Africa Leadership Initiative South Africa


Since its inception, the African Leadership Institute has served as a Pan-African initiative with a strong view that Africa’s future lies in the investment and development of effective, values-based and enlightened African leaders. ALI's objective is to develop the next generation of values-based African leaders. These leaders will not only impart knowledge and share opinions, but also guide and lead their countries with integrity. It says its programme mission is to empower a number of leaders who are now shaping the continent in a positive light. ALI forms part of the Aspen Global Leadership Network (AGLN), which was established worldwide in collaboration with the Aspen Institute, and consists of other leadership initiatives similar to ALI. ALI is represented in three regions: ALI West Africa, ALI East Africa and ALI South Africa.
