The African Women's Leadership Training Institute (WLTI) is a partnership between the GRACE Church and ALARM (African Leadership and Reconciliation Ministry) to equip and empower female leaders in Rwanda, Africa to be servant leaders who are agents of reconciliation, peace building and community transformation.
Phase I included training 55 leaders who came from all over the country of Rwanda, representing different denominations and tribes. Over a three year period, the women participated in nine conferences focused on reconciling relationships and a variety topics related to leadership, trauma recovery, biblical theology and economic development. You can read more about these women and their stories on our website.
These leaders have taken their newly developed skills and knowledge to lead, train, and disciple other men and women in their churches and communities. The positive impact is being multiplied through their lives and leadership.
Phase II is all about expanding the reach and empowering more leaders.
Phase II includes selecting 25 WLTI graduates who will become Trainers of Trainers (TOT) through participating in two training conferences and ongoing coaching.
After completing the TOT training these 25 leaders will be divided into 5 Regional Training Teams. These Regional Teams will then offer the 3-year WLTI in their respective provinces allowing the WLTI to expand throughout the country of Rwanda. These Regional Training Teams will be able to train another 250 leaders and be able to reach leaders in very remote locations with little to no access to training.
By building into these leaders not only are individual lives being transformed the impact is being seen in families, churches, and communities -- leaving a impact that will last for generations.

WHY WE ARE EXCITED ABOUT THIS PARTNERSHIP
ALARM recognizes the key role that women play in positively transforming their communities. The saying “educate a woman and you educate a community” has been tried and tested over and over again.
Women across the continent of Africa have often been marginalized and sidelined as a result of socio-cultural beliefs, political circumstances and traditionally patriarchal leadership systems that have excluded them. However, the resilience and strength of many of these women, despite extreme hardship, is creating vital space for them to play a significant role in the transformation of Africa through leadership, economic development, peace building and self-sufficiency.
