“YALI has taught me that, we African leaders are all part of the same mission to elevate our people and end inequalities.” – Matilda Kerry. A thousand young leaders from Sub-Saharan Africa participated in the 2016 Mandela Washington fellowship, a flagship program of President Obama’s Young African Leaders Initiative (YALI).  Among them was Founder/CEO of George Kerry life foundation – Dr Matilda Kerry.  Her inspirational leadership and passion for women’s health landed her a spot at the Andrew Young School of Policy studies, Georgia state University, Atlanta where for over 6 weeks she learnt and brought back best international practices to community health projects in Nigeria. ‪#‎MandelaFellowMonday ‪#‎Nigeria‪#‎YALI2016
