About Us

The Ugwumba Center for Leadership Development in Africa is a non-political, non-discriminatory, non-profit development organization established in Nigeria in 2018 with a mandate to raise a new generation of leaders and entrepreneurs for Africa.

We envision an African continent whose democracies and economies are driven by young people and women, who are building peaceful democratic systems and successful business empires. 

Our Mission

I founded the Ugwumba Leadership Center with my team in 2018, to enable us equip youths and women from Africa with the leadership and enterprise development skills they need to become better citizens and employers of labour.

Amazing feedback...

We see our investments in the lives of young people in Africa as our own contributions to global poverty reduction and economic development policies in Africa. The success stories we hear from past Ugwumba Fellows keep us doing more because that is the only way to express our love for our people.

Board of Trustees

Our board is made up of professionals, development experts, and technocrats who share our mission and objectives of raising a new generation of young leaders and business Chief Executives for the African continent.
