Scandinavian African Foundation for Growth initiative (SAFG) convenes business and development actors to drive action through its unique model. Rather than directly implementing projects, SAFG facilitates action by helping members connect, collaborate, and make effective and measurable Commitments to Action.
THE SAFG MODEL DRIVES ACTION AMONG ITS MEMBERS IN THE FOLLOWING FOUR WAYS:
In the SAFG community, today's foremost thinkers meet tomorrow's groundbreaking solutions. Thought business and development actors and visionaries push the conversation forward, inspiring all members to be creative and innovative in their collective action.
The diverse SAFG membership offers a unique opportunity to interact with individuals across multiple sectors and industries. Members include CEOs of the the two regions largest companies, leading NGOs and foundations, government representatives, and prominent philanthropists.
At SAFG, knowledge building creates the foundation for informed action. Industry leaders analyze their most effective programs, fresh voices put forth innovative approaches, and established experts debate different interventions. Members provide each other with a constant flow of new solutions and lessons learned.
Spurred by a collective sense of urgency and shared responsibility, SAFG members collaborate to best leverage their resources and expertise. Some partnerships develop organically from networking, while others grow through issue-specific member gatherings or SAFG staff facilitation.
COMMITMENTS TO ACTION
SAFG member commitments represent bold new ways to address business and development challenges – implemented through new methods of partnership and designed to maximize impact. Commitments can be small or large, global or local. No matter the size or scope, commitments help SAFG members translate practical goals into meaningful and measurable results. To support the development of commitments among members, SAFG facilitates conversations, provides opportunities to identify commitment partners, showcases the actions taken by commitment-makers, and communicates the results of the work.
