About Us

Africa Leadership Institute (AFLI) was conceptualized in 2003 as an independent, non-partisan and public policy pan-African think tank, with the broad aim of promoting excellence in leadership, peace and security; good governance and sustainable development in the continent. Headquartered in Kampala, Uganda, AFLI was incorporated on 26th April, 2004 as a Company Limited by Guarantee without shares, but changed status four years later to become a not-for-profit and voluntary service non-governmental organisation (NGO).

Over the years, we have devoted significant efforts to addressing the gap in policy research and evidence-based advocacy required to influence policy and facilitate appropriate program interventions. The Institute’s solemn goal is to improve human well-being using initiatives aimed at accelerating socio-economic development among rural and cross-border communities.
