The En-Courage Leadership Initiative

Inspiring courageous leadership in youth

The En-Courage Leadership Initiative will target 18-35 year olds (male and female) with the goal of having them understand and adopt courageous leadership, underpinned by the values of integrity and life of purpose, inspired by the life and work of Prof. Wangari Maathai and to initiate a process of rapid improvement of the leadership capacity of Kenya’s young people by nurturing a culture of purpose, integrity and courage.

The Wangari Maathai Foundation aims to do this through the Youth Café, The WMF wilderness bootcamp and the Wangari Maathai Fellowship.
