Organisation Focus Programmes:
The flagship fellowship programme aspires to develop young Namibians who have the desire and potential to bring about significant change in the communities. Individuals aged 18-25 will start initiatives or scale up existing ones, incorporating teaching of soft skills and personal experiences into their entrepreneurial and leadership development.
APLI’s foundation provides training tailored to high school Learners’ Representative Council members (LRC) and Junior Town Councillors by identifiying leaders early and groom them effectively for the ideal Africa. Our strategy includes public speaking, small group facilitation, global citizenship, digital marketing and access to dialogue with critical individuals and internships.
Scholar’s Programme for Boys
The main goal of the Scholar’s Programme for Boys is to provide life trajectory-changing opportunities to very talented and ambitious young boys who come from disadvantaged backgrounds.
We aspire to inspire a changed mindset amongst men in our country, by aligning wellness, emotional intelligence and critical thinking with their secondary schooling.
