Obama Meets 500 Young African Leadership Ambassadors

President Barack Obama has commended young Africans attending the 2014 Young African Leadership Initiative (YALI) summit in Washington D.C. in the United States for their efforts to transform the continent.

The US President during the meeting on Monday changed the name of the summit from Young African Leadership Initiative (YALI) to Mandela Washington Fellowship For Young African Leaders, in honour of the late South African leader, Nelson Mandela.

The summit, attended by at least 500 youths from across Sub-Saharan Africa, started with a speech by the Secretary of State, John Kerry, before the conversation session between the YALI fellows and President Barack Obama.

The initiative is President Obama’s signature effort to invest in the next generation of African entrepreneurs, educators and activists.
