The Ashinaga Africa Initiative is an academic leadership programme with the mission to contribute to Sub-Saharan Africa’s expanding role in global development through increasing access to higher education abroad for students who are committed to returning home, or to the region of Sub-Saharan Africa, to initiate change, innovation, and development. The Ashinaga Sénégal office was created in 2015 and is responsable for running the Study Camp for students from francophone Africa in order to prepare them for their university studies abroad.
