Panel/Speaker & Roundtables: Bridges to Africa

Vision:  Raise awareness of issues in Sub-Saharan Africa such as educational opportunity and HIV/AIDS.

Community Need:  The Pittsburgh community may not be aware of issues in Sub-Saharan Africa and local organizations that address such issues.

Impact:  The CEE team encouraged community involvement and awareness by hosting an evening of activities including a keynote speaker, eight interactive stations, and resources to local organizations, all focusing on issues in Sub-Saharan Africa.
