“The need to touch lives and improve the living condition of women and girls in disadvantaged communities inspires me every day,” said Chukwudera Bridget Okeke, Board Member of Concern Women International Development Initiative.
Yesterday I was privileged to address the crowd gathered at the 2018 Global Citizen Festival: Mandela 100 in Johannesburg and announce our commitment to educate 100,000 more entrepreneurs across Africa.
It was fitting that this year’s festival also marked what would have been Nelson Mandela’s 100th birthday. As a man famed for his commitment to equality and community, his legacy is reflected in the work both Global Citizen and HP are doing in South Africa and across the continent to tackle inequality and build communities.
