What is our focus this year?
It is no secret that Africa has one of the fastest growing populations in the world. In the same vein, more than 60% of the continent’s population is below 25 years old and the continent’s birth rates remain one of the highest in the world. It is said that by 2050, Africa’s current population of one billion would have more than doubled to 2.3 billion. This trend obviously shows an explosive demand for education now and in the future which many governments across Africa cannot meet without the private intervention. Consequently, the need for increase in private investment to build a sustainable education industry that we all can be proud of in Africa, has never been this urgent. At this year’s edition of the Business of Education Summit, we will sufficiently discuss how we can build a sustainable education business in Africa.
