LEAD SEA works across the southern and eastern Africa region. LEAD SEA is formed of legally independent but related national organisations.
Currently there are national organisations in Malawi and South Africa:
LEAD SEA Malawi
Focuses on national sustainable development research and outreach programmes along with capacity building. LEAD SEA Malawi also operates as the coordinating body for the region. The LEAD SEA office is based in Zomba, Malawi.
LEAD SEA South Africa
Maintains the core LEAD Fellowship training for the region.
In the coming years, LEAD SEA aims to set up further national organisations in other countries in the region.
