Launched in 2021, the GOA Alumni Grant Program encourages our alumni to create change within their own lives and communities as they walk the path to becoming future leaders.


Giants of Africa knows that youth can create lasting, meaningful change in their communities. This grant will support alumni in bringing a community-focused initiative to life. Whether it is organizing a local food drive or hosting a youth empowerment event, the goal of the initiative must have a positive impact on their local community.

This grant will give two previous Alumni Grant winners (1 French-speaking, 1 English-speaking) the opportunity to represent and engage all alumni while fostering ways to strengthen relationships with other alumni.
