ACT Afrique Group is a pan-African consulting firm with over 40 clients and partners amongst governments, multilateral organisations, African societies, non-profit organisations, African and international foundations. This includes the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, for whom ACT hosted the annual grantee meeting in June 2018. Lynette was specially invited to this event, where she was able to build networks with revolutionary Senegalese organisations. This includes the human rights organisation Tostan, who are providing community empowerment and human rights training to Elimu from their centre in Thies, Senegal.
Lynette also worked with ACT to expand their Dakar Business Hub (DBH) to other African cities, including Abidjan (Cote d’Ivoire) and Kampala (Uganda). DBH reflects ACT’s mission to invest in the future of Africa, by supporting young entrepreneurs to address the socio-economic issues related to Africa’s development. With a solid foundation of partnerships, Elimu’s work with ACT is developing a pan-African platform for ambitious youth to create the Africa we all want to see.
