Read To Lead is aimed at inspiring young people to take reading as a culture enroute leadership. Reading is a core habit of every leader that has succeeded.

On ground, Young Protégé Leadership Foundation collaborates with several NGOs and CSOs to deliver community advocacy projects that foster the improvement of literacy among children and young adults. Relying on donor funding, we have worked with 6 Not for profit organizations to facilitate teaching leadership session using the Protégé LEAD game. Protégé LEAD game is the first African leadership paper board game that teaches leadership skill using a fun and play to learn methodology.

The Protégé LEAD game is a board game with 41 playing cards, a dice, and 4-player cards. The game moves from the conventional way of teaching leadership in a class format to using a board game. We have gotten amazing testimonies from players on how the Protégé LEAD game has help in simplifying learning basic leadership values. The game also comes with a free book, pen, pencil, eraser, and ruler to support the education of the African child. We also tell social change stories on climate change, poverty, education etcetera using attractive and colorful comic books.

Our past, and recent engagement with the Global Education First Initiative (GEFI), an initiative of the former United Nations Secretary General, Mr Ban Ki Mon has allowed us to contribute to development of a unified global curriculum for global citizenship education which could be localize in any country.
