Princeton in Africa: Year in Review 2022-2023

Our 2022-23 Princeton in Africa Annual Report is now live

Welcome to our 2022-2023 Annual Report: Expanding The Program’s Reach. This report briefly highlights the impact and innovations Princeton in Africa has had through our programs in Africa and the United States over the past year. 

Throughout the 2022-2023 Fellowship year, our Fellows supported our daring host organization partners in tackling issues ranging from education inequity, health access, and environmental conservation to addressing the refugee crisis. They pursued impactful research projects and developed new technologies to support Africa’s growing youth population. These experiences, made possible by our generous donors and partners, have transformed the lives of Young American and African leaders.

Our Fellows and Alumni, engaged in community service and critical conversations about sustainable development, have contributed their expertise to diversity, equity, and inclusion practices while challenging hegemonic attitudes towards development. They have rooted themselves in supporting communities, people, and organizations across the African continent in a sustainable and impactful manner.

Over the past year, we proudly launched the Nexus program, facilitating a co-fellow exchange of skills, knowledge, experiences, and expertise between Fellows educated and residing on the African continent and their counterparts from U.S. accredited institutions. We saw applicants from 32 total countries for the Princeton in Africa program. This initiative exemplifies our commitment to cultivating collaboration and a shared commitment to positive change.

This report serves as a testament to the profound impact of the 2022-2023 Fellowship year. Our Fellows, Alumni, Staff, Board Members, and Donors have collectively demonstrated the power of our mission. We extend our deepest gratitude to all contributors for their unwavering support as we continue to develop a generation of global changemakers.
