WLA in Africa

WLA in Africa with group of children

Women Leaders in Action (WLA) is a women’s resource group whose mission is to connect high performing women through professional and personal resources to provide support to community-based programs. Through shared experiences and global networks, WLA manages programs to inspire women to excel in their personal and professional lives.


The mission of our charity, WLAKids, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, is to provide basic services and educational support to orphans and other vulnerable children in Africa. With the support of our generous donors, we work to make a significant difference in children’s’ lives, enabling a brighter, hope-filled future. In the last three years, WLA has been able to touch the lives of thousands of children in Kenya and Swaziland by providing school fees, uniforms, desks, textbooks and other critical school supplies and investing in building schools in Swaziland and intensive teacher training programs in Kenya.
