Associate for Leader Development
Mark Orr is founder and catalyst of Leadership 555, a project to birth systemic change throughout Africa by catalyzing leaders. It combines new approaches to leadership training, a national connecting framework, and an emphasis on sustainable, local resources.
Beginning the pilot in early 2012, Mark led a team of six in Uganda who began training a network of committed leaders, a core of catalysts, and exploring replication possibilities in neighboring countries and a long-range resourcing network to facilitate growth across Africa. This includes a Resource Task Force of Ugandans developing “made in Uganda” solutions for ownership, long-term resourcing, and developing a culture of generosity among African business owners. Mark also works closely with the Association of Evangelicals in Africa.
