Although we are an American organization, our roots are global. In 2003, Peter Mombaur, Fred Swaniker and Chris Bradford envisioned creating the African Leadership Academy, a school to develop future leaders of Africa, regardless of income. Fred Swaniker, a Stanford MBA who is originally from Ghana who grew up all over Africa, realized that the greatest obstacle to African development was leadership. In an effort to combat this problem, they began developing a pan-African high school which would offer a world-class education and promote ethical and principled leadership among top high school students from all over the continent. As a way to develop the curriculum, they created a summer program called the Summer Academy at Cape Town. This summer program would later become known as Global Leadership Adventures.
At this point, Fred decided to focus all his energy on creating this new high school. Peter Mombaur was so inspired by his experience with the Summer Academy that he and Andrew Motiwalla established Terra Education in the United States to connect American students with international leadership programs. Today, Terra Education is a leading educational travel agency, and is also the exclusive U.S. representative of Global Leadership Adventures and Discover Corps.
