Leadership Program & Youth Development

Each dollar donated impacts two lives.

Lives impacted so far!


The LEI Match is a fundraising challenge, in support of Asante Africa’s Leadership Program & Youth Development, that will run July 4 / Sept 4 2018. Our goal is to raise $40,000  for the Leadership (LEI) Program and the upcoming 2018 LEI Summit. Whatever amount you are able to give, a group of our Community Champions will match it, dollar-for-dollar. Which means every dollar you donate will impact the lives of 2 young people. Our all-in goal of $80,000 will go towards providing job readiness, entrepreneurship skills, leadership development, and opportunities for the future to the young entrepreneurs in East Africa.

LEI Summit 2017


This fall we will host the 2018 LEI 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.”
