Create a Leadership Network
Graduates of the London PfAL program automatically become members of the PfAL Network and gain access to the experience, advice, support and feedback of their peers across the continent.
The PfAL Network’s power lies in its diversity – be it in terms of skill set, professional experience, nationality or cultural background. The PfAL Network currently stands at 130 members across 23 African countries. The map below charts the reach of the PfAL program to date:

With diversity also comes challenges, especially in terms of working together effectively across a continent the size of Africa. To overcome this the PfAL Foundation developed an online communications and networking platform known as the PfAL Hub which acts as a focal point and enables easier collaboration and sharing of ideas among all members of the Network.

The Foundation also provides funding for an annual gathering of the Network and supporters in Africa – the PfAL Africa Forum. The Forum will provide a platform for discussion of issues related to Africa’s development, for networking and bonding as a group, for reviewing member achievements or projects, and to set goals and identify opportunities for the year ahead. The first Africa Forum will held from 13-16 January 2016 in Kampala, Uganda.
