Under the auspices of President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi, President of the Republic, the Ministry of Youth and Sports, chaired by Dr Ashraf Sobhi, will launch the program of the Leader Gamal Abdel Nasser Fellowship for International Leadership -2nd Cohort during the first half of next June, under the theme “South-South Cooperation”.
The Nasser Fellowship for International Leadership builds on Egypt’s ongoing efforts -following its chairmanship of the African Union for the year 2019- to strengthen the African youth role by providing them with all forms of support, habilitation and training, in addition to empowering them to occupy leadership positions, in order to capitalize on their capacities and insights. It is also one of the implementation mechanisms of the following: Egypt Vision 2030 -10 principles of the Afro-Asian People’s Solidarity Organization -Africa Agenda 2063 -Sustainable Development Goals 2030 -South – South Cooperation -African Union Roadmap on Harnessing the Demographic Dividend through Investments in Youth -African Youth Charter.
The Fellowship targets 100 youth leaders from (Africa – Asia – Latin America), 50% males and 50% females, who are chosen according to the Africa Agenda 2063.
It should be noted that the Nasser Leadership Fellowship -1st Cohort was launched in June 2019 under the auspices of Prime Minister Dr Mostafa Madbouly, targeting young African executive leaders from different professional disciplines within their own communities, with the objective of popularizing Egypt’s development experience in institution/national character building.
