AFFORD attended the Royal African Society Autumn Reception at the British Academy launching the official patronage of H.R.H. The Duke of Cambridge on Wednesday 12th September 2018. Guests at the reception included various experts in the field of business, academia, the arts and education in Africa and the diaspora.
The Duke of Cambridge, in his speech, mentioned the importance of the diaspora as a bridge between Britain and Africa and also the need to focus on job creation, enterprise, investment and new technology to drive Africa’s development. We were pleased to see that his vision supports the current focus of AFFORD’s work.
