Hi friends, 
We're hosting our graduate and undergraduate members for a discussion on leadership in Africa and all that pertains to it. 

This will be a self-moderated conversation and we hope to hear views from as diverse an audience as it can get. 

As always, we got you covered with refreshments. 
Let's show up this Friday and have an engaging discussion.

Hi, SAIP is hosting a valentine themed get together on Saturday. It's all about getting to know other members better through ice breakers such as speed dating and music. A zena zena valentine translates to a chill valentine in Amharic.

SAIP presents our first African forum. A discussion moderated by or guest, Dr. Cheikh Babou. He'll give a short talk before opening up the floor for discussion and questions. This should be an interesting conversation as we discuss how far we've come and the future of Africa and Africans. We'd love to hear your perspective and those of your friends. As always, all are welcome.
