The 10th annual AISA GISS conference was held at the International School of Tanganyika (IST)., Dar-es-Salaam Tanzania. The event ran from the 16th to the 19th of January 2019 with the overall theme of “Toa Mkono”. In the local tongue of Swahili, this means “lend a hand” and links back to the core values behind the GISS summit. This connects to the concept of sharing ideas in order to better deal with the issues that are seen in the various international communities.

Along with this theme, there were 3 themes that were the focus over the course of the conference. The themes of Subiri (Wait), Tazama (Observe) and Badilisha (Change) were incorporated daily.

AISA GISS hosted 24 student-led workshop, 4 advisor sessions, 10 service day activities, 4 keynote speakers, 2 change makers panels, and an artisan craft fair. These activities were spread out over the duration of the 3 days.
