  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 donations down sharply from previous years, WILMA retires most of its outstanding debt and provides sustaining assistance at low levels for benefit of its continuing business and public-service activities in Tanzania.
WILMA, working with local experts, continues to produce illustrative plans for JVCEs and CECs (Community Enterprise Corporations, part of the WILMA Business Ecosystem).
Encouraged by the Sekem Development Foundation, WILMA formulates a two-week immersion course for students who want to become leaders of community-based Social Enterprise and Entrepreneurship for Development (SEED). A Powerpoint show on SEED is used to test student interest in a number of schools. WILMA produces a study program for the students and for its own use, compiling a bibliography of seminal books and articles. Many copies are shipped to Africa for use there.
WILMA becomes a client of the NYU/Wagner School Capstone Program and engages a group of its graduate students to appraise WILMA's business model along with a counterpart group of students from the Institute for Development Studies of the University of Dar es Salaam (UDSM).
