The Mastercard Foundation Fund for Rural Prosperity is hosting a final participant learning event for its participants on 22 February 2023 to celebrate the significant achievements of and share learnings from its exciting portfolio of participants. The full-day event will take place in Nairobi, Kenya.

The event will feature representatives from many participant companies working in Sub-Saharan Africa, as well as stakeholders from the Mastercard Foundation and the Fund management team that has overseen the Fund on its now eight-year journey.

Event Agenda

The agenda of the day is primarily to give participants an opportunity to present their insights on their journey with the Fund to an audience, and to provide an opportunity for their key learnings to be shared. The day also features speaking slots for the Foundation and Fund management team.

The day will be split into plenary sessions and independent presentation sessions to smaller audience segments.

Some participants have been invited to give short presentations on their journey with the Fund. These presentations may be shared on this platform in the near future, along with other content from the day. 

At the end of the day, a networking cocktail has been arranged to provide opportunities for networking among participants, the Foundation, and other Fund team partners.
