5000 students registered in 3 days. We decided to open to 10 000 students.



Covid-19 has led to an unprecedented health crisis across the globe. It has also triggered an economic crisis never seen in the past 4 decades. The IMF has projected global growth in 2020 to fall to -3% & -1,6% for Africa.

The African economy will be severely impacted. Globalisation will slow down leading to less investment and trade.  More than ever Africa will need its youth to build its future.

ShARE will adapt its  2-year Leadership Programme of Excellence to craft a 5-week leadership programme offered for free to 1 000 10 000 African University students and young professionals to sharpen their corporate skills and help them to get ready for the corporate world thereby helping build tomorrow’s African economy.
