YELP Class of 2018 graduated on 26th January 2019. The fellows have been a part of the Young and Emerging Leaders Project for the past year and upon completion of their third and final seminar, graduated officially as fellows of the LéO Africa Institute. We are especially excited to announce the 2018 YELP valedictorian, Wanjuhi Njoroge, from Kenya. Upon being selected as the YELP valedictorian, Wanjuhi received the Magnus Mchunguzi certificate for being the most outstanding fellow of the 2018 cohort.
