AFLI obtains Legacy status from Tutu Foundation


The African Leadership Institute has had Archbishop Tutu as the patron of it's flagship Leadership Programme for years.  During that time, the Archbishop has lent his voice and his support to the work that AFLI has done in turning out servant leaders. Earlier this year, that arrangement was cemented when AFLI and the Archbishop Tutu Leadership Programme were selected as projects that must uphold the legacy of Archbishop Tutu. 

To that end, on June 28, 2017, the Desmond and Leah Tutu Legacy Foundation and AFLI signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) which bestows legacy status on AFLI and the Archbishop Tutu Leadership Programme as legacy projects.  The MoU formally recognizes the important role of the Institute and the Fellows in perpetuating the legacy of the Archbishop and upholding the values he cherishes most – integrity, morality, ubuntu, servant leadership. 

His message to each cohort of Tutu Fellows, since 2006, has been consistent:  “I want you to stand up against the evils that may pervade your society, be they corruption, greed, discrimination, intolerance, abuse or whatever. But I also want you to be the positive creators of opportunities for others to share the benefits of success and endeavour. Empowering and enabling others to succeed is as important and as rewarding as fighting inequalities. Caring, humility, vision and passion are hallmarks of great leaders. I look to you to be the generation that drives the transformation of Africa and I, particularly, look to the Archbishop Tutu Fellows to be at the forefront of change. You are blessed with the talents of leadership but with these, come enormous responsibilities.  I hope you are prepared to take up the challenge.”
