Each year the Acumen West Africa Fellows Programme brings together ~20 bold and generous leaders who are committed to tackling issues of poverty and injustice in West Africa- and equips them with the practices and community needed to deepen and sustain their impact. Fellows come from all walks of life and are creating hope in a cynical world; they are bridging our divides, connecting our communities, empowering our youth, standing with our vulnerable, protecting our environment, serving us all.
The Acumen Fellows program in West Africa is for individuals who are leading an initiative in any of these five countries: Ghana, Liberia, Nigeria, Sierra Leone, and The Gambia.
The Fellows Programme is centred around:
Self-reflection: Fellows have space to broaden their perspectives and identify areas of personal development
Cohort based learning: Fellows have space to practice new modes of leadership with a diverse group of builders from across sectors and
Real-world application: Fellows take away learning that can be immediately applied to their social change work to generate lasting impact
Acumen covers all fellowship-related expenses during the fellowship year. This includes all costs associated with the seminars including lodging, food, transportation, and visas.
