Social Entrepreneurs’ Rapid Response to Crisis
When disaster strikes, only the flexible and responsive thrive
April 21, 2021
The African Diaspora Network and the King Baudouin Foundation United States (KBFUS) organized the webinar, ‘Social Entrepreneurs’ Rapid Response to Crisis.’
When disaster strikes, only the flexible and responsive thrive. The uncertainties of a global pandemic and the increasing challenges of climate change overwhelmed even the most well-funded organizations. But where top international NGOs may falter to respond to changed conditions on the ground, locally-led social entrepreneurs can thrive.
SaCoDé, Dandelion Africa, and Onelamp are three organizations that successfully navigated the many challenges of 2020. With a fraction of the resources their international counterparts received, SaCoDé, Dandelion Africa, and Onelamp will share their unique mission-driven approach and creativity that enabled continued operations during the most troubling of times.
Learn about what investor organizations are doing to support social entrepreneurs like SaCoDe, Dandelion Africa, and Onelamp. The African Visionary Fund will be joining the conversation to talk about their work in unleashing breakthrough impact by driving resources to high-impact African founders, offering unrestricted, unburdensome funding to African visionaries.
The virtual conference is hosted by the African Diaspora Network and the King Baudouin Foundation United States (KBFUS).
