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.
