  The World Institute for Leadership and Management in Africa Inc. was the inspiration of Dunstan Wai, who spent the bulk of his professional life at the World Bank where the work he did for the Bank reflected his deep knowledge of and passion for Africa. He is well known for his contribution and his commitment to capacity building in Africa, which he believed to be the most important investment that can be made in support of development.

With the decision of WILMA's program officer in Tanzania, Innocent Bash, to go to Columbia University in pursuit of a graduate degree, WILMA closes down its Tanzanian training center, WilmaFund. WilmaFund's assets are deployed to help support WILMA's past project groups in Tanzania.
WILMA's cooperation with TTT Inc. for the creation of JVCEs in Africa is put on hold as TTT's founder and president moves to the Raytheon Corp.
WILMA supports a team of volunteer medical students from Mt. Sinai Medical School in New York City who set up a mosquito-net project and an AIDS education program for villagers in northwestern Tanzania.
While WILMA's cash distributions to Africa dwindle, plans to implement The WILMA Business Ecosystem become the focus. Work in Egypt produces a joint paper with Yusuf Sadek, an entrepreneur in Assiut, titled Plans for Organic Jojoba Egypt and the WILMA Joint Venture Commercial Estate at Assiut, Egypt. A related mission to Cairo results in an agreement in principle with the firm Sekem to set up a Sekem-WILMA Development Company that would seed community-based social business in Egypt. A trip in the Gulf leads to a proposal for Creating the Qatar-America College for the Liberal Arts and the Qatar Social Enterprise Incubation Center.
