We’ve come a long way with the OMLA fellowship program in the last few years. More than 2,390 enthusiastic youth are being trained in sustainable leadership and given the fundamentals of social and business entrepreneurship. One hundred young Africans from farming areas were chosen from seventeen secondary schools in Ondo State, in the southwest of Nigeria, to participate in the life-changing OMLA 2023 Bootcamp.
There is a clear excitement for our initiatives. We got applications from a little more than 100 future leaders in 2022. In 2023, this number soared to an incredible 2,000+ applications, demonstrating the program’s apparent impact and the expanding interest in sustainable leadership. We expect significantly more interest and participation in the next application cycles now that we have momentum on our side.
Join us in shaping the next generation of sustainable leaders.
