Day 9: Africa Land of Opportunities

Today was Africa Land of Opportunities day. On this day the African Leadership Academy opens its doors to outside visitors and spends the day discussing a relevant topic for progress in Africa.

This year’s topic was Women Rising. The day begun with music and dance performances followed by a panel of African women entrepreneurs who shared their views about the needs of women in Africa. Then everyone attended different workshops covering important topics about the reality of African women. The workshop topics ranged from health and education to entrepreneurship and involvement in sciences. Our own Melissa Arnold and Santiago Enrique ran a workshop about how girls learn.

The whole day was a happy celebration and a recognition of the potential of this continent. Here are some photos shared by the girls.
