The Management of the Ugwumba Center for Leadership Development in Africa led by Ugwumba Uche Nwosu is glad to announce its new partnership with LEAP Africa.
This is giant leap in the right direction as LEAP Africa is also a youth-focused leadership development nonprofit organization with a mission to inspire, empower and equip a new cadre of leaders with skills and tools for personal, organization and community transformation.
LEAP Africa’s interventions for youths are designed to bridge the gaps in effective leadership, education, employability, entrepreneurship and to awaken civic participation in citizens to demand good governance or creatively address social issues.
As an impact investment and leadership center with a mandate to raise a new generation of young leaders and entrepreneurs for Africa, we saw a need for this collaboration to further advance our objectives.
This year, LEAP Africa is in partnership with us to scale up the impact of the Ugwumba Enterprise Challenge, which is our idea pitching and grant competition for young entrepreneurs in Nigeria.
Having pioneered a number of highly successful youth development projects across the continent, such as the Social Innovators Program and Awards, we are sure that the support of LEAP Africa shall speak volumes for the 2020 Ugwumba Enterprise Challenge, which kicked off with a 7 days Boot Camp on November 02, 2020 with over 400 active participants from across the country.
We appreciate the leadership of LEAP Africa for endorsing and supporting this idea pitching and grant competition.
