We believe that stellar individuals leading exemplary organizations are best placed to devise contextual and sustainable solutions to local challenges. When we analyzed the revenue growth of our 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. 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 community, connections, and capacity. Fellows receive mentorship, exposure, and the support of a community of like-minded changemakers. Meet the Fellows here
