WHO WE ARE
The African Leadership magazine is published by African Leadership (UK) Limited, a company registered in the United Kingdom (Company No. 07435198). The magazine focuses on bringing the best of Africa to a global audience, telling the African story from an African perspective; while evolving solutions to peculiar challenges being faced by the continent today.
Since its maiden edition in August 2008, African Leadership Magazine has grown to become a leading pan-African flagship leadership-focused publication read by over 580, 000 targeted international investors, business executives, government policy makers and multilateral agencies across Africa, the Middle East and Asia, Europe and the US. It is distributed at major international and African Leadership events around the world. It is a niche and unbiased African voice born out of a desire to ameliorate the lot of Africans by focusing on individuals and corporate bodies that are known for their legacy-based approach to leadership. We believe in building sustainable leadership in Africa through exchange of ideas in tandem with global best practices. The magazine shall continually seek to herald the dawn of a new Africa as the continent of promise and global leadership, championed by people of integrity and resilience who are rising from the challenges of an unpleasant past; thereby preserving a legacy for future generations of our people.
Our mission is to promote innovation, entrepreneurship and development in Africa, thereby heralding the emergence of a new Africa, growing beyond potential into true greatness.
The magazine ploughs back its profits into providing a future for vulnerable children of Africa through its SEND A CHILD TO SCHOOL PROGRAM, which it wholly supports in collaboration with the African Leadership Development Foundation, Inc. USA, the Betwixt and Between Foundation, USA and the Centre for Economic and Leadership Development Nigeria. The magazine actualizes its strategic development objective through the Centre for Economic and Leadership Development – its strategic development outlet and social responsibility arm, an NGO currently in special consultative status with the United Nations Economic and Social Council (UN ECOSOC). The Centre currently has 82 children under its care, and totally sponsors the secondary school education of these children currently schooling in Nigeria, Liberia, Kenya and Ghana; and Is continually adding vulnerable children from the various countries of Africa, as its resources permits. The magazine strongly believes in the statement of Professor Richard Whitfield, the founding Chairman of the United Kingdom National Family Trust, “We cannot become individuals unless we have someone who is rationally irrational and permanently committed to our welfare. We are nobody without a committed somebody. ”We are therefore committed to the education and wellbeing of the vulnerable children of Africa – using the African Leadership magazine and her strategic partners as a platform for the actualisation of these goals.
