The Aspen Global Innovators Group is partnering with international advocacy, public affairs and campaigns firm, Niyel, to launch the Impact West Africa program. This initiative is committed to equipping West African based development champions with the necessary tools and training to catalyze profound and lasting change.

Building upon the remarkable success of the New Voices Fellowship model in amplifying the voices of local leaders, we have tailored this approach to a regional context. This fellowship will have champions from both Francophone and Anglophone regions within West Africa.
