Yaounde, Cameroon—The national youth president of the National Union for Democracy and Progress (NUDP) party, Ndansi Elvis Nukam is amongst 24 Cameroonian youth selected by the USA to participate in this year's Young African Leaders Initiative/Mandela Washington Fellows Program (YALI/MWF).

The fellowship is the flagship programme of President Barack Obama’s Young African Leaders Initiative and a key component of his commitment to invest in the future of Africa.

The 2016 fellows selected from nine of the ten regions of Cameroon will join the list of many other Cameroonians who have benefited from the programme which began in 2014.

They will be posted to hosting colleges and universities in the US in diverse disciplines for a six-week intensive programme on academic excellence and leadership, focusing on business and entrepreneurship, civic leadership, public management, and renewable energy.

Their stay in the US will culminate in a Presidential Summit with the White House tenant in Washington, DC.

“Make the most of this opportunity, learn from the contacts whom you will meet in Washington, D.C. and the academic institutions you have been assigned to, and also offer the best representation for Cameroon, teach the American people about Cameroonian values and about what makes this nation, its cultural heritage, and potential special,” deputy chief of mission at the US Embassy in Yaounde, Matthew D. Smith urged the fellows.

The White House developed the initiative in recognition of the critical and increasing role young Africans were playing in strengthening democratic institutions.
