Sullivan Foundation Africa Summit Set for July in Nigeria

January 22, 2003

A sixth conference to bring together American and African leaders to discuss ways to improve life on the continent is being planned for Abuja, Nigeria, in July. The five-day summit will focus on continuing development efforts in sub-Saharan Africa, including business, trade and investment, education and HIV/AIDS. The summit is sponsored by the Leon H. Sullivan Foundation, which promotes self-help and was founded to honor the late civil rights pioneer and international humanitarian. The meetings have sparked the creation of programs to train African teachers, bankers and doctors. A partnership with the World Bank also has taught more than 1 million Africans to use bank-built tube wells that provide clean water and irrigation, said Hope Sullivan, the foundation's president and chief executive officer, and daughter of Leon Sullivan.
