The LéO Africa Institute and the Konrad Adenauer Stiftung (KAS) on Friday, 27th May, announced a new cohort of 15 emerging civic and public sector champions joining the Huduma Fellowship for training on thought leadership, public affairs management, and policy making.
The yearlong program trains a new generation of public sector leaders to understand the significance of service in building a “good society” and is designed along LéO Africa Institute’s guiding principles of; Clarity (about the leadership challenge in Africa today), Empathy (towards Humanity & environment), Knowledge (widening our understanding of the state of Africa and the world today) and Volunteerism/Servant leadership (developing a spirit of selfless service to the community).
The Huduma Fellowship offers fellows an opportunity to exercise “servant” leadership in the public sector and further helps them understand how future public sector leaders can contribute to improving the quality-of-service delivery.
The fellowship also builds a new cadre-ship of politically conscious actors in the public space in Uganda and offers intense mentorship opportunities tailor-made for each fellow’s career track.
“We envision building a strong community of individuals at the center of managing affairs of society, and influencing how society is managed. We envision Huduma fellows to be leading in presenting examples of what values-based leadership looks like and why it is important for those who aspire to do work of service,” said LéO Africa Institute Founder & Senior Director Awel Uwihanganye.
