The Tony Elumelu Foundation has announced the appointment of Ms. Désirée Younge from Sierra Leone, as Director of Leadership and Entrepreneurship Development.

Younge comes to the Foundation with extensive experience in philanthropy and impact investing through her work with the Synergos Institute’s Global Philanthropists Circle, as well as the Robin Hood Foundation, both based in the United States.

For the past three years, she has run her own US-based philanthropic strategy advisory company, working with philanthropists, not-for profit organisations and businesses to help them strategically execute on their philanthropic missions.

“I am excited to join The Tony Elumelu Foundation, an African foundation that’s thinking about philanthropy from a non-traditional perspective, and finding innovative solutions to drive long-term economic and social impact to improve the capabilities, and showcase the untapped leadership potential of Africans,” said Younge.
