  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.

In January a WILMA team leads NYU and UDSM student groups on a two-week study tour in Tanzania, where meetings and interviews with academic, governmental, and other private experts are used by the students to gather information for their reports appraising WILMA and its methods.
Based on findings from the study tour and other research, WILMA produces a comprehensive framework paper outlining reforms in education and how they relate to private, community-based development through social entrepreneurship, The Entrepreneurial Leadership of Development.
A follow-up paper sets out ideas for achieving "The Entrepreneurial Leadership of Development" with a focus on African university research to educate "Community Social Entrepreneurs" who have completed secondary school and intend careers in this field: Helping Community Social Entrepreneurs: Ideas in Search of a Program. A trip to Tanzania appraises the interest of selected private secondary schools in these ideas.
With the transfer of TTT Inc. to a new owner, WILMA's plans are renewed for using TTT's network of Industrial Sector Partners to find early investors in enterprises located on JVCEs and CECs. Meanwhile, WILMA enters into an agreement with a Tanzanian company, Empowerment Enterprises of Africa, to create the first Social Enterprise Incubation Center in Tanzania.
