African Visionary Fellowship

We believe that stellar individuals leading exemplary organizations are best placed to devise contextual and sustainable solutions to local challenges. They are not, however, the focus of many donors’ funding. We created the African Visionary Fellowship to disrupt this paradigm. Learn more from the HuffPost article “The African Visionary Fellowship: Why We Built It & Why You Should Support It.”

Begun in 2017, our African Visionary Fellowship offers capacity building designed for and by local visionaries. Fellows receive mentorship, exposure, and the support of a community of like-minded changemakers. Meet the inaugural class of visionaries here. The second cohort of African visionaries began in the spring of 2018. Meet the 2018 Fellows here
