BlueOrchard webinar – The Raising Gap in Education in Africa

We are pleased to invite you to our webinar “The Raising Gap in Education in Africa” on Wednesday, 30 June 2021 at 11:00 AM CEST.

According to the latest figures of the United Nations, more than 200 million children will still be out of school in 2030, and Covid-19 has further exacerbated the situation. Sub-Saharan Africa is among the regions with the highest rate of education exclusion. Affordable and high-quality education is paramount to close the education gap and enable increased quality of life as well as economic growth. Impact investing plays a pivotal role by financing affordable private schools and creating educational opportunities for the next generation. Bridging the education gap has been a key topic for BlueOrchard for years.

Our education expert panel will comprise Letshego Kenya – a leading Kenyan financial institution, a longstanding school client from Letshego, and CDC – the UK development finance institution which has been at the forefront of providing access to affordable education. Our local team in Nairobi will moderate the session.
