“Within each of us there is strength, courage and the ability to take action.” ~ Elsa Juko-McDowell
IRVING, TEXAS, UNITED STATES, April 21, 2022 — Elsa Juko-McDowell, Chairwoman of the East Africa Chamber of Commerce (EACC) and East Africa Business Network (EABN) reminds us that: “The EACC was formally established as a 501(c)(6) not for profit Business League by business women and men who invest, trade, mentor and coach throughout the entire East African Community (EAC) and around the world to improve the lives and livelihoods of the many Diaspora communities. It has been a 17 year labor of love for the volunteer leadership team to “give back” from Africa to America and all points in-between, regardless of which diverse trade route around the world is taken.”
“Our work centers around introducing and empowering providers, suppliers, investors, manufactures, producers and all other roles in myriad supply chain communities across all industries to each other in order to build and expand sustainable trade with honor, dignity and education on ‘best practices’. We are elevating the arts through our focus on promoting culture, music, fashion, design, food and more. These global industries are showcased via our “Women Connecting Women” panel and our standalone red carpet and fashion show held during our annual trade conference. “We are reaching far beyond traditional chamber mandates to match the higher calling of Simply, Socially Good™, utilizing the EABN for all those wishing to join us in this fresh and expanded journey. Every individual matters and is valued in our global network.”
At a time when the East African Community and the world for that matter, need encouragement, hope and the tools to lift itself up and build a better tomorrow, the EABN is rapidly building socially good corporate and donor partnerships around the world. Weaving a cornucopia of African culture from food to music, education, fashion, entrepreneurship, technologies, energy, clean water, agriculture the EABN is committed to making a difference in the interest of life.

By 2013 annual trade and investment conferences began featuring global industry leaders highlighting sustainable solutions across major industries such as mobile finance, agriculture, manufacturing, telecommunications, energy, education, healthcare, women’s leadership, real estate and clean water.
