PlatformIconOnlyVioletThe Ford Foundation awarded the African Leadership Institute a three-year grant that was titled: Harnessing the Collective Influence of Africa‚Äôs Young Leaders through Building a Regional Networking Platform and Community of Practice.  AFLI's role is to manage and provide direction to the project, which has three key objectives in relation to the landscape of young African leaders:

  • To map the landscape of African leadership initiatives across the continent, of which findings will be captured in a report.  A fully searchable directory of the data obtained in the research mapping the landscape of leadership initiatives has been compiled and is at DIRECTORY.
  • To create spaces and opportunities where young people can identify synergies and engage, resulting in the conceptualisation and execution of collective agendas and activities that drive the African developmental agenda forward. These efforts will be directed by an Advisory Board consisting of young African leaders and chaired by a young African leader.
  • To build a Community of Practice consisting of the curators of various African youth initiatives where collaboration can be explored, and experiences and best practices are documented and shared so that learning across and between programmes is enhanced with those learnings. This in turn can inform programme design for enhanced effectiveness and strengthen the response and interventions with respect to youth leadership initiatives on the continent.
