On July 2-3, 2013, the Bush Institute will host the African First Ladies Summit, “Investing in Women: Strengthening Africa,” in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania.

With support from ExxonMobil, the summit will bring together African First Ladies, government officials, private organizations, NGOs and academics to discuss best practices that can reap sustainable, replicable results, benefit women and strengthen society.

Many African countries are committed to introducing critical interventions in education, health and economic opportunity led by First Ladies that will benefit women and strengthen society. Investing in women results in better outcomes for entire families, communities and nations.

Featuring keynote addresses by President and Mrs. Bush, the summit will include First Lady announcements and commitments and the opportunity to learn from experts in the fields of education, health and economic empowerment. It will spotlight success stories and provide follow-up services.
