We L.E.A.D. for Change

Leadership Education And Development

Our Mission: Creating Possibilities for Tomorrow’s Leaders

Our legacy project includes developing a youth leadership curriculum and sponsoring the building of a school.

In 2021, we will launch our We L.E.A.D. global youth leadership curriculum program for early childhood through teens and we will sponsor the building of a school for children 3-6 years of age in a village in Uganda.

Creating Possibilities

We L.E.A.D. for Change is a team of collaborative leaders from around the world, including Canada, the United States, the Caribbean, and Europe. We are a diverse group of entrepreneurs, employees, parents, and friends who have come together through a desire to grow and stretch our personal leadership by creating possibilities for tomorrow’s leaders.

The We L.E.A.D. Curriculum

The We L.E.A.D. Curriculum will support the IREAD village, and will be available for any community that serves young people around the globe. Currently in development by educators and professionals, this curriculum will consist of interactive modules to serve students, teachers, and parents and will be available online, free of charge. It will build a strong sense of identity and a passion for learning in young people and how to be their best and contribute to our shared humanity in a profound way. It will focus on leadership principles, the power of kindness, generosity, communication, courage, using their voices, building dreams, and so much more.

Our goal is to begin with the youngest children, then continue to grow the curriculum through the high school level, creating a culture of love, authenticity, empowerment, joy, and connection.

The We L.E.A.D. curriculum will be offered to IREAD students in all current and future schools, as well as other educational establishments around the globe.

Empowering tomorrow’s leaders, today.

The School

We are collaborating with an amazing foundation, IREAD (IREAD.org), which invests in and addresses early childhood education to reduce poverty and cultivate personal growth. To date, IREAD has built and maintains 21 schools in Uganda and Northern Pakistan with 8 more scheduled to open in 2021. They also work with local tradespeople from the villages for each project, creating local employment opportunities. To date, IREAD has impacted over 7,000 children and their families.

For more than a decade, Institute for Rural Education And Development (IREAD) has been unlocking the potential of Ugandan children aged 3 to 6. IREAD builds early childhood development centres (ECD Centres) and delivers early childhood education through a model that engages and draws on the strengths of the villagers. By the end of 2021, IREAD will have 16 ECD centres throughout Uganda.

With your generous donation to IREAD, we’ll be able to build the We L.E.A.D. for Change ECD Centre. IREAD’s 100% Promise means that every dollar you give will go to Uganda. This guarantee is made possible by the love and generosity of a Canadian private family foundation and the USA board of directors who cover all administrative costs associated with building the early childhood development centers.

When children lack basic reading, writing, and math skills, their futures are limited. Education creates unlimited possibilities by improving health, empowering women, and helping eliminate poverty.
