The Africa Leadership Initiative (ALI) was conceived in 2003 as a Pan-African initiative and born out of a belief that Africa’s future lies in investment in the development of effective, values-based and enlightened African leaders. The purpose of ALI is to develop the next generation of values-based African leaders, who are capable of guiding and leading their countries as they struggle to align the demands of globalisation with local visions of “a good society”. The historical and current problems faced by the African continent are well known. ALI aims, in a significant way, to reverse this negative trend.
ALI has programmes in East Africa (Kenya, Tanzania, Rwanda and Uganda); West Africa (Ghana and Nigeria) and South Africa. All of these programmes have been delivered in partnership with the Aspen Institute in Colorado. ALI currently has 300 fellows in Africa: 180 in South Africa; 60 in East Africa and 60 in West Africa.
