Co-Creating Abundance in West Africa

This session discusses new ways to address root causes for suffering in West Africa as defined by West African peoples. We will explore new strategies and processes to reinforce local efforts, achieve more efficient and effective "development" projects, and how to move from "international aid" to "international engagement and empowerment". We will explore sustainable economics, strategic partnerships, hybrid/cross-sector models, and how hybrid organizations/partnerships offer new potential.

 

With Deidre Schuetz, the Co-Founder and Co-Director for Lanyi Fan, a nonprofit, international non-government organization in West Africa
