Local Economic Development: Leading Sustainable Development and Poverty Alleviation
None of the great social problems we have to solve is capable of resolution outside the context of the creation of jobs and the alleviation and eradication of poverty.

Purpose of Programme
The most important pillar in poverty alleviation is a Local Economic Development (LED) process that leads to the empowerment of communities to such an extent that they become the builders of their own sustainable economic future.

LeadAfrika has established itself as a leading role player within the development arena in Southern Africa. Our unique holistic approach to LED derives from an integrated systems-based process embedding own experience, best practices and a pro-active effort to develop and implement practical and meaningful solutions.

Gender Based Violence Management 
“Related to this is the matter of violence against women and children. Every day the media covers horrific stories of ill-treatment, abuse, rape and violence against women and children. Clearly, we cannot proudly proclaim that we are a free nation while women and children are, themselves, not free to enjoy our freedom. To correct this, men have an important role to play in advancing affirmative social values and mending the social fabric that is clearly been torn apart by the behavior of those who, in reality, are behaving like animals.”

Purpose of Programme

The project focuses on leadership development within government as well as within civil society organisations. The process is to develop and deliver an outcomes-based learning programme on transformational leadership development to increase and improve services and care for victims / survivors of gender-based violence. The main aim is to reduce gender-based violence across sectors in South Africa and to promote the rights and the economic and political empowerment of those who are subject to gender-based violence.
