Women's Leadership & Development Program

Despite evidence of sustainable effective programs changing lives, there is still donor reluctance to fund women-led organizations in the Global South. According to an OECD report one of the reasons for this reluctance include concerns over perceived financial and reputational risks, resulting in donors funding larger organizations in the North. There’s also a perception that southern-based organizations have less capacity to deliver at scale and to report in ways that meets donor requirements.

Tallawah’s training program is designed to fill this gap. We build the capacity of women leaders to run their organisations more effectively including in board governance, strategic planning, finance and budgeting, marketing and innovation. Using the PIVOTTTM 
Transformational Leadership Program we train women leaders to develop these critical leadership and business skills so that they can better access and manage resources needed to run their organisations, and pass on their new competencies.
