In April 2016, the Sisters Leadership Development Initiative (SLDI) program completed its Phase III (2013-15) evaluation and presented an evaluation report at the annual ASEC Advisory Board meeting. After nearly ten years in existence, the program has achieved many successes, including the over $10 million secured by SLDI alumnae and their mentees for urgently needed projects focused on education, infrastructure, healthcare, income generation and economic empowerment, social welfare, and much more. Sisters are truly taking up leadership roles after participation in SLDI and African communities are benefitting from the skills, innovation and dedication SLDI alumnae bring to their work. The SLDI program also continues to address challenges as they are identified and, much like the sisters we serve, continually seeks new ways to more fully achieve our goals. We invite you to take a closer look at our Phase III evaluation outcomes and learn about the different ways SLDI is positively impacting individual sisters, congregations, program stakeholders, and the lives of Africans in SLDI's countries of operations.
