The President of the Arab Republic of Egypt, who also doubles as the current Chairperson of the African Union, His Excellency President AbdelFattah El Sisi has hosted six Ugandan youth in Cairo, Egypt to mentor them about leadership at a continental level with a prime objective of obtaining the African Agenda 2063.
The African Agenda of 2063 seeks to foster prosperity and peace while being mindful of our responsibility towards reserving the planet while building and empowering people through partnerships.
The selected six have been identified as Jonah Kirabo, a journalist with Nile Post, Sarah Owembabazi, Joseph Rugasira, Derrick Wagambula, Winniefred Nafula and Emmanuel Kasambula
These are part of the 100 youth that were selected from 40 African Countries and will be mentored in areas of leadership, management, sustainable development, emotion intelligence among other skills for a period of over six weeks in the Egyptian capital, Cairo.
Participants were selected on merit and personal achievements from the circles of culture, scientific skills, sports, academia, voluntary work and leadership.
Dubbed the African Presidential Leadership Program (APLP), the mentorship program aims at bringing together African youth with different affiliations and beliefs under one umbrella aimed at development and peace, complementing Egypt’s role in effective participation with other African governments.
It was launched as part of the implementations of the 2018 World Youth Forum and it coincides with the 2019 Egyptian Presidency of the African Union.
