The International Council is the highest authority which acts as a representative forum for the country offices. The country offices are represented at the council by their respective Board Chairs. Other council members are appointed from strategic key sectors externally. The International Council meets quarterly to make joint policy decisions and ensure effective coordination among country offices.

The country office oversight boards of trustees exist to provide oversight and effective coordination of Winlde programmes at the country level for the purposes of ensuring accountability, efficiency and compliance.
