About Us

The African Leadership Institute was founded to equip and develop leaders to transform Africa. We believe that Africa should solve its own challenges (like corruption, crime, poverty, HIV/Aids, unemployment, lack of specialized skills, inferiority, passivity, economic freedom, etc.) We believe Namibia can set an example for Africa and Africa become the hope for the rest of the world.


The African Leadership Institute (ALI) inspires and enables Africans to lead transformation, to equip leaders with the power to raise productivity and the power to transform communities. We at ALI understand the principles towards prosperity, the legacy our president has committed himself to.

Based on our understanding of leadership and more than 20 years of experience in training, we offer educational programs that are unique and specifically designed to meet the needs within the Southern African context. We offer value-based leadership development programs to emerging and established leaders from the business sector, church and public sector.

African Leadership Institute is accredited with the Namibia Qualifications Authority (NQA) and registered with the Namibia Council for Higher Education (NCHE) and Namibia Training Authority (NTA). Our NQA accredited academic programs include a Certificate in Transformational Leadership (Level 5) and a Diploma in Transformational Leadership (Level 6). Our non-academic programs include various seminars, Teambuilding Training and Leadership Training for Namibian youth. Our basic philosophy is a holistic approach to leadership development (focusing on both human and social capital) that inspires and enables individuals to lead transformation in themselves, their families, teams, organizations and communities.
