Programme for African Leadership


Developing the next generation of African leaders

The Programme for African Leadership stems from the shared vision of the Lalji family and LSE: to foster a new generation of African leaders who will promote best practices of economic and social development in their organisations and countries.

The programme provides support through the provision of:

  • prestigious PfAL graduate scholarships;
  • PfAL@LSE: an inspiring leadership and networking programme;
  • PfAL Hub: a collaborative online platform for our diverse network of alumni across the continent;  
  • PfAL Forum: a leadership forum for PfAL alumni held in Africa.

PfAL welcomed its first cohort to London in March 2012 and since then 130 bright emerging talents from across Africa have been accepted onto the programme and joined the PfAL Network. Since its inception, the programme has been generously supported by Firoz and Najma Lalji.
