About the Roundtable:
Livestreamed from the Vatican’s Dicastery for Promoting Integral Human Development media room.
Impact!Africa Consortium, in partnership with the United for Regeneration alliance & action initiative that was founded by NOW Partners, and in collaboration with the Vatican COVID-19 Commission, is pleased to invite you to the first 2021 High-Level Roundtable on “Rethinking the role of social innovations and systems change in scaling up access to inclusive financial services for Africa’s youth and women (the missing middle).”
This Roundtable focuses on building the capacity of youth and women to access financial products, capacity and opportunity development, and will be followed by three additional action-oriented events that culminate in the February 2022 launch of an action initiative that has the goal to raise 100 million dollars that will empower millions of youth and female entrepreneurs across Africa.
