What is TOP Africa?
The Orator Project Africa was founded in 2014 by Sucex Bright & Uzo Ogbonna. We are a Nigerian based organization that gathers together the brightest young leaders from around Africa, empowering them to make lasting connections to create positive change.
We stage an annual Summit where the most valuable young talent from Africa and national companies, NGOs, universities and other forward-thinking organizations are joined by world leaders, acting as the TOP Africa ambassadors.
At the Summit, delegates debate, formulate and share innovative solutions for the pressing issues Africa faces which include political leadership.
At past Conferences and Summits delegates were joined by a line-up of facilitators that included Hon Dipo Olorunrinu of Lagos State House of Assembly, Dr Larry Jones of London Academy Business School, Vckie Ndunagum, The Vice President Nnauk, United Kingdom, HE Mrs Modupe Ojodu Executive Secretary Amuwo Odofin LG. Asu Ekiye, SA to the Government of Bayelsa State on Entertainment, and many more.
After each Summit, the delegates, who are then known as TOP Africa Ambassadors, work on their own initiatives or collaborate with other TOP Africa networks to create opportunities that benefits their communities.
Who can be a TOP Africa Ambassador?
TOP Africa delegates are 18-45 years old who have demonstrated leadership ability and a commitment to effecting positive change. Many have already had an impact in their home countries on a range of issues, including the role of business in society, transparency in business and government, the impact of climate change, global health and hunger relief.
At the Summit Closing Ceremony, delegates graduate as TOP Africa Ambassadors, joining a network of young leaders who are creating positive change around the world and an award will be given to those deserving of it.
How is it funded?
Delegates’ expenses to attend a Summit may be funded by private citizens, companies, NGOs, education establishments and public bodies.
The cost for each delegate attending the Summit encompasses travel within the host city, accommodation, meals, and wireless connectivity.
Where will the next Summit be held?
