The Lord Holme Memorial LEAD Bursary

In memory of the former Chairman of GlobeScan and LEAD International, the late Richard Holme, GlobeScan provides an annual grant to an individual or groups of candidates from developing nations with a commitment to sustainable development.

2013 Recipient

In 2013 we provided £7000 to cover travel expenses and tuition fees for Shamim Haider from Lahore, Pakistan, a Manager for Planning, Monitoring, Evaluation and Research with the Rural Community Development Society. His organisation works for Institutional development through social mobilization, capacity building and poverty alleviation in rural communities. In his application Shamim said that "It is my mission to create a linkage between public and private sector and make poor people aware of their rights and responsibilities. Once the people are aware of their roles and responsibilities they will be ideally positioned to take control of their development." We felt that his goals and the fact that he works in social research were in perfect alignment with the Foundation's vision.

What did the LEAD training mean to you, and what impact has it had - personally and professionally?

LEAD Training is a program aimed at identifying potential world leaders with a view to ensuring that the concept of sustainable development is inculcated in them. Thus, having passed though the training at different levels, I came to realize how important the training is to me at personal and professional levels.

Without doubt, the training has profoundly helped me in building self-confidence. It has also equipped me with the ability to visualise in a holistic manner complex problems; identify inter-linkages and eventually develop workable solutions. Another profound personal impact gained from the training is the need to ‘walk the talk’, i.e. to put my knowledge into action especially on sustainable development issues. I have also been utilizing the LEAD’s network in obtaining information from other countries on some issues that has to do with good governance and environment.   

LEAD Training has also added another dimension to my approach to work with other people. I came to realize how important it is to carry each member of my team along. And how imperative it is to identify the needs of communities before implementing a community project.

LEAD training for me therefore, is a learning experience that has helped in changing my general attitude and behaviour toward people and the environment.
