The Role of African Philanthropy in Development

On September 30, 2014, we will host a meeting in Dakar in honor of Akwasi Aidoo, our founder and director, as he prepares to leave TrustAfrica. The discussion will focus on a field of work to which he has made an immense contribution: the complementary notions of Africans taking charge of their own development and using African resources to transform systemic injustice. These notions are the backbone of TrustAfrica’s work on inclusive governance, equitable development and African philanthropy.

The discussion is entitled “15 years of Progress or Status Quo: Is African philanthropy contributing to a different development path?” It seeks to examine how (i) African philanthropy has addressed some of the most difficult challenges confronting the continent, and (ii) the hard questions that African philanthropy needs to be asking of itself in order to forge a different development path for the continent.

The meeting will be attended by a number of partners and staff. We plan to share highlights of the discussion.
