During the USA Black History Month (February 2018), New Future Foundation, Friends of the African Union and allies will launch a new financing and funding framework for education in Africa in public-private partnerships that use community benefit agreements. We will discuss the new framework at a in person and online conference April 12-13th 2018, in Washington DC, entitled: “African Civil Society Financing Africa’s Future: Unlocking Potentials through Community Benefit Agreements.” This conference will examine how community benefit agreements and public private partnerships can be used to improve educational opportunities, deliver sustainable power generation, and erase the digital divide. Community benefit agreements are commitments made by banks or other institutions to invest or make capital available in specified ways. For example, in 2016, Fifth Third Bank made a five-year, $30 billion community benefit agreement commitment aimed at improving lives and the well-being of communities throughout its geographic footprint, in this case to support erasing the digital divide in Africa from its HQ city Cincinnati which is sister city to Harare Zimbabwe.

Hi Livia, The video you posted from the equity ad nclusion dialogue doesn't seem to work. We (humanity and inclusion) would like to share it (as it figures our speaker, Monique). Is it possible to get the link to work? Thanks a lot! Marijke
