African Leadership Academy (ALA) celebrated its 10th birthday in 2018! This year marked the first decade of a century-long project: the development of an enduring, pan-African institution that will enable lasting peace and shared prosperity by identifying, developing and connecting Africa’s next generation of ethical leaders.
ALA is no longer an audacious idea: it is a thriving institution with a passionate and diverse network of young leaders committed to this vision. ALA’s graduates have gone ahead to attend leading universities across the world, acquiring deep expertise, global perspectives, and powerful networks.
ALA’s Decennial was an opportunity to celebrate the growth and successes of the Academy and its graduates, reflect on the lessons learned, and look forward and invest in ALA and Africa’s future.
