Professional Development for Congregational Leaders

Supporting Women Religious in Leadership

Created in Africa for Africa, Professional Development for Congregational Leaders (PDCL) aims to ‘fan to flame’ the potential of leaders of women’s religious congregations to inspire and enable women-for-mission in today’s world.

By supporting and strengthening congregational leaders, PDCL contributes to the ongoing vitality of women’s religious congregations in Africa as they minister to marginalized and impoverished communities.

This is an outreach programme under the care of the Centre for Leadership and Management (CLM), Tangaza University College, Nairobi, Kenya.
