2018 Tutu Fellowship Programme Review


With the 2018 Tutu Fellowship programme having come to a close, the small group of 26 young leaders who made this year's journey of discovery, self-reflection, and growth are sharing the impact it has had on their lives.  The Tutu Leadership Programme seeks to provide the candidates selected for the programme with tools for life-long reflection and decision making as servant-leaders in their various walks of life across the continent. 

The words of some of the members of the Class of 2018 illustrates how they experienced the Tutu Leadership Programme.

“The programme has been transformative in my leadership and personal journey, as it allowed me to connect with peers from across the continent, share our visions and hopes, and truly prepared us through the modules and assignments to find within us the courage to pursue the dreams we have to create a better tomorrow. It is a challenging yet profoundly rewarding experience that I highly recommend for those who want to build their resilience and take their leadership and potential impact to the next level of depth.”
Judy Sikuza - South Africa

“A transformative leadership development program that confluences a journey of introspection and self-discovery, with world-class exposure to an incredible array of inspirational speakers and eye-opening experiential leadership activities, all alongside an excellent cadre of peers. I recommend it.”
Aminu Umar-Sadiq - Nigeria

“I have attended many executive education and leadership programmes. This one is BY FAR, BY FAR, THE BEST PROGRAM I have ever attended. The experience is simply ‘LIFE CHANGING’. THANK YOU FOR THE OPPORTUNITY!!!”
Jean-Guy Afrika - Rwanda

“It was an opportunity of a lifetime and I am very grateful. The program has, undoubtedly, deepened my passion to be the change that I want to see in my community and to use my sphere of influence to continually be part of Africa’s sustainable transformation. My time in Mont Fleur enabled me to evaluate my leadership style and qualities and equipped me with tools to refine them. The essay on leadership afforded me the opportunity to articulate my thoughts on the type of leadership I think is needed on the continent and, especially, in my country Sierra Leone. The community project revalidated my passion for female economic empowerment and women’s involvement in STEM subjects and careers in Sierra Leone.”
Hassanatu Mansary PhD - Sierra Leone
