Uganda Leadership Pioneers


Delivering improved services to communities


16-23 April 2016

The Uganda Leadership Challenge is a seven-day executive training
programme that provides participants with hands-on experience
of working in Uganda. It partners UK public and voluntary sector
professionals with leaders from the Ugandan health sector to create joint
teams that work together to improve service delivery at health centres in
some of the most remote and deprived regions of Western Uganda.

During the week, participants are taught how to apply traditional
leadership frameworks in Uganda’s challenging environment. Theory is put
into practice during visits to the health centres where teams are immersed
in community life. Back in the training room, leadership skills are further
tested as participants work together to plan for producing results.

After the seven days, the participants will continue to support their
Ugandan peers remotely for six months.


Day 1,2 &3
Port Fortal Training Centre – Participants travel to Western Uganda and meet their Ugandan counterparts. CSLE introduces theoretical leadership tools.

Day 4 & 5
Field visits to Health Centres – Teams deliver leadership training modules and develop health centre improvement plans. International participants gain an in-depth contextual understanding.

Day 6 & 7 Planning for the Future – Project teams share ideas, mentor district leaders and work on post-programme planning. International participants
return to Kampala.

Fee: £2,500 per participant.

The fee includes food and accommodation whilst in Uganda, local transportation, and on-going support from Pepal during the sixmonths
following the immersion visit.

The fee excludes travel to and from Uganda.

The fee also subsidises the participation of local Ugandan participants on the programme.
