From August 4th-6th, 40 heads of state from across Africa met in Washington DC for the Africa Leaders Summit, in which meetings and events focused on the economic importance of the continent. Here, Partners Board Member Amb. Mark Bellamy discusses the risks of political violence in the region amidst such economic growth.
Partners would like to extend our deepest sympathies to the family and friends of Ambassador Samuel W. Lewis. Sam served on our board for 14 years and was a big part of our growth and success. He was always a voice for caution and realism and made us think about our work and programs critically. He will be missed greatly.
