Our Purpose Projects

We are all made to be a part of something bigger than ourselves; but it can often be challenging to find a way to use your talents, your passions, and your resources to better the world around you. With African Leadership’s Purpose Projects, you can design your own opportunities to use your voice and leverage your skills to maximize your impact in Africa.

Your purpose project connects you and your community directly into an international network across Africa to help local leaders spark tangible change within their communities. There are no capes required to do this work. Instead, it’s a network of over 80,000 ordinary people around the world leveraging who they are, giving what they have, using what they know, and learning what they don’t to leave an impact we know will last.

Here are some of the extraordinary projects that people like you have started that are directly impacting the lives of Africans. If you have an idea for your own purpose project, we’d love to hear from you!
