The Director of Don Musso Educational Village in Odumase, Bono Region, Daniel Adama has been selected among Ghana’s representatives for the 2022 Mandela Washington Fellowship.
About 32 people will represent Ghana in this year’s Fellowship.
The Mandela Washington Fellowship for Young African Leaders is the flagship program of the U.S. Government’s Young African Leaders Initiative (YALI).
The Fellowship will provide 700 outstanding young leaders from Sub-Saharan Africa with the opportunity to hone their skills at a U.S. college or university with support for professional development after they return home in 2022.
Each year, the Fellows participate in six-week Leadership Institutes, studying Business, Civic Engagement, or Public Management at U.S. colleges or universities. During their time on campus, Fellows connect with Americans and enrich local U.S. communities while sharing best practices.
