Our Founding Story

The organisation was inspired by Miss Universe 2019, Zozibini Tunzi when she said that we need to be teaching young girls leadership and that women must not be hesitant to take up space.

It has often been said that luck (success) is when opportunity meets preparation. Despite research showing that there are few women leaders, there are still corners of the world affording women the opportunity to lead, and they are slowly increasing every single day.

It became essential to launch capacity-building programs for adolescent girls and young womxn to prepare for these opportunities. Despite these bleak figures, there needs to be affordable organisations that prepare the next generation of young female leaders, and thus Girleada was born.

With this social impact initiative, our goal is to develop adolescent girls and young womxn for opportunities to lead. With access to the right resources, people can become empowered by their own abilities and gain the confidence to fulfil their potential.

At Girleada, we are a dedicated youth community development organisation that is empowering girls with various skills that will ensure that they are the next generation of effective leaders. We are always striving to make a difference and invite you to learn more and lend your support.

We develop girls and young womxn that are pursuing authentic leadership through capacity building programs so that they can take up space in whichever sphere of life that they are in. We want the next generation of womxn to walk bravely into leadership spaces that uphold gender equality worldwide. We will be operational in Southern Africa soon.

Achievement and Business Goal Success Concept.



​”The daily practice of letting go of who we think we’re supposed to be and embracing who we are. Choosing authenticity means cultivating the courage to be imperfect, to set boundaries, and to allow ourselves to be vulnerable.”
