LéO At 5

The New Year has started off in a very special way for the Institute! On January 25 we celebrated 5 years of nurturing a new generation of young leaders that are impacting change in Africa. The Institute was honored to celebrate this milestone with people that have been part of our journey from the very beginning: our board of directors, faculty, YELP fellows and our growing network of associates. 
Our special thanks go to Mrs. Molly Kamukama, the Principal Private Secretary to H.E. Kaguta Museveni for honoring our invitation and delivering a keynote address at this year’s Annual Gala Dinner.

The YELP Class of 2018 Valedictorian is Wanjuhi Njoroge, who is, among many things, an environmental activist and emerging thought leader in Kenya. You can read her powerful valedictorian speech here.
