The African Leadership Institute, formed in 2006, promotes effective leadership in Africa by nurturing and unleashing the leadership potential of young Africans. Since then, AFLI has built a powerful network of close to 400 leaders in 50 countries. The African Leadership Institute focuses on building strategic leadership across the continent by developing exceptional leaders representing all spheres of society. It does so primarily through the Institute's flagship programme, the prestigious Archbishop Tutu Leadership Fellowship . Alumni of the African Leadership Institute form a dynamic network of Fellows passionately committed to the continent's transformation, bridging the divide between nations and ensuring that Africa is set centre-stage in global affairs.
