Nurturing the Next Generation of African Leaders, Regardless of Gender

The ICanSheCan campaign shines a spotlight on the present and future leaders of Africa. ICanSheCan aims to inspire the next generation of Ashinga’s Female African leaders to pursue higher education and use it to transform their own communities. By affirming: “I can, she can,” our supporters united in sending the message – today’s young African women are the leaders of tomorrow.

Through the ICanSheCan campaign, Ashinaga aims to raise awareness on female leadership and encourage young girls across Sub-Saharan Africa to apply to our fully funded leadership program, the Ashinaga Africa Initiative.

Ashinaga Africa Initiative

Though the Ashinaga Africa Initiative (AAI) we aim to contribute to Sub-Saharan Africa’s expanding role in global development through increasing access to international higher education. AAI Scholars are students who have lost one or both parents and are committed to returning to the region of Sub-Saharan Africa to initiate change, innovation, and development. Ashinaga provides each selected AAI Scholar with the academic and financial support to study abroad, as well as access to mentoring and career guidance. After graduation, Scholars return home, empowered to turn their vision into reality.
