EOC in the African context

The three-day international conference brought together participants from 12 African countries, the US, Europe and Asia.

The speakers were composed of a rich mix of professors from the Catholic University of Eastern Africa, esteemed representatives of African enterprises like Equity Bank and Safaricom, and members of the Economy of Communion's (EOC) International Commission. The presentations included an introduction to the EOC, existing EOC businesses, how EOC differentiates from Corporate Social Responsibility and a comprehensive look at the African reality: the socio-economic and cultural challenges it faces today and what has proven successful as development tools, including microcredit. 

The audience actively participated by posing relevant questions and offering their own observations throughout the whole conference.
