The 2015 conference theme of "Generation Next: Young People Shaping Africa's Future" put the spotlight on youth as a lens to examine issues ranging from education to human rights to gender equity to the post-2015 agenda.   
Over 40 grantmaking organizations from seven countries were represented. 
Africa has the world's youngest population and the term "youth" covers a wide age range from 15 to 35.  While acknowledging the diversity among communities and across African countries, unemploymentaccess to education and health caresocial equality andengagement in the political process emerged from the discussions as cross-cutting concerns that must be addressed to leverage the potential of Africa's current and next generation. 
Philanthropy has a role to play and the conference ended with a challenge to funders to engage in the same intentional collaboration and partnership they so often encourage the organizations they support to do.

Stop The Bleeding Africa

Executive Summary 

Preamble

We, the participants, in the African Higher Education Summit on Revitalizing

Higher Education for Africa’s Future, gathered in Dakar, Senegal on March 10 -12, 2015, confirm our commitment to the objective of creating a continental multi-stakeholders’ platform to identify strategies for transforming the African higher education sector.

Stop The Bleeding Africa

L'Afrique perd des ressources financières massives, environ 50 milliards de dollars chaque année, du fait des activités illicites de multinationales et de riches particuliers.Ces ressources, si elles étaient retenues sur le continent, pourraient être investies dans les secteurs productifs de son économie pour ôter la population croissante de l'Afrique du sous-développement et de la pauvreté.

This convening will review ICJ advocacy strategies by showcasing our partners’ accomplishments, identifying the challenges they face, and fine-tuning our engagements to add value to their work.

Résumé                     

En partenariat avec OSISA, TrustAfrica reçoit actuellement des propositions au titre du projet intitulé : « Mesure de l’étendue et de l’impact des Flux Financiers Illicites (FFI) dans les secteurs clés de l’économie de l’Afrique australe ». Ce projet concerne la problématique de l’existence de lacunes importantes en matière de connaissance des flux financiers illicites dans la sous-région. Plus particulièrement, il concerne l’absence de recherche approfondie, de données, et d’analyses sur les tendances, dynamiques, acteurs, canaux, et sur l’envergure et l’impact des flux financiers illicites dans la sous-région. L’objectif ultime du projet est d’étendre l’usage des  données, des connaissances et analyses disponibles aux décideurs et autres intervenants, et, ainsi, de préparer le terrain pour la création de communautés solidaires de praticiens qui sont en mesure de fournir des solutions efficaces pour endiguer les flux financiers illicites en Afrique australe. Ce projet se veut aussi une contribution au renforcement des capacités des chercheurs et intervenants politiques,  en plus de l’affinement des approches concernant l’étude de ce problème en Afrique australe.

L’objectif de cet appel à propositions est de solliciter de la part de diverses organisations, individus et/ ou consortiums, des études poussées concernant le transfert illicite de ressources dans les secteurs ci-après :

(1)  Agriculture

(2)  Exploitation minière

(3)  Faune et Tourisme

Graduating in africa

The beautiful city of Dakar is the political, commercial and cultural capital of Senegal. It is not only TrustAfrica’s headquarters, but also West Africa’s hub for NGOs and international agencies. To ensure Dakar remains a lovely place to be, something must be done to keep some of its neighbourhoods cleaner. This initiative is to create awareness among Dakar inhabitants, particularly the youth, and galvanize them to work for, and share the benefits of a cleaner Dakar.

Graduating in africa

Africa is on the verge of embracing an exciting new paradigm of higher education. It envisions a future of broad-based prosperity, and importantly, a century in which Africans define their own needs and ambitions. The new higher education paradigm strives for excellence across the disciplines—the humanities, mathematics, the sciences, technology—and gives strong emphasis to gender. We saw this paradigm emerge earlier this month at the continent-wide higher education summit in Dakar organized by TrustAfrica and our 12 partners. These stories capture some of the new thinking behind a future we will shape together.
