On 16 October 2009 the fifth Harambee Leadership Programme got under way in Ethiopia. The Programme brought together 18 participants from 7 countries to explore ethical leadership in the 21st Century Africa.
The Harambee Programme - operating across Africa since 2003 - is about young people discovering their inner potential and mobilizing their collective energy to make a conscious and positive difference in the world. In other words, to learn about change - personal and social.
To this end, the Programme provides an opportunity for the next generation of Africa’s young leaders to begin applying a truth of leadership - that anyone can be a leader if they work to know themselves, listen with care to their fellow human beings and grasp the courage to face the demands of situations that need to change.
Who we are: Initiatives of Change (IofC) is a world-wide movement of people of diverse cultures and backgrounds, who are committed to the transformation of society through changes in human motives and behaviour, starting with their own.
Purpose: We work to inspire, equip and connect people to address world needs, starting with themselves, in the areas of trustbuilding, ethical leadership and sustainable living.
