The African Students For Liberty (ASFL) Local Coordinators Program is the premier program for actively advancing the ideas of free markets and individual liberty on college & campuses. ASFL Local Coordinators (LCs) are the face of liberty on their campuses. They are the muscle of the movement, empowering students in their areas to defend the ideas of liberty. This local program seeks to identify strong student leaders to spread the ideas of individual liberty, self-reliance and economic freedom by starting new student groups, organizing events to promote these ideas, resourcing student groups and identifying and mentoring other vibrant students.
These young individuals are dedicated to spreading the ideas of human dignity, individual and economic freedom, and the ability to pursue one’s happiness without coercion.
If you are a student in Africa, the ASFL Open Online Local Coordinator Program is an amazing opportunity for you to join the network of young people whose efforts are constantly changing the world. Also, students who could not complete the training program in the past for different reasons can access our training materials, complete the assigned tasks and eventually become part of our Leadership in their regions.
African Students For Liberty therefore provides a platform for African Students to generate and share ideas that will lead to a peaceful and liberated Africa. ASFL exists to provide support for pro-liberty students and student groups across the continent, by providing them with training and resources for the advancement of liberty in Africa.
