Building Young Leaders

This quarter, the LEAD team has been busy working with the girls to develop their leadership skills. Before the term began, we created a new and improved leadership curriculum covering topics such as; leadership traits, communication styles, and public speaking. The girls have been loving the sessions, especially one session in which they had the opportunity to chat with a local role model named Harriet Anyango.

Harriet was a beneficiary of FICH's secondary school girls program when she attended Iceme Girls SS. Her participation in the program helped her to become a leader in her school and attend the No.1 university in Uganda, Makerere University. She has now since graduated with a degree in business and entrepreneurship and begun working with various youth empowerment programs in Northern Uganda. Harriet was invited to speak with the girls about her story and answer their questions about being a leader. 

We are extremely proud of Harriet and all the girls currently particpating in the LEAD program. They have all shown improvement in their self-confidence, communication skills, and ability to express their ideas. This term, the girls will have the opportunity to showcase these skills to the broader community in a public speaking competition. During the competition each girl will present a 5 minute speech to judges and an audience. Also invited are other local role models and even a Member of Parliament. 

The LEAD team is also planning for the next term. The topic for Term 2 will be self-awareness and the sessions will guide the girls through emotional intelligence, reflective journaling, and understanding your own strengths and weaknesses. These topics will be quite new to the girls and we look forward to sharing their progress with you!
