Who We Are
The African Leadership Foundation is a non profit organization that seeks to create transformational change in Africa by developing and connecting the next generation of African leaders. We carry out this mission by supporting the African Leadership Academy (ALA) in Johannesburg, South Africa.
ALA attracts outstanding 16-19 year olds from all over Africa and cultivates their leadership and entrepreneurial skills with the goal of empowering them to initiate positive change in their communities. Since the Academy's first graduating class in 2010, ALA graduates have gained admission to the finest US and UK universities, have earned $21 million in financial support, and have continued to built non-profit organizations, launched profitable business ventures, explored cutting edge ideas in science and technology, and developed scalable innovations to address social, economic, and health challenges. You can listen to their stories here.
Please consider how your fundraising can support ALA. Invest in positive change in Africa.
