The Huduma Fellowship program is designed to train a new generation of public sector leaders who appreciate the importance of public service in building a good society. The fellowship is based on LéO Africa Institute’s guiding principles of Clarity (about the leadership challenge in Africa today), Empathy (towards humanity and the environment), Knowledge (widening our understanding of the state of Africa and the world today), and Volunteerism/Servant leadership (developing a spirit of selfless service to the community).
The Huduma Fellowship provides fellows with the opportunity to exercise servant leadership in the public sector and further enhances their understanding of how future public sector leaders can contribute to improving the quality of service delivery. The fellowship also nurtures a new cadre of politically conscious actors in the public space in Uganda and offers intense mentorship opportunities tailored to each fellow’s career track.
