African Diaspora Leadership Initiative (AfDiLI) was borne out of the passion, determination, and desire of a group of African students and professionals in the Netherlands to change the narratives of the African Continent from backward, dependent and undeveloped to a resilient, developed, self-reliant and economically prosperous continent.
