The conference’s overarching goals were:
- To have a solution-driven conversation with policy-makers, educators, administrators, philanthropists and those interested in capacity-building about the challenges and opportunities in education on the African continent.
- To elevate and mainstream the conversation on education as a key component of the economic development narrative of Africa.
- To use AAI’s convening power, visibility and thought-leadership to uniquely identify the primary obstacles and practical interventions, which must be implemented to improve the educational landscape in Africa.
