Cultivating Africa's next generation of thought leaders
Launched in 2010, the Thabo Mbeki African Leadership Institute (TMALI) serves as a platform to groom change agents who could address and solve African challenges and issues. The institute also plays a significant role in priming tomorrow’s leaders with numerous students applying for admission every year and taking initiatives that seek to implement what they learn at TMALI.
Patron of TMALIMr Thabo Mbeki is a thought leader who remains close to visible leadership.
His profile as an intellectual, policy shaper and mediator has been built over a lifetime.
