Ten Malagasy Leaders Selected for Regional YALI Program
April 18, 2023


Congratulations to ten outstanding Malagasy leaders on their selection for the 21st cohort of the YALI Regional Leadership Center South Africa program.  This cohort will participate in both online and in-person meetings.  Participants completed a three-week online program and will travel to Midrand, South Africa to engage in three weeks of study in Civic Leadership, Public Management, or Business & Entrepreneurship.

Launched by USAID in 2015, Regional Leadership Centers (RLCs) in Ghana, Senegal, Kenya, and South Africa offer leadership training, networking, and professional development opportunities to young African leaders in sub-Saharan Africa.  RLCs are funded and managed by USAID in close partnership with the MasterCard Foundation and other private sector partners.  Upon return to Madagascar, these young leaders will join the vibrant YALI alumni family and network, and maintain connections to the RLCs through additional training, professional development programs, and access to YALI resources.
