About Us

Upcoming Events

We are a movement of Young African Leaders Initiative (YALI) alumni inspired by the transformative power of sports to achieve the African continent’s aspirations based on inclusive and sustainable growth, driven by the potential of its people, especially Youth.   We believe in the role of sports as an important enabler of sustainable development and its contributions to the economy, health, education, social inclusion, and the empowerment of women, youth, vulnerable people, individuals, and communities.

Faced with this new context, we are convinced that more innovative and sustainable sport could play a decisive role in responding to the challenges facing society today. It is time to act, and to redefine the role of sport in society to make it a force for progress and innovation.
