Panel Discussion: Fostering Entrepreneurial Skills in East Africa’s Youth

Wednesday, September 9 2020

8:30-10:00AM PDT  | 11:30-1:00PM EDT  | 6:30-8:00PM East Africa Time

Join us for a free dynamic virtual dialogue to discuss the reimagining of education in face of the current crisis and how we can foster entrepreneurial skills in east Africa’s youth. In response to the challenges faced by the education sector, with reduced educational access to many and the digital divide that keeps the most vulnerable youth in continued poverty and unemployment, teachers and leaders are struggling to meet the needs of the vulnerable communities.

Our panelists, leaders who work with youth in East Africa and around the world, will share their perspective and discuss ways to adapt and ensure flexibility in education during the crisis and beyond.
