Young Africans Leadership Initiative

On February 14, the Embassy hosted a post-conference panel discussion of the Young Africans Leadership Initiative – Regional Leadership Conference (YALI-RLC).  The conference itself was held in Dakar, Senegal, in early December 2018.  The conference was attended by 12 members of the Chadian chapter of the YALI program.  The panel discussion at the Embassy this week generated spirited discussion among the meeting’s 62 participants on the range of issues addressed in Dakar:  civic leadership, business creation and entrepreneurship, pubic management, and public finance.
