The ALT Foundation’s vision is an Africa that works for everyone. We view leadership as the key to an Africa that works for everyone; and because there’s wide acknowledgement that current leadership has failed, we also see the need to transform African leadership.
We are quick to admit that leadership is not a silver bullet to the problems facing Africa. Development challenges are complex, and are typically caused by many factors and layers that are embedded deeply in the way society functions. However, for Africa, despite the existance of other development enablers, leadership has faired dismally.
Tweaking leadership here and there won’t do. An overhaul can help, but what is really needed is transformation of African leadership.
