In light of the Kenyan government's ban on international conferences due to the COVID-19 outbreak and in alignment with Humentum’s commitment to the health and safety of our event attendees, we recently postponed our in-person conference, OpEx East Africa, scheduled to take place later this month.

Instead, we are excited to announce that we will be offering this conference virtually June 1-5, now called OpEx Africa Online! We are already a leading provider of online learning, so this will be the first time we are taking that to the next level with an online conference, putting Africa at the forefront of these discussions and actions. By adopting this new format, we can launch a more inclusive conversation on some of the most critical issues facing the global development sector today.


This 5 day event will focus on The Spirit of Collective Action, because we are all better at our jobs when we learn from each other!


What should I expect? 

  • The same benefits of conference learning, available from the convenience of your laptop or mobile phone
  • Sessions will still have a localized, implementer focus, but with the new lens of our current reality, as well as sessions that address the challenges of COVID-19
  • An exciting mix of session formats to increase accessibility regardless of participants bandwidth and time zones
  • Opportunities for participation, sharing, and networking


Other benefits?

  • Save on travel
  • Revisit sessions after the conference ends
  • Register together and learn with colleagues
