Hundreds of African youths and corporate managers will next month gather in Rwanda’s capital Kigali for a leadership summit aimed at unlocking leadership potentials.
“We strongly believe that it is time for Africa to rise and take our place in the world. It is time for the student to become the teacher and the borrower to become the lender,” Emmanuel Ruvurajabo, a member of the organizing team told KT Press.
The summit will attract key speakers from Rwanda, United States, Canada, Kenya and South Africa.
Rwanda is seen as a living example of a country with good leadership that Africans can eagerly emulate and the right place to host the summit.
The summit is organized by Kingdom Builders association in collaboration with International Third World Leaders Association.
“Some key discussions will focus on experience of Rwanda’s extraordinary leadership from the post genocide era, and success story of Rwanda as an example of good leadership in Africa,” Ruvurajabo said.
At the summit, young Rwandans and Africans will be equipped and boosted by fellow leaders who exemplify what visionary leadership can accomplish in changing the course of nations.
Rwanda’s renowned religious leader, Bishop John Rucyahana, will be among the guest speakers to share their experience of leadership. He will be joined by other renowned global leaders, inspired by Dr. Myles Munroe, founder of International Third World Leadership Association.
Dr. Munroe, a renowned speaker and writer, had a vision of transforming followers into leaders and leaders into agents of change.
“He believed that the third world should start raising to higher standards…we have human resources, we have infrastructure and natural resources better than any other place in the world,” Ruvurajabo told KT Press.
Ruvurajabo told KT Press that he believes Rwanda is an excellent example of what vision can do for an entire nation.
“This is why we believe it is time to export, not only the raw material, but also the knowledge and ingenuity of Africa.”
