Let Integrity Lead

Africa Leadership Initiative (ALI) East Africa Foundation works to identify, strengthen, and motivate East Africa ALI fellows, who are of the Aspen Global Leadership Network (AGLN). Members of the AGLN graduate as fellows having participated in a values-based leadership program modeled on the Henry Crown Fellowship program and are all committed to addressing the foremost challenges of their communities and times.

As the Africa Leadership Initiative, it is our clear-cut objective to develop the next generation of value-based African leaders. These leaders will not only impart knowledge and share opinions but also guide and lead their countries with integrity.

Since our inception, ALI has served as a Pan-African initiative with a strong view that Africa’s future lies in the investment and development of effective, values-based, and enlightened African leaders.

Our mission has not been an easy one, but through our program, we have been able to empower a number of leaders who are now shaping the continent in a positive light.

Fellows join the program having demonstrated a great deal of personal success and leave it inspired to make a greater mark on their communities and the world.

Through regular seminars and gatherings, the Network connects fellows and provides a platform where they can learn from, collaborate with, and support one another.

During the seminars, each Fellow identifies and begins a personal leadership project reflecting his/her passions with support from Fellows and Mentors who share those interests. These projects mark the beginning of each Fellow’s commitment to action and their impact on their communities and the East African region in general. This action and impact are the defining characteristics of an ALI-EA Fellow.

The ASPEN Fellowship Program

The Aspen Global Leadership Network is a worldwide community of more than 3,000 high-integrity, entrepreneurial leaders from business, government and the nonprofit sector in more than 50 countries.


Leadership Events


Each summer, the Resnick Aspen Action Forum (RAAF) offers the opportunity to come together with high-integrity, action-oriented leaders to reflect, refresh, and recommit to confronting some of society's greatest challenges.

The regional organizations – ALI-EA, ALI-SA, and ALI-WA – are increasingly articulating the need for a wide-ranging Pan-African perspective on common issues facing the continent, coalescing around a biannual gathering, the Africa Impact Forum (AIF).

The ALI-EA Fellowship program provides a unique blend of seminars, designed to broaden the perspectives of the participants, and develop value-based, community-spirited leaders.
