I will be speaking at the “27th Eastern Africa Resource Mobilisation Workshop.” on Harnessing Corporations: Partnering with the “For Profit” Sector.
The ‘for-profit’ private sector is now a key player in the development landscape. They are pushing the sustainable development agenda through funding many development initiatives as well as implementing others. Many corporations like Master Card and Toyota have foundations that support various causes. The Africa region has not been left behind with a growing number of foundations such as I&M, Safaricom and Equity gracing the landscape. These different foundations have mapped their scope and strategic directions with many of them having their own funding to support their focus area. However, there are many corporate foundations and companies that value the work done by development organizations and seek to partner with them. This session takes a closer look at corporations and highlights the opportunities and challenges that they offer, especially during this Covid-19 era. It will flag out ways to partner with corporate that offer funding prospects to strategic implementing partners, academic institutions, government agencies and other stakeholders.
