Akili Dada’s fellowship program grows out of our belief that African women, especially those from poor communities, are best positioned to design solutions to the challenges facing those communities. The  goal of the program is to build the capacity of some of the continent’s most innovative young women changemakers to drive solutions to some of the biggest challenges facing African society.

These fellowships were created in direct response to the absence of African women among the ranks of those celebrated in existing social entrepreneurship incubators.
