About Us



Development in Africa has been slowed down because of a failure in our leadership system. The problem of Africa is not just poverty or starvation; it is leadership. There is a crisis among the people and society as a whole. There is a crisis of leadership at every level in our world; from business, government, non-profits to churches.

  • - The outward behavior and the inward character of today’s leader is rapidly diverging.
  • - The pace of technology, change, and the lack of margin is testing every leader.

The need of the hour is great LEADERSHIP. Great leaders build great organization. The need of the hour is men and women who understand what it means to be a LEADER. We need leadership that can TRANSFORM the lives of those we lead, hence bringing transformation to Africa and our world.


African Leadership Development Center (Afrilead) has the sole purpose of equipping leaders to change our world.
