The Mo Ibrahim Foundation was established in 2006 with a focus on the critical importance of leadership and governance in Africa.

African countries need to define a strategy – a ‘business plan’ – built on an inclusive vision which assesses and prioritizes challenges, makes the best use of human, natural and financial resources and closely monitors results in order to ensure efficient and tangible implementation.
The Foundation, which is a non-grant making organisation, focuses on defining, assessing and enhancing governance and leadership in Africa
