An all-Africa higher education summit is to be held next year, bringing together stakeholders from across the continent to develop a charter and programme of action aimed at revitalising the sector. Another goal will be to build an advocacy alliance for higher education.
TrustAfrica and Amalion publishing are proud to launch the latest addition to the growing cadre of information on the field of African Philanthropy. The new book, Giving to Help, Helping to Give: The Context and Politics of African Philanthropy asks the question ‘When referring to ‘philanthropy’ in Africa, what comes to mind?’ While the West may have been first to institutionalize, legalize and define the terms of philanthropy, the practice of philanthropy has existed much, much longer in Africa. Sixteen chapters cover the four regions of Africa and each chapter provides a snapshot of philanthropy within a contextual, analytical, political and, at times, philosophical framework by noted researchers and practitioners from around the continent.
