This program is central to the realization of our vision because it takes confidence to transform society positively.
The expected outcome of this program is confident leaders who confront and address modern-day leadership challenges. To contribute to this outcome, CTL has designed interventions around three key components namely:
Women Leadership: We want to promote women’s participation in public leadership. Our focus will be to nurture women to engage confidently in political processes towards full implementation of the two-third gender rule. We want to challenge women to discover the leader within, to ask who they are, who they want to be, how they want to get there, and to challenge their mental models on what their contribution to a just society looks like. We want to increase awareness of women’s rights and enhance their ability to effectively participate in decision making and policy formation as equal partners towards protecting their basic rights, secure respect in society and achieve their full potential.
Institutional Strengthening: Over the course of this strategic plan, we will strengthen the leadership capacity of persons on the demand and supply side. Such groups include citizen oversight groups, elected leaders such as MCAs, and public servants including Ward Administrators, Village Elders, and Sub-County Administrators. By doing so, we will be increasing their confidence levels and enhancing their ability to find creative solutions to the challenges that citizens in their areas of jurisdictions face.
Youth Economic Leadership: We will expand our youth targeted program, Ignite Leadership Program (ILP) to provide young people, both male and female, with the requisite tools they need to lead themselves and lead others. Through ILP, we will help young people aged between 18 and 25 to develop the right frame of mind of what true leadership entails so they can steer themselves as well as others, in the right direction for purposes of achieving desired results.
