Seeking to highlight the role of innovation in national development, grant making non-profit organisation, Aspire Coronation Trust (ACT) Foundation is set to host the fifth edition of its annual Breakfast Dialogue, on the 14th & 15th of September, 2021.
Themed “Reimagining the Future of Development: Learn, Adjust, Thrive!”, the 2021 (virtual) edition of the Breakfast Dialogue, is geared to spur innovative strategies and encourage multisectoral collaboration across Africa that can alleviate some of the biggest societal problems such as poverty, inequality, and unemployment.
Speaking on the event, CEO of the ACT Foundation, Osayi Alile, stated that the “event will be a springboard for long-term strategies toward building more resilient and prosperous communities and institutions across Africa.”
“In terms of development, we must always acknowledge the existence of societal deficits, and we cannot dismiss the urge for rapid progress; otherwise, we risk portraying an image of a nation and worse still, a planet beyond saving. This is why, in our quest for a better Africa, we must prioritize innovation and collaboration. In a sense, at this event, we are lifting our hands and saying yes to Africa’s social development,” she continued.
The ACT Foundation Breakfast Dialogue is organised to drive multilateral collaboration among diverse stakeholders toward addressing Africa’s most critical social and economic issues.
