The ALofT Project is a competitive, online-based youth development programme designed to cultivate future thought leaders by empowering African youths with a wide range of relevant knowledge, experience and skills.
Self-motivated, critically-minded students interested in developing as future thought-leaders, innovators and pacesetters are invited to apply to The ALofT Project.

These successful applicants will acquire research, writing, analytical and other important skills, and will have the opportunity to put these skills into practice and gain valuable work experience through collaboration with the IOA team on Africa-focused research projects.
