Equitable Development: We are tackling a multiplicity of issues including natural resource governance and development finance; climate justice and, food sovereignty; as well as the fourth industrial revolution and the future of work – all with a view to create conditions for inclusive, sustainable and dignified development on the continent.
Democratic Governance: We are working to ensure that those who hold power are answerable to citizens and that the rule of law prevails. To this end, our priorities include strengthening citizens movements to push back against the closure of civic space and the generalized clampdown on human rights; and supporting civil society working to enhance the transparency and accountability of elections; as well as working to end impunity and ensure international justice for atrocity crimes.
African Philanthropy: As a founding member of the African Philanthropy Network and other affinity groups, we will continue with work to foster an enabling environment and a stronger knowledge base and a vibrant community of practice for African philanthropy; promoting more African giving and harnessing home-grown resources for development.
Equally, we are prioritizing building TrustAfrica into a Resilient Institution for the ages. COVID-19 has highlighted the importance of proximate actors in responding to continental challenges, and as TrustAfrica we will work diligently in this period to strengthen institutional resilience and agility to enhance its ability to deliver on our mission in partnership with local actors across the continent.
