Inviting the public to the panel discussion, CCW2022 organisers wrote: “The collective communities of practice supporting systems change for thriving African Social Enterprises & their supporters towards the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) call for a renewed vision and partnership-driven commitment to reshape the evolving narrative, shift the social impact funding paradigm, embed principles of equity, resiliency and proximate power; showcase path-breaking initiatives and innovations, and further develop the social impact sector for the Africa we want.
“To rapidly accelerate an ‘Africans for Africa Call to Action’ that places African narratives at the heart of collaborative partnership-driven opportunities and lays out pathways for supporting the common purpose and shared value, we will: A. Showcase policy imperatives to create an enabling environment for Social Entrepreneurs to thrive; B. Give clear steps for donors, bilaterals, multilaterals and other partners who want to help scale impact for proximity Social Entrepreneurs across Africa; and C. Pool resources to scale impact for sustainable & mature ecosystems where the sector shares essential skills, services and taps into new connected networks.
“The launch of Africa’s Impact Leadership session is a co-created initiative informed by the contributions of Africa Chapter members.”
