Learning from our Leaders

Drawing on What Works, and Learning from What Doesn’t

Akijul invests in studying and learning from African leaders who have been able to effect change in their communities; grow and develop strong institutions that are continuously addressing critical social justice and development issues; as well as demonstrate and inspire others through their example.

Through “Learning From our Leaders”, Akijul identifies African leaders from diverse fields, and through a series of interviews, observations and reflections with these leaders, their teams and/or constituencies and colleagues, we document their experiences, analyze this information and use it to identify good practices, leadership styles, and lessons that will inform the development and testing of a repertoire of contextual and catalytic interventions.
