Our friend Bill Jensen’s new breakthrough leadership book is The Day Tomorrow Said No. It’s a short illustrated fable about the future of work, driven by actual data for the Age of Artificial Intelligence. This fable revolutionizes conversations about the future of work between leaders, the workforce, educators, parents and students.
We are thrilled to partner with Bill on this book. Bill is launching this book through Kickstarter. All pledges also send books to our teachers in Kenya and Tanzania. Please go here to support this wonderful book’s Kickstarter campaign.
Asante Africa is now a partner with Girls not Brides, joining more than 1000 civil society organizations from over 95 countries working to end child marriage and enable girls to fulfill their potential. Asante Africa’s Girls’ Advancement Program continues to improve the attendance and classroom performance of girls in Kenya and Tanzania. Education is an important factor in reducing child marriage and helping girls to reach their full potential. Girls who have no education are three times as likely to marry by age 18 compared to girls with secondary or higher education.
Giving Tuesday, November 27, 2018
Giving Tuesday is a global movement for giving and volunteering. It takes place each year right after Black Friday, and is a time when charities, companies and individuals join together and rally for their favorite causes. You can help by sharing our #GivingTuesday posts on social media, encouraging your friends and family to take part, and by donating yourself. Facebook and PayPal will match donations made on Facebook using PayPal starting at 5am PST on November 27 and continue matching donations to nonprofits until their $7M match runs out.
Together, we’re growing the next generation of confident and empowered African youth.
