Selfless Africa Young Leaders In Education Award 2022 (win up to 500,000)

We were founded in 2009 by a group of young and idealistic students and professionals; our vision is to bring about positive change in the society, one selfless act at a time.

Our mission is to impact communities in the mother land and here in the US, in areas of education, healthcare and youth and community empowerment. 

We hope to encourage young leaders within their communities to pass forward selfless acts and projects in these fields, to inspire selflessness in the recipients and the community at large, creating a domino effect that will ultimately transform our societies for the better.

The Young Leaders in Education Award is a Selfless 4 Africa’s project which seeks to give grants to young people (university students and corp members) in Nigeria to embark on projects that show exemplary leadership and address a prevalent problem in the community.
