17-18 October 2016, all day at the Sofitel Rabat in Morocco | #APF16
The 2016 African Philanthropy Forum, to be held in Morocco just a few weeks before the 22nd session of the Conference of the Parties (COP 22) to the UNFCCC, presents a unique opportunity to reflect on the required bold steps and big bets, especially in response to the agricultural, climate, energy, governance and urbanization challenges facing the African Continent. It also provides philanthropists and social investors on the Continent with the opportunity to consider the critical and strategic roles that they have to play individually and collectively in this journey of transformation.
The African Philanthropy Forum (APF) seeks to build and continuously expand a learning community of Africa’s strategic philanthropists and social investors committed to inclusive and sustainable economic development throughout the continent; to embed that community in a larger, global network of strategic philanthropists and development experts who share their goals; and, through educational programs and match-making services, to inform, enable, and enhance the development impact of their giving and investing. The APF is an affiliate of the Global Philanthropy Forum.
Participation is by invitation only and open to emerging and established African donors and social investors who have made, or plan to make, a significant commitment to philanthropy.
