"Under US President Barak Obama’s Young African Leaders Initiative, 25 Africans leaders will head to the University of California, Davis for the first and only energy-themed institute offered through the Mandela Washington Fellowship. 

The fellowship is the flagship of the Young African Leaders Initiative. 

At UC Davis’ Specialized Institute on Energy: Pathways to Zero-Net Energy, the fellows will experience a living lab for energy efficiency which is ranked third in the world by the GreenMetric World University Ranking.
