Strengthen the West African Philanthropy Support Ecosystem

January 24th, 2023

After a two-days workshop at Le Niambour Hotel, Dakar, TrustAfrica and WINGS, in partnership with African Philanthropy Forum (APF), the African Philanthropy Network (APN), Center for African Philanthropy and Social Investment (CAPSI) at Wits Business School, Global Fund for Community Foundation (GFCF), and African Venture Philanthropy Alliance (AVPA), have resolved to strengthen the philanthropy support ecosystem in West Africa. 

The workshop, which was held from 28 to 29 September 2022, on the theme: “Strengthening the West African Philanthropy Support Ecosystem” drew participants from more than 30 organisations and eight different countries.  One of the outcomes of this convening was the decision to set up a network of organizations for more effective philanthropy in West Africa, as part of wider efforts to address the endemic lack of access to essential resources, which curtails development in the sub-region.
