AF has started to implement the “Leaders Empowered and Dedicated to Serve through the NGO Sector Program” (LEAD to Serve), a project designed to address leadership issues identified in the Leadership Transition Study completed by AF earlier this year. To begin the program, a workshop was held on 25-26 June 2018 to identify competencies of a good NGO leader and define these in more observable and verifiable behaviors. It was facilitated by Ms. Vicki Alcoseba, a consultant for the project.

The NGO leadership competencies identified and defined in this workshop will guide the development of the framework that will provide the anchor on which development interventions of the LEAD to Serve program shall be designed.
