Segal Family Foundation African Visionary Fellowship United States


The foundation believes that stellar individuals leading exemplary organizations are best placed to devise contextual and sustainable solutions to local challenges. When the foundation analyzed the revenue growth of its partners, however, we saw that organizations founded and led by expatriates grew twice as fast as those led by Africans. Local leaders at the forefront of development are not the focus of many donors’ funding. So the foundation created the African Visionary Fellowship to disrupt this paradigm.
