On September 5, 2016, Wellspring Foundation’s Abundant Leadership Institute (ALI) started its academic year with a new cohort of students. Education leaders and school entrepreneurs from Rwanda and across the region are participating in the course this year. For a week, students were taken through a series of topics known as the “Foundations of Abundant Leadership”, which is an introductory overview of the core modules that will be taught throughout the course.

“Here at the Abundant Leadership Institute, we seek to join together a cohort of leaders who have a vision to transform the education sector. We want to help them bring that vision to a reality. Today, we’re beginning our Foundations module. This course guides our students on a journey from a scarcity mentality of leadership to an abundant mentality, which will ultimately aid them in changing their schools and their communities. In addition, this module works to bind the students together in a cohort of leaders who can support each other on this journey of transformation”
