ABOUT US

Courageous Leaders was created for c-suite and emerging leaders to find the courageous leader in themselves.

  • The programme was curated and delivered by leaders and world-class executive coaches.
  • 128 delegates from companies such as Disney, Clearwater, Ascential plc, Transferwise, Cannes Lions Informa plc, Osborne Clarke and Softbank attended the 2019 event.
  • We raised £10,270 which helped leverage a further £102,700 of funding from the UK government, to help fund an education project in Zimbabwe for marginalised girls
  • We are a not-for-profit run by volunteers.

SUPPORTING EDUCATION IN ZIMBABWE

Our objective is to help support 21,780
girls in Zimbabwe and empower them
through access to education.

WE AIM TO GIVE THEM:

  • Access to quality learning opportunities, in or out of school.
  • Access to vocational training in relevant skills to build new livelihoods.
  • Access to safe, fairly-paid living through work or their own small business.
  • Empower them to lift themselves out of a life of poverty to a future of opportunity.
