NASSER LEADERSHIP FELLOWSHIP 2019 FOR YOUNG LEADERS FROM AFRICAN UNION MEMBER STATES

Nasser Fellowship is the first (African-African) fellowship to target young African executive leaders with diverse operational disciplines within their communities, as well as one of the critical mechanisms of empowerment of the African transformational leadership endorsed by the African Union’s Agenda (in text) in order to stimulate and promote African values through self-reliance, solidarity, hard work, collective prosperity, building on the African successes, experiences and best practices for the formulation of the African model of transformation and development. The Fellowship is also one of the mechanisms of "harnessing the demographic dividend through investment in youth" in conjunction with the assumption by Egypt of the presidency of the African Union in 2019.
The Fellowship was named after the late leader Gamal Abdel Nasser as he is one of the most important leaders of the African continent and one of the most unique leading models. He was nicknamed “Father of Africa”, Nasser is a pure African model, and a political and historical example of transformational leadership. As a leader, he sought to support the African liberation movements and the Third World until they gained independence. He also strongly contributed to the establishment of the Organization of African Unity (OAU), the first organization to create a clear form of African integration, later known as the African Union.
The African Union’s Agenda, in the 1st item entitled “Voices of the African Peoples”, expressed great appreciation to the Founding Fathers of the Organization of African Unity (OAU) for the successful culmination of liberation movements that eradicated slavery, colonialism and apartheid.
