ABOUT TRUSTAFRICA

TrustAfrica is an Africa-wide grantmaking foundation that is dedicated to fostering democratic governance and equitable development and works principally through collaboration and partnership with like-minded institutions and donors. It is incorporated in the United States as a 501(c)(3) taxexempt organization and has a location agreement with the government of Senegal. It has program presence in several African countries, maintains partnerships with several of Africa’s leading institutions, and has built a formidable reputation as a strategic grantmaker and an effective convener.

TrustAfrica has successfully completed its second training of media professionals in Banjul, The Gambia. The training programme which was held from 12-16 November 2018, was organised by TrustAfrica in partnership with The Netherland Embassy in Dakar. The aim of the meeting was to build the capacity of media personnel from a select number of West African countries to effectively report on and create constructive public debates on transitional justice developments and international criminal justice at the local, national, regional and international levels.

On behalf of TrustAfrica, Bethule Nyamambi was invited to contribute to the workshop convened by the African Risk Capacity Agency (ARC) and the African Union Department of Rural Economy and Agriculture (AU-DREA) held at the African Union, in Addis Ababa Ethiopia, on 26 and 27 November 2018.

L’exemple de la Suisse, Première Place des juridictions secrètes au monde

Les flux financiers illicites (FFI) ont une importance capitale sur le développement économique, social et même politique de l’Afrique. Ils contribuent à appauvrir le continent. Durant ces cinquante dernières années, l’Afrique a perdu plus de 1’000 milliards de dollars dû aux FFI.

Ladies and Gentlemen.

Welcome and thank you for being here. It is indeed heart-warming to see your strong interest in Transitional and International Criminal Justice issues which are at the very heart of our national discourse.

I would also like to appreciate TrustAfrica for organizing this important training. This is further evidence of the potential impact that could be generated by cooperation between States and Civil Society Organisations. I would most importantly like to thank, H.E Ambassador Theo Peter, for being present today and the Kingdom of the Netherlands for supporting this great initiative.

Today marks the beginning of a 5-day training on Transitional and International Criminal Justice for Journalists. Journalism has very often been referred to as the ‘Fourth Estate”, a recognition of the crucial role the media plays in a democratic society. The media throughout modern history has played a crucial role in upholding free speech and protecting democratic practices.

Ogo worked with Access Bank PLC in Lagos, Nigeria as a relationship officer and prior to joining TrustAfrica, she worked as a Research and Data Analyst for PIND Foundation. Ogo was part of the team that built the Niger Delta Development Map on the NDLink website which encourages partnerships in the Niger Delta. This online platform is currently one of the top online platforms in Nigeria. Ogo is very passionate about the development of the Niger Delta. She holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Geography and Planning from the University of Lagos, Nigeria and a Master of Arts in International Development from the University of Manchester, United Kingdom. She is also a proud member of Starting Now, which is a network of people who have committed to taking one step to change the world small at first perhaps, but consistent.

Globally, there are increased constraints on external funding and even criminalization of CSOs work. To counter this narrative, an emerging discourse around “participatory philanthropy” is being championed and innovated by civil society activists. Making the shift from external to local resources is one part of this.

In Sub Saharan Africa, the field of organized philanthropy and efforts to developed it has been dominated by Anglophone influences and practices and there has been far less investment in building local philanthropy in Francophone Africa.

Les mobilisations citoyennes dans plusieurs pays d’Afrique tels que le Burkina Faso, le Sénégal, le Zimbabwe, la République démocratique du Congo (RDC), la République du Congo, et Madagascar, pour n’en citer quelques-uns, ont révolutionné les processus démocratiques. Ces mouvements sociaux naissent souvent à la veille d’élections, en opposition aux dirigeants récalcitrants et à la volonté de certaines élites de se perpétuer au pouvoir.
