AGI is working for a future in which Africa’s development is led by Africans, with governments that are capable of setting and achieving priorities that reflect the rising aspirations and expectations of their citizens. To achieve this vision, we provide practical advice and support to help African leaders to bridge the gap between their vision for a better future and the capacity of their governments to achieve it. We work with countries – currently Nigeria, Sierra Leone, Liberia, Rwanda and Guinea – that are at turning points and where we have had an invitation from the Head of Government to provide capacity development support.
Our model combines the experience of AGI’s founder and Patron, Mr. Blair, with on-the-ground teams of professionals working shoulder-to-shoulder with counterparts in the heart of partner governments – in Presidential Offices, Investment Agencies and key Ministries – to develop capacity and put in place the skills, systems and structures needed to drive the delivery of real results on the ground. We are a young organisation but one which has grown fast in the four years since we were founded. Ours is an innovative development model which is showing real impact in our partner countries in Africa.
