ALU Featured on CNN African Voices

ALU was recently featured on CNN African Voices’ African Changemakers series. The short documentary titled “The Harvard of Africa,” highlights ALU’s vision of developing the next generation of leaders through rethinking how higher education is done.

“The greatest equaliser in life is education and if you can give people the chance to get this education then we can actually get people out of poverty and into the middle class and eventually create wealth for others” says Fred Swaniker, Founder of ALU.
