NEPAD ACKNOWLEDGEMENT - ALMOST
(All)

**********************************

The FOUNDATION FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF AFRICA proudly presents you with the following information that may add value to Africa's development. Please direct any correspondence to: info@isupportafrica.com


NEPAD ACKNOWLEDGEMENT - ALMOST

A new, reassuring, relationship almost developed between the Foundation for the Development of Africa (FDA) and the Gender and Civil Society Organisations Sector of the NEPAD Secretariat. This new 'NEPAD' (partnership) was initiated by Ms Litha MUSYIMI-OGANA from the NEPAD Secretariat, who called for a meeting to identify ways of working together to the benefit of Africa.

At this pleasant meeting and fruitful interaction I was requested to submit a list of initiatives implemented and supported by the Foundation for the Development of Africa. It is therefore fitting to provide you with this list, as many of you may wish to participate in some of these initiatives:

HOW CAN I SUPPORT AFRICA CAMPAIGN

Sadly this 'partnership' failed to materialize due to lack of 'implementation from NEPAD Secretariat - We submitted no less than 6 reminders and requests for action to NEPAD Secretariat - we never even received an acknowledgment of receipt.

Dear Peter,
That is a great and potentially hugely beneficial development.
It is difficult to operate without official recognition and blessing.
All success with your endeavors.
All best,
Axel
