Applications are open for Huduma Fellowship Program 2021 for Emerging Public Leaders in Uganda. The Huduma (Swahili for Public Service) Fellowship is an initiative by the LéO Africa Institute and Konrad Adenauer Stiftung, to provide thought leadership training for emerging public sector leaders in Uganda. Every year, the programme will enrol 15 outstanding young and emerging leaders, who already work in public service or aspire to do so. These leaders from multidisciplinary backgrounds will undertake a year-long training on various aspects of leadership, public affairs management, and policy making.
The programme will offer the fellows an opportunity to learn ideals of “servant” leadership, offer networking opportunities, and a deeper understanding of the public sector in Uganda to aid fellows’ growth as conscious public sector leaders.
The Huduma Fellowship is modelled on the Institute’s other successful fellowship programme, the Young and Emerging Leaders’ Project (YELP), which annually inducts outstanding young and emerging leaders who are committed to achieving success and living high-impact lives. Huduma Fellows will undertake some of the previously designed modules and seminars on personal leadership and critical thinking from the YELP programme.
The Huduma fellowship is structured along a series of 2 seminars and 2 workshops in between which Fellows will spend time at their work places with occasional interface with the members of the faculty as they continue to learn and apply the knowledge and skills acquired.
Fellows from outside Government Ministries, Departments and Agencies will be placed at any of the said departments for their practical sessions and learning the working of public service. Feedback from these placements and time spent at work will be brought back to the online sessions, workshops and seminars to enhance learning and experience sharing.
