Why It Matters
There are at least 50 millions orphans in Africa; in the last five years alone, over 1 billion dollars in foreign aid has been spent on this population, yet the international community is still struggling to deal with this mounting crisis. Addressing this enormous challenge is too much for any one organization to tackle alone. This is why Goods for Good is hosting a forum with The Vice President of Malawi, The Right Honorable Joyce Banda, key NGO’s and experts in the field to discuss the current situation and best way forward.
The evening will offer participants the chance to learn about this topic from a wide range of perspectives, revealing the unique knowledge and experience of different players.
This event is generously supported by Merck.
