Good leadership will set a clear vision and influence a group of people to understand and accept it. And it will inspire great performance from the subjects and productivity to achieve the vision. The YELP fellowship is important because it is selecting socially conscious leaders that want to improve society and nurturing them as the next generation of leaders with the right skills needed to be effective leaders.
YELP, to me, is a space that invests in the world’s greatest resource, which is human potential. Being a part of this fellowship has exposed me to a vibrant community of young change makers who are committed to making a contribution towards the development and general wellbeing of people across East Africa and beyond. The diversity and balance among Fellows makes the YELP experience even better, because I get to learn from, share with and have a team of individuals supporting me in different capacities.
