  • Re-Imagining Pan-African and Feminist Philanthropies Indaba 2023 kicks off in Naivasha, Kenya

    The world is on fire. There is no more denying what we are seeing and what we are experiencing. Whether we are reeling from the impact of the climate crisis in Brazil, or the compounded effects of systemic racism against people of African descent and indigenous, people in the United States, or whether the Ukraine-Russia crisis and the rise in the military complex is affecting the price of bread for low-income families in Africa. The urgency of this global moment calls for urgency in how we walk alongside and support communities most at risk from the multiplicity of crises we are facing. Women and communities of African descent are increasingly at the forefront of bearing the brunt of these crises. Within this context, how then can a philanthropic system that is socially distanced from lived realities be reimagined in a way that inspires society out of crisis at this moment?

  • Daring to invent the future: African social movements converging for change

    As the world grapples with the critical task of “building forward better” in the wake of COVID-19 and the current geo-political crises, social movements around the world are actively exploring alternative ways of doing (and being) in relation to social, political, environmental, and economic rights. In Africa, for example, activists and social movements from 30 different African countries recently gathered in Johannesburg, South Africa for the 2022 “African Social Movement Baraza”....

  • Centering pan-African philanthropies amid the shifting global socio-political and economic order

    There is no question that we are living in unprecedented times. The past three years, marked by the onset of Covid-19, were an era on their own. While a global challenge, the notion of the pandemic as the “great equaliser” was a complete myth; indeed, it reinforced and deepened the existing systemic structures of violence and injustice, with disproportionate impacts on women, gender diverse persons, persons with disabilities, informal workers and people of colour. 

  • Working towards a West African philanthropy support ecosystem

    The African landscape of philanthropy is embedded in a particularly traditional historical context. In West Africa, in addition to tradition, the religious dimension of philanthropy is important in the sense that a very large proportion of practices are motivated by beliefs due to membership in a religious community.
