Trainers trained in Transformational Leadership Development Programme

Sometimes a little inspiration goes a long way.  

This was one of the expectation from the twenty four participants at the  Transformational Leadership Development Programme: Training of Trainers. 

The seven-day training, targets key community leaders, NGO representative and government personnel and will help in developing a contextualised leadership programme to address the key women’s representation issues in Samoa. 

These include the low representation of women on boards, in Parliament, in village development committees and women matais.  

Organised and facilitated by Women in Leadership Samoa (WILS) Project, a three – year United Nations Joint project implemented by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and United Nations Women (UN Women) Agency, with funding from the Australian Government and the Government of Samoa.  

 “My expectation for this training is to ensure that I learn new set of skills and knowledge, that will enable me to train and empower other young females in my communities to be able to do something useful with their lives,” says Falenaoti June Ailuai, from Vavau.

At the end of the training, the participants will be able to design an initiative supporting women and their leadership in Samoa using the TLDP methodology. Also to conduct the TOT for participants on the TLDP in relation to leadership.
