The SIFCA Foundation presents it Canteen project at the Choiseul Africa Business Forum

The SIFCA Foundation was present at the Choiseul Africa Business Forum, held on October 3rd and 4th, 2019 at the Meridien Hotel, located on the Promenade des Anglais in Nice, France.
An inescapable event dedicated to the development of business opportunities in Africa and with Africa, the main goal of this forum was to gather African decision makers to discuss current problematic such as education, infrastructure, private investment, modern art, sports…

This is why the SIFCA Foundation, represented by its General Secretary Mrs. Henriette Gomis Billon, was invited to discuss the stake of philanthropy in favor of African development and to share her experience with regards to rural development. Initiatives such as the Canteen Project were highly praised, especially by Mr. Philippe Douste-Blazy, United Nations Deputy Secretary General for the response they bring to African problematic such as child malnutrition, agricultural education and incentive to privilege crop growing.

The forum was also the occasion for Côte d’Ivoire, as honorary country, to discuss about the investment perspectives of the country with present economic actors.

SIFCA Foundation, let’s grow for the rural world !
