The event is the brainchild of Discover Africa, Founder and President Nii Narh Noye and Vice President Roxann Latimer. Mr. Noye of Ghana West Africa has lived in the US for over 12 years and was educated at USC speaks and teaches French and Spanish, began Discover Africa in 1986 in Ghana. “We have offices or representatives in several countries, Ghana, Senegal, Ivory Coast, Nigeria, Togo, France, London, all over the world and in many states of America. This symposium is being done in collaboration with Nation 2 Nation, a United Nations NetAid partner organization. We will be discussing business opportunities in Africa and welcome all that wish to attend.”
Roxann Latimer, Founder and President of Nation 2 Nation, became VP with Discover Africa this year. A native of California and a retired social worker in Los Angeles for over twenty years, Roxann is excited about the collaboration between their two organizations. “For the past few years we’ve donated medical supplies and equipment to clinics in West Africa and set up Committees in several countries. Working together as a team has enabled us to provide a continuum of care beyond our own independent measures. This training will provide our members and anyone who wishes to become a member with the tools to carry out the mission of our organizations.”
