"In the initial stages of planning for the conference, Ghana was one of the top 3 locations. When the president of Ghana, Nana Akufo-Addo, announced that 2019 would be the "Year of Return" it became the obvious choice. A call to return to the motherland. After my first trip in 2012, I fell in love with Ghana and I wanted my team to experience what I felt whilst connecting with other like-minded individuals.
Fast forward to the present day, a successful conference that brought together a diverse group of black-led NGOs and impactful individuals from across Africa and the wider diaspora; connecting, collaborating and unifying, while gaining to tools to become more impactful in their work across the globe.
This conference will always hold a special place in my heart being the first. Now we go back to the drawing board and plan for the next."

The main panel provided us with key insights on philanthropy, digital finance, education, and communication while the workshops were a treasure chest of ideas being swapped from different perspectives.
