I have been invited by the African Union to take part in the Innovating Education in Africa Expo
from 4-6 October 2018 in Dakar, Senegal .This is a big opportunity for me, as I am in the process of building Africonnect School of Business, Leadership and Innovation. It has been a dream and ongoing desire of mine, to improve the state of our education through an approach that transcends textbook knowledge.
Due to the nature of my work and studies, I cannot meet the financial implications of this Expo. Therefore, I would like to appeal to any potential individuals and organizations to assist me in attending this expo in order to establish and connect with potential partners for my school, which I intend on establishing soon.I require funding to pay for accomodation and flights to the expo. The 35000 will be spent as follows; R30 000 (flights to Dakar Senegal- connecting flight will be in Ethiopia from OR Tambo). This will include return flights. R5000 for accomodation and food
Purpose of the expo is to identify innovations that can be replicated and up scaled. It will provide a platform for engagement among innovators and their innovations, including education practitioners, researchers, learners, policy makers and financiers.
