Benefits: increase capacity to lead social change and tackle problems of poverty and injustice; become part of Acumen’s global community of social innovators
Each year, the Acumen East Africa Fellows Program brings together 20 extraordinary individuals tackling poverty and injustice in their communities – and equips them with the knowledge, skills and community to accelerate and sustain their impact.
The Fellowship curriculum is centered around the principles of moral leadership:
The Fellowship begins with an intensive leadership program, where Fellows remain in their jobs while taking part in a series of multi-day virtual seminars, paired with online group and individual assignments between seminars, all connected by group practice. This is where practical skills meet moral imagination – and the program is designed to increase a Fellow’s capacity to lead social change and tackle problems of poverty and injustice.
After the first year, Fellows become part of Acumen’s global community of social innovators – committed to life-long learning, collaboration and accompaniment as they drive change.
