Welcome to our blog, and as we say it here in Tanzania, Karibuni.

This blog will serve as an informal platform for UONGOZI Institute to provide useful information, as well as encourage an exchange of ideas, for those across the continent, and beyond, who are interested in issues of leadership and sustainable development in Africa.

Posts will cover a variety of topics surrounding those two themes, including useful information from our research findings and television programmes, and provide insights on capacity building through tips and tricks from our training programmes. There will also be periodic posts on our events as well as relevant scholarships, fellowships and other programmes that could prove to be useful for the emerging generation of African leaders. Lastly, reviews of books on topics of interest from the our Resource Centre will be posted to help provide recommendations for those interested in diving deeper into the material presented here. We also welcome guest posts from practitioners in fields related to any of the above-mentioned topics. If you are interested in contributing as a guest blogger, please email info@uongozi.or.tz with “Guest Blog Post” as the subject line.

From those of us here at the UONGOZI Institute Blog, we hope to see you here weekly to join the dialogue on these important thematic issues.

About UONGOZI Institute

Uongozi” means leadership in Kiswahili, and inspiring and strengthening leadership is the core purpose of our organisation. UONGOZI Institute was established in 2010 by the Government of Tanzania to inspire and equip Tanzanian and African leaders to deliver inclusive and sustainable solutions. We apply a holistic and mutually reinforcing approach to capacity development, which recognises that leadership competencies are developed through a continuous, lifelong learning process. Our two strategic pillars – leadership and sustainable development – are addressed through four main areas: executive education, policy dialogues, action-oriented research, and technical support. 

Our Vision
A prosperous and equitable Africa through effective leadership for sustainable development.

Our Mission
To inspire and equip African leaders to realise their personal and collective potential to deliver sustainable solutions for African citizens.
