HOURS PLEDGED: 487
We are asking you all to JOIN OUR TEAM (meaning you create a personal profile to use to reach out to your contacts, asking that they donate to Summit IX through you, then helping you come to the Summit!) and/or Click DONATE right now, and help us host the largest gathering of the African Diaspora on the Continent of Africa! African Heads of State will attend, along with top Corporate leaders, all discussing ways to help Africa and empower her people.
WHY COME TO SUMMIT IX?!?
1.) VOICE YOUR OPINION. Be a part of the discussions and RESOLUTIONS being written on Infrastructure, Human Capital, the Environment, Corporate Social Responsibility (Global Sullivan Principles), and Tourism.
2.) CREATE CHANGE. Advocate during Plenary Sessions for the issues that most concern you; ensure that they are properly addressed by the high level officials in attendance.
3.) BUILD YOUR NETWORK. Meet corporate, governmental and academic leaders from around the world, along with friends of Africa with amazing stories to share regarding their commitment and attachment to Africa and the empowerment of her people.
4.) UPLIFT AFRICA. Take an active role in offering "a hand up, rather than a hand out" to the people of Africa through our concrete humanitarian initiatives.
5.) BEGIN YOUR LEGACY. Through the experiences of the Summit and interactions with other delegates and locals, you will all learn from each other, grow, and begin to truly impact the world - one person at a time.
"When I PLAN FOR THE FUTURE, my thoughts turn eventually to Africa. Somehow, I believe, slavery will be turned to the advantage of our future. The day will come when the continent from which my forefathers came, will blossom into a paradise. I have a feeling that my ultimate freedom and my ultimate security are tied to the DEVELOPMENT OF AFRICA."
-Reverend Leon H. Sullivan
