The conference, which focused on allocating funds to combat poverty, highlighted the critical role that leaders in politics, business, and philanthropy play in supporting healthcare and education in the world’s least developed countries.

Hugh Evans, CEO of Global Citizen, emphasised the importance of tackling these problems in light of today’s unstable international environment. During the conference, there were significant appeals for up to $6 billion to support African economic development and $600 million for an initiative led by the UN to support education in times of emergency.

Evans emphasized how crucial it is to give people concrete, doable steps they can take to make a positive difference in the world, especially in light of the increasing polarisation and hopelessness in society. He was speaking to The Associated Press at the New York conference.

The conference recruited celebrities like Hugh Jackman, Michelle Yeoh, and Anitta to help it achieve its goals. In addition, Vice President Kamala Harris’s husband, Doug Emhoff, made an unexpected appearance to talk about the significance of men’s participation in the fight against sexism and in support of reproductive rights.

Famous for her parts in “The Walking Dead” and “Black Panther,” Danai Gurira questioned the idea that African countries should remain dependent on aid from the West and emphasised the necessity for them to seek self-determination and control over their resources.

Former NFL player Osi Umenyiora highlighted the athletic potential of Africa and talked about the efforts being made to develop talent in the region through programmes such as the NFL academies.
