Rita Marley and Desmond Tutu share an embrace
Mrs. Marley and Honorable Bishop Desmond Tutu
On August 1st, 2006, Mrs. Rita Marley became an official patron for the Emerging Leadership Programme in South Africa.

It is a project that cultivates, recognizes and rewards youth who have displayed remarkable leadership qualities; and whose works have positively impacted and extraordinarily transformed their communities.

Learn more about the program from the Emerging Leadership Programme website.

On September 15, 2006 Africa Unite was made aware that the Desmond Tutu Peace Centre and the Emerging Leadership Programme will separate. This is to allow the respective growth paths of both entities to be optimized, without the encumbrance of operating under one umbrella.
