The Leadership Essay Competition is organised annually by UONGOZI Institute to provide a space for the youth of Africa and the next generation of leaders in the region to contribute to important discussions on leadership and sustainable development. Since 2013, seven Competitions have been organised.
This blog will serve as an informal platform for the UONGOZI Institute (UI) to provide useful information, as well as encourage an exchange of ideas, for those across the continent, and beyond, who are interested in issues of leadership and sustainable development in Africa.
Posts will cover a variety of topics surrounding those two themes, including useful information from UI’s research findings and television shows, and provide insights on capacity building through tips and tricks from UI’s training courses. There will also be periodic posts to announce UI events and relevant scholarships, fellowships advertised outside of UI, or other programs that could prove to be useful for the emerging generation of African leaders. Lastly, reviews of books on topics of interest from the UI Resource Center will be posted by UI staff to help provide recommendations for those interested in diving deeper into the material presented here. We also welcome guest posts from practitioners in fields related to any of the above mentioned topics. If you are interested in contributing as a guest blogger, please email [email protected]
with “Guest Blog Post” as the subject line.
