The ASAF interim board met for the first time in Dakar, Senegal from 4th - 6th of March 2022. From Cameroon, Ethiopia, Algeria, Ghana and also Morocco, the board members are meeting in the capital of Senegal to discuss the future of ASAF.
Before the beginning of the first meeting of the interim board a pilot project took place at Cheikh Anta Diop University, which opened the door for the ASAF members to talk about their community, to approach the Senegalese public, and thus make the geographical space of ASAF larger than before.

As we often say, ASAF is not just for business, but for cultural things too. It's a mix between the professional and the culturally diverse. The last day remains the proof of this principle. Before everyone left the hotel and returned home, our service-provider offered the members a visit to the museum of the city of Dakar after we had discovered more or less the city through the previous trips.
