We helped SOS SAHEL set up a number of celebratory events in Senegal, culminating in an Africa Day celebration in May 2017:
- An intimate VIP dinner in Dakar at the Residence of the Consul of France, where we presented SOS SAHEL to a select group of corporate CEOs based in Dakar, from which we were able to secure sponsors for the May fundraising gala.
- Logistics and communications leading up to the Africa Day celebration including coordination with a PR agency
- A gala on May 24th 2017 at the Pullman Teranga Hotel in Dakar for a major fundraising campaign kickoff, attended by more than 250 guests. The gala was sponsored by President Abdou Diouf and featured a number of Senegalese artists and visionaries. SOS SAHEL’s executives highlighted the success of the Food Security and Nutrition Initiative 2025, which launched in 2016.
- A workshop for the International Advisory Board, conducted by three field experts including a UN ambassador, which encouraged reflection and debate on the issues of nutrition, sustainable energy and agroforestry.
