The LoAI Approach
Advocacy for the Good
& Knowledge Production in a Global Impact Community
The Leaders of Africa Institute pursues a wholistic approach that spans inquiry and research to the creation of impactful evidence-based initiatives. Unlike normal degree programs that rely heavily on lectures, exams, and memorization, LoAI relies on impact education that is portfolio-building, creative-shaping, and life-changing.
The LoAI model of learning and impact is a four-part cycle that begins with research and continues with creating innovative solutions. At the LoAI, we value crafting research and creative solutions to engage the public resulting in meaningful impact. Instead of specializing in just one aspect of the Impact Cycle, such as research and publication or tech or data analysis, we emphasis the importance of competency and involvement in all parts of the Impact Cycle.
