2015 African Philanthropy Forum Conference
Starts: Monday, 26 October, 2015 06:30am
Ends: Tuesday, 27 October, 2015 12:00pm
The 2015 APF Conference will look at some of the key levers that can protect and build the capacity of Africa’s human capital and talent — investments in better health systems to improve health indicators and ward off the threat of epidemics; investments in STEM and centers of excellence to nurture the innovators of tomorrow; investments in a skilled workforce that can address Africa’s infrastructure needs; transformative approaches that increase the inclusion of women leaders across sectors; and investments in entrepreneurship to unleash the creativity of those who will be providing the jobs of tomorrow. And while philanthropy alone cannot address the challenges that each of these represents, it has a special role to play — as a partner with government, the business sector and public institutions; as a risk taker and an enabler giving birth to new ideas, new possibilities and new collaborations across sectors.
