One afternoon, I asked my ten-year-old brother would you like to be a politician? And he sharply replied, “No! God Forbid!” I was shocked at his response but then it dawned on me, this conversation about transforming Nigeria, transforming Africa wasn’t really headed far if the children that are supposed to lead us into the future do not believe in it or have any desire to lead it.

I continued my experiment, asking as many ten-year-old kids as I could find if they wanted to be political leaders and I constantly got the No. It was very concerning especially because I have come to realize that many African problems cannot be subtracted from the political leadership of the countries. 

The interesting thing is that they ( teenagers and children I spoke to) did not object to wanting to be a Nelson Mandela or a Barrack Obama but did not find models in the political leaders that led our home country.

We have always said children are the leaders of tomorrow but I also know that they wouldn’t automatically become leaders but they have to be taught how to be good leaders but this is something that is absent from our school curriculum at both the primary, secondary and even tertiary education level. We set out to do something about this, Frontiers Africa was birthed.

Africa needs leaders. Leaders in governance, leaders in education, leaders in healthcare, leaders in Agriculture, leaders in the Arts and Entertainment, leaders anywhere we can think of.

“When it comes to Africa, the issue of leadership is much more important in Africa than anywhere else in the world…..when institutions are weak, leadership makes all difference”- Fred Swaniker.

At Frontiers Africa, our vision is to transform Africa. We are hopeful to be a part of the process of creating a peaceful, prosperous and healthy Africa, where every African can fully actualize their potential. We are on a mission to do this by building and inspiring young Africans to be transformational leaders who would-be drivers of development. 

We organize conversation cafes where young adults can gather in informal settings to talk about the continent and happenings on it and how they can participate in the change process. 

We also have leadership development programs for students in primary and secondary school. 

We totally understand that we cannot do this alone! Africa is a huge continent with an explosive population teeming with potential.

We are excited and inspired by the work of organizations such as Leap Africa, African Leadership Academy, and many others. We are looking forward to partnerships and collaborations.

Long time supporter, and thought I’d drop a comment.

Your organization’s wordpress site is very sleek – hope you don’t
mind me asking what theme you’re using? (and don’t mind if
I steal it? :P)

I just launched my small businesses site –also built in wordpress
like yours– but the theme slows (!) the site down quite a bit.

In case you have a minute, you can find it by searching for “royal cbd” on Google (would appreciate any feedback) – it’s still in the works.

Keep up the good work– and hope you all take care of yourself during the coronavirus scare!

I’m really impressed together with your writing skills as neatly
as with the structure on your blog. Is this a paid topic or did you modify
it yourself? Anyway stay up the excellent quality writing,
it’s rare to see a nice blog like this one these days..

P.S. If you have a minute, would love your feedback on my new
website re-design. You can find it by searching for “royal cbd” – no sweat if you can’t.

Keep up the good work!

I was curious if you ever considered changing the layout of your website?
Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
But maybe you could a little more in the
way of content so people could connect with it better.
Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two images.
Maybe you could space it out better?
