Baobab Summit 2022

The Baobab Summit is a gathering of the Mastercard Foundation Scholars Program, where our Scholars, Alumni and partners come together to connect, co-create, share, learn and reflect. In 2022, the Mastercard Foundation Scholars Program marks its decennial at the Baobab Summit: Scholars@10 Edition, in celebration of a Decade of Transformative Impact and Learning. As our first in-person convening in more than two years, we were very excited to reconnect.
