Can the new African foundations level the playing field?”

This article attempts to answer three related questions. The first is whether new African philanthropic foundations such as TrustAfrica and the AfricanWomen’s Development Fund (AWDF) have the clout needed to raisemoney fromthe North and use it on their own terms to set their own development agenda.

The second relates to dependency, which has characterized relations between the non-profit sector and its donors, particularly fromthe North.
