Burundi Leadership Training Program (BLTP)

The mission of BLTP is to equip Burundian leaders in all sectors (political parties, government, parliament, media, national defense and national police) with the technical tools and techniques of communication, negotiation and participatory decision-making. The primary mission at its inception was to build a network of key leaders to manage Burundi’s reconstruction. BLTP also trains youth to be agents of change as they grow into adulthood. This is done by integrating BLTP conflict resolution curriculum into civic education courses.
BLTP aims to bring Burundian leaders together and to restore trust among them, to promote good leadership, to build a network of communication among leaders and to influence the conduct of public affairs. The ultimate goal is to institutionalize BLTP by creating a training institute in leadership in collaboration with the Burundi’s Ministry of Education.
