Lead(H)er stands for “she is a leader” and the Fellowship was conceptualized with the aim of supporting young women in Africa by nurturing their skills, expertise and aspirations in the fields of Politics, Economics/Business and Peace and Security. The aim of the Fellowship is to provide a safe space for Young Women who haven’t been exposed much to regional and international opportunities, while amplifying their impact at local and grassroots levels.
The first cohort is open for young women not older than 25 years old and national/resident of the following countries: Tanzania, Kenya, Uganda, Rwanda, Ethiopia, South Sudan, Malawi, Namibia, South Africa, Lesotho, Zambia and Zimbabwe.
Please note that you should be a national of the eligible countries in Eastern and Southern Africa, and be not older than 25 years old.
If you are a national of another country, please feel free to submit your expression of interest to be engaged in other activities and to be considered for the next Cohort of the Lead(H)er Fellowship.
The deadline to apply for the Lead(H)er Fellowship is February 9th, 2021.
