Africa Illuminated

The historic role of Africa in human history and the contributions of Afro-descendants to civilization are rarely included in the powerful narratives that shape our sense of self. Africa Illuminated uses intellectual rigor to bring the the African diaspora together around the ties that bind. The goal is to illuminate new narratives, based on real history, and create an opportunity to celebrate the power and brilliance of the legacy of Afro-descendants.

Transformational Leadership Program

Founded in 2007, the Transformational Leadership Program (TLP), represents our longest running initiative. TLP provides leadership development opportunities for African nationals working in areas of service delivery. Originally piloted and supported by the Coca-Cola Africa Foundation (TCCAF), we now fully sponsor TLP with the support of AAI donors. In 2016, we enhanced TLP’s impact with e-learning and blended-learning models that increased access for African NGO leaders and social entrepreneurs.
