TrustAfrica is honoured to welcome you to this inaugural continent summit. We are equally humbled by the faith and the responsibility that has placed upon us, by our partners and indeed the government of Senegal, to deliver a globally relevant event that will map the way forward for the higher education sector.

Higher education is a critical component to continental development in a knowledge economy. The needs for ordinary citizens to function and make a contribution, both to their personal economy and that of their communities and nations, is constantly escalating with numerous innovations coming to the fore, leading to the challenges of unemployment and un-employability that we are currently faced with.

The task is not out of reach. A platform such as this summit is certainly a first step in bringing together all respective stakeholders, to pull together and start the process of addressing these challenges by laying the foundations for a movement, which will promote greater social and economic development across Africa.

We look forward to your invigorated participation and contribution to this worthy matter.

Yours faithfully,
Tendai Murisa
