Foundation Holds Dialogue On Innovation In National Development

(AFRICAN EXAMINER) – Aspire Coronation Trust (ACT), a grant making non-profit organization, has announced the hosting of the 5th edition of its annual Breakfast Dialogue on the role of innovation in national development.

Established in 2016 to support local, national and regional non-profit organizations working to address challenges and associated vulnerabilities across the African Continent, ACT seeks to promote broad based participation/partnership with other institution and/or donor organizations aimed at building sustainable communities and to provide innovative solutions to social, economic and environmental challenges.

The organization facilitates learning and growth across the social enterprise value chain as well as host communities, promotes social impact initiatives through health, entrepreneurship, environment and leadership. It also engages stakeholders who proffer solutions to challenges associated with host communities across its focus areas.

In addition, ACT creates a broad based partnership with other institutions or donor organizations aimed at building sustainable communities. It equally empowers and supports nonprofit organizations in the region to build capacity, thereby catalyzing socio economic development across all areas of interest.

The ACT Foundation Breakfast Dialogue is organised to drive multilateral collaboration among diverse stakeholders toward addressing Africa’s most critical social and economic issues.

This year’s virtual edition of the Dialogue, with the theme, “Reimagining the Future of Development: Learn, Adjust, Thrive!”, will be holding on the 14th and 15th of September.

The event, according to a statement on Friday, is geared to spur innovative strategies and encourage multisectoral collaboration across Africa that can alleviate some of the biggest societal problems such as poverty, inequality, and unemployment.

Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the ACT Foundation, Osayi Alile, said the event will be a springboard for long-term strategies toward building more resilient and prosperous communities and institutions across Africa.

“In terms of development, we must always acknowledge the existence of societal deficits, and we cannot dismiss the urge for rapid progress; otherwise, we risk portraying an image of a nation and worse still, a planet beyond saving. This is why, in our quest for a better Africa, we must prioritize innovation and collaboration. In a sense, at this event, we are lifting our hands and saying yes to Africa’s social development” she added.
