained On Leadership




Between 12-16 December 2022, WALPE in partnership with WLSA with support from the Embassy of Netherlands conducted capacity building sessions in Transformative Feminist Leadership in Goromonzi and Hurungwe Districts respectively. The trainings enhanced capacities of 160 aspiring women leaders in marginalized communities to lead and drive development and advocacy for gender equality and inclusion of women in all leadership and decision making processes.





Topics covered under the trainings included:
• Transformative feminist leadership,
• Managing political campaigns,
• Public speaking and speech writing,
• Negotiation and consensus building,
• Social accountability,
• Social media and digital training,
• Resilience building and;
• Sexual reproductive health rights and climate change.




The trainings shape the capacities of women socially, economically and politically through mentorship and capacity building in transformative feminist leadership. The all-inclusive approach to women leadership empowerment assists women beyond occupying leadership positions through enhanced skills and techniques in advocating and lobbying for community justice.
