For the past two years I have been privileged to be supporting a growing network of leaders transforming African Leadership. I have seen the network grow from a small influential group of leaders in Rwanda, to one that is now flourishing in Burundi, Uganda, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

Kurumbuka Leadership Solutions, birthed out of the excellent work of the Wellspring Foundation for Education, uses a Christ-centred approach to develop, connect and equip emerging and executive leaders who have the passion and vision to transform their institutions, organizations, and communities across Africa. Kurumbuka’s goal is to invest in and transform ten thousand African leaders by 2030. Yes, that is an ambitious goal. But with the active participation and support of people across Canada, the U.S.A. and the continent of Africa we believe that we can achieve the goal.

I have repurposed Leadership is Heart to honour and support Kurumbua’s vision as my leadership has also been transformed by the inspiring and influential leaders I have been fortunate to work and serve with. I have been so inspired that I wanted others to hear about how Kurumbuka is developing and empowering African leaders.

Kurumbuka’s Vision and Mission.

To accomplish Kurumbuka’s goal we need your help. We currently have twenty-five leaders in our fifth cohort journeying through our leadership development program. Each one of them are engaged in a year long commitment to transform their leadership and the communities they serve.

This is how you can help.

Leaders attending our leadership development program are eligible to receive up to THREE thousand dollars in scholarships. This is equivalent to 75% of the cost of the year long course. Each one of those leaders would appreciate being supported in their quest for transformation. If you’ve experienced the impactful gift of a scholarship in your life, consider paying it forward today and help these inspiring leaders. You can (virtually) “meet” all the cohort 5 participants by reading their stories at kurumbuka.kindful.com/ali.

I am sure you will be inspired and consider contributing some or all of a scholarship. Here is Gilbert’s story.
