Project leadership challenges in World Vision Lesotho
Monethi, Manthethe Moipone
World Vision International (WVI) is an international non-governmental organisation (NGO) that facilitates community development initiatives worldwide. The Lesotho contingent of WVI, World Visio Lesotho (WVLSO) aims to build the capacity of and to empower communities in lesotho through development projects. leadership challenges often hamper these community development initiatives of WVLSO. Community development initiatives are usually a multi-stakeholder responsibility. This makes development projects complex. Both project implementers and beneficiaries i.e. the people, are important. Ultimately, leadership is about people, and hence the importance of leadership in the project environment. The success or failure of development projects depends on leadership. This study investigates leadership challenges that prevent World Vision Lesotho from achieving the gol of empowering the community to own and benefit from development projects in a sustained way.
