Coronavirus Response

We are committed to addressing a crisis that is reshaping both the world and the continent.

During the pandemic, Initiative For Africa joined forces with several global partners to create the #INFORAFRICA Alliance. Our organization spearheaded the #INFORAFRICA campaign which aimed to respond to the challenges facing Africa in the fight against the pandemic. We successfully engaged hundreds of opinion leaders, celebrities and other influential people to spread messages of prevention and solidarity across the continent, as well as to support initiatives that fight the disease, create a positive impact on local communities and contribute to resilience.
