Leadership Program & Youth Development


The Match is a fundraising challenge, in support of Asante Africa’s Leadership Program & Youth Development, that will run July 4 / Sept 14 2018. Our target is to raise $40,000  for the Leadership (LEI) Program and the upcoming 2018 East African Youth Leadership Summit.

Every dollar counts! A group of our match champions will match dollar-for-dollar, meaning every dollar you donate will impact the lives of 2 young people. Your gift plus the match contributes to the $80,000 target that will go towards preparing young people for jobs, starting businesses, ethical leadership, and creating opportunities for the future youth of East Africa.

WHAT IS THE 2018 East Africa Youth Leadership Summit?

This fall we will host the 2018 Youth Leadership Summit, bringing together 100+ young people from East Africa (Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda and Rwanda) to further develop their leadership qualities and entrepreneurial skills. They will learn about creating jobs in their home communities, enterprise development, social entrepreneurship, leadership, and job readiness, while being a positive ethical leader in their community. This year’s summit will take place Dec 9–15 at Twiga Lodge & Campsite Arusha, Tanzania.

“Even though I have a physical disability and I am a girl child, I have not given up. Today I am a strong, courageous woman entrepreneur. With the training I received, I funded my own education in the medical profession, and graduated in 2017. Now I mentor younger children to dream big, plan, and persevere.”
