ALA and Sadili Partner To Offer BIAB For Girl Power

On the 11th and 12th of July, Sadili Oval partnered with African Leadership Academy to run a camp at Sadili for 23 select Girl Power Clubs, an exciting way to engage youth in problem identification and solving skills, and developing entrepreneurship ideas run by amazing ALA young leaders, who really inspired the girls.

African Leadership Academy (ALA) seeks to transform Africa by developing a powerful network of over 6,000 leaders who will work together to address Africa’s greatest challenges, achieve extraordinary social impact and accelerate the continent’s growth trajectory. ALA identifies young leaders between the ages of 16-19 from across the continent with demonstrated leadership potential, a passion for Africa, an entrepreneurial spirit, and a track record of community service. These young leaders are then brought together for a two-year pre-university program centred on a unique Entrepreneurial Leadership and African Studies curriculum at our world-class boarding institution in Johannesburg, South Africa.
As part of their leadership journey, ALA students and alumni often take the initiative to run Entrepreneurial Leadership camps in their home countries, embedding them in the practice of leadership through applied learning, and enabling access to networks of opportunities and resources that will further their growth, learning and impact. ALA’s Center for Entrepreneurial Leadership (CEL) has designed a toolkit to support our students run these Entrepreneurial Leadership camps called BUILD-in-a-Box. BUILD-in-a-Box is a portable toolkit that provides content and teaching materials that allows a team of ALA students and alumni, as facilitators, to run a professional two- day Entrepreneurial Leadership camp.
BUILD-in-a-Box is centered on a unique curriculum framework for teaching youth entrepreneurship as a way of fighting youth unemployment and engaging youth to lead solutions to local problems. The acronym BUILD stands for:
BELIEVE that you have the power to change the world around you, and embrace a mind-set of continual improvement.
UNDERSTAND the community you intend to serve with an entrepreneurial venture. INVENT a wide range of possible solutions by prototyping and testing their
LISTEN to feedback from potential customers & other stakeholders and
continually seek iteration and improvement.
DELIVER impactful new ventures and solutions by mobilizing resources and
leveraging networks.
Allowing ALA students and alumni to run BUILD-in-a-Box camps will activate the entrepreneurial mindsets of participants and create opportunities for them to gain firsthand experience designing and leading enterprises that are directly tied to local issues and opportunities in their countries.
