PfAL Connect

PfAL Connect

PfAL has been an inspiring forum to challenge myself and other enthusiastic young Africans to learn from each other.

PfAL Connect is a special initiative from the Programme for African Leadership. It fosters connections, amplifys opportunities, and increases support between the PfAL alumni network with the current PFAL cohort.

The vision for PfAL Connect is one of unity; together we will create support mechanisms through encouragement from those who have already learned from their experiences. Through mentorship, training, and resource provision, PfAL Connect aims to be a springboard that gives PfAL students a head start on their journey beyond LSE.
