2015 African Philanthropy Forum

The Promise to the Next Generation

• Kigali, Rwanda

The 2015 APF Conference looked at some of the key investments in Africa’s human capital and talent. Among them were investments in health systems to improve outcomes and ward off the threat of epidemics; in STEM education and centers of excellence to nurture the innovators of tomorrow; in a skilled workforce that can address Africa’s infrastructure needs; in the inclusion of women leaders across sectors; and in entrepreneurship to unleash the creativity of those who will be providing the jobs of tomorrow. And while philanthropy alone cannot meet all of these challenges, it has a special role to play — as a partner with government, the business sector and public institutions, and as a risk taker and an enabler, giving birth to new ideas, new collaborations and new possibilities.
