The 42 selected fellows from 10 African countries represent Africa’s leading changemakers who have demonstrated outstanding dedication to transforming their communities and shaping Africa’s future.
GE’DA’ fellows were chosen through a rigorous competitive process and criteria based on their commitment towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goals in Africa, outstanding leadership promise, and community service.
According to Chidi Koldsweat, the Executive Director, GE` DA’ is a Benin word for “Together Build”. It is a 3-months intensive professional leadership development program for third sector leaders working to improve their communities.
Through this program, they will receive intensive sessions from an expert faculty with competencies on the Sustainable Development Goals, pitch their projects, and access funding.
It is a call to stakeholders from the government, private sector, small businesses, philanthropy organizations, and international agencies to achieve the SDGs by investing in changemakers. The fellowship program is designed for those who want to understand how to play in the development sector and dive deep into building a sustainable social impact organization.
