Project Africa is a one-day conference organized by the African Student Association which focuses on using science, technology, entrepreneurship along with innovative and ingenious ideas to promote African development. This year our theme, “Redefining Our Purpose”, strives to open the dialogue on how we all can create a better future for our mother continent by examining three major categories: health, women, and education.
