African Middle Eastern Leadership Project (AMEL) Institute

African Middle Eastern Leadership Project (AMEL) Institute is a fully online academy that will provide training to local activists (18-35 years old) all over the Middle East and Africa (MEA). The goal of the Institute is to empower young people who are taking action to address human rights violations, inequalities, injustices, discrimination, conflicts or other issues affecting their communities. AMEL aims to help make these efforts more effective and sustainable by providing practical knowledge, skills and networks to the activists who are leading them.
