Africa school of diplomacy is founded on three key principles, credibility, perceptiveness and confidence building. The school was founded in 2016 for the sole purpose of building and improving the capacity of our existing diplomats and leaders in Africa. We believe that every individual working in a government office or in a leadership role should prioritize the advancement of the office that they represent. Our programs and courses are thus set to bring clarity, comprehensiveness, and circumspection to each of the participating members. The end result is a more astute leader, who can carry himself or herself with the highest standards expected of their office.
