Our three-year leadership nurturing program begins with a three-day leadership foundation conference. The conference focuses on three key areas of ELP:
(1) Exposing future African leaders to the state of the continent.
(2) Challenging them to do something to improve the situation of Africa.
(3) Immersing them in the virtues and skill-sets that future African Leaders need to facilitate development and end poverty in Africa.
At the end of this conference, emerging leaders are expected to come up with the following before the mid-year summit
One Personal Development Goal (PDG) bordering on any of the virtues that the Centre wishes to inculcate into the future leaders.
One Community Development Project (CDP) to tackle a specific problem in Africa.
One Big Dream (BD): What the emerging leader wants to be in future
