Innocent Chukwuma African NGO Leadership Transition Fellowship Program 2022
In conjunction with the Centre on African Philanthropy and Social Investment (CAPSI), the Association for Research on Civil Society in Africa (AROCSA) announces the call for applications for the Innocent Chukwuma African NGO Leadership Transition Fellowship Program (ICLTFP) in 2022.
The program’s main goal is to assist industry leaders in preparing and positioning their NGOs to be sustainable, dynamic, and thriving after they leave.
The program assists both leaders and organizations in making a successful transition, allowing a new generation of social sector leaders to not only emerge but also to exploit their creative and youthful energy.
Transitioning leaders would create succession plans for their companies, think about their own personal transition plans, and record their expertise and experience.
