We deliver opportunities for growth, connections, global recognition, and sustainable development targeted at Africans, people of African descent and other key Africa stakeholders.

At the heart of the ALO journey is our passion for the development of the African continent and its people, drawing from our purpose, which is to help people achieve more and become more - as we showcase Africa, African opportunities, and African excellence to the world; inspiring a new generation of African changemakers and helping to address the negative narrative and stereotypes about the continent.

ALO Sustainability

We are signatures to the UN Global Compact, using business as a force for good, and mobilizing a coalition of African leaders to commit to actions that drive Sustainable development on the continent. We are primarily committed to helping in addressing SDG Goals 1 and 4 in Africa, with components of Goals 5, 9 and 13 – helping to eradicate extreme poverty and access to quality education, using climate action, gender equality and innovative entrepreneurship as our tools.

Our strategic investments and contributions are therefore in the following areas:


Education support for Orphans and Vulnerable Children in Africa


Annual Tree planting exercise as part of our climate action and Environmental protection


Youth Leadership & Entrepreneurship Development


Empowerment programs

We drive our ESG agenda through two key vehicles, viz, the Centre for Economic & Leadership Development (CELD), an NGO in special consultative status with the UN ECOSOC since June 2012 and funded primarily by a percentage of our corporate profits; and the African Leadership Council (ALC), a pan-African leaders’ network for development and coalition against extreme poverty
