As one of Africa’s leading academic institutions, the ALA seeks to encourage a brighter future for the continent and the various cultures housed within. The institution accepts students from more than 44 African nations, demonstrating their efforts to educate students from a variety of backgrounds. Upon acceptance, students will embark on a lifelong programme focused on outstanding leadership, entrepreneurial spirit and a great comprehension of African studies in order to forge a tremendous impact upon the future of the continent. With this, the academy accepts varied contributions from companies, corporations and those of the general public holding similar hopes for Africa’s advancement.
Those wishing to contribute to the ALA may do so in a variety of ways.
