African Local Leaders Portfolio

The African Local Leaders Portfolio was established by Partners for Equity in 2019 to provide agency to proximate leaders. It is our belief that those who are embedded in their communities are best placed to design solutions which meet the needs of those communities.

We provide direct financial support, leveraged financial support and capacity support (when requested) to enable those leaders to design, implement and evaluate programs. This serves as a catalyst to systemic change leading to increased impact for communities across Sub Saharan Africa.
