Our Model

our modelWe do believe that a leader must first discover and know who they are before attempting to make any change in society. This is because like Gandhi said, all change starts with the self. We use the tools of storytelling and reflection in this phase.
our modelFor leaders to have any influence, they must connect with people. The core of leadership is people. So, how does a leader connect with people? How do they synergize and achieve success? In this phase, image, networking and ability to communicate are of paramount importance. We also provide those avenues where the leaders meet and network.
our modelLeadership is about results. It’s about making a real tangible difference in the lives of communities. For instance, how does a leader consolidate their knowledge, skills and networks to touch the lives of the vulnerable members of society? What platforms do they use to make the change? We also link them to internships and job opportunities in the course of the program, to help them put into practice what they learn as well as earn a livelihood.
At Emerging Leaders Foundation, our focus is to grow a society full of young people who live purposeful lives and contribute meaningfully to nation building and policy processes. I deeply believe in the pursuit of happiness in life, and achieving harmony with fellow humans and nature. Every individual, whether male or female, young or old, must be able to enjoy these rights. I have come to the realization that this is largely dependent on being able to discover our reason for being, purpose.”Caren Wakoli
