APN is a continent-wide network of organizations and individuals in Africa and its diaspora who promote the culture of philanthropic giving as a driver for social and structural change. It is a space for African institutions to interrogate and intervene in the power dynamics that shape how resource mobilization, distribution and spending impact the possibilities of transformative change in Africa. APN members include grantmaking organizations (both foundations and funds), CSOs, academic and research institutions, as well as philanthropy infrastructure support organizations.

2022 قمة الشباب APN

This indeed set the tone for the Summit which took place on the 10th of November at the Imperial Resort Beach Hotel in Entebbe Uganda, in conjunction with the 2022 APN Assembly which ran from the 8th – 9th of November 2022. From the onset of the 2022 Summit, Dr. Stigmata Tenga, Executive Director of the APN inspired the young leaders by reminding them of the power they hold, and why they should utilize the Summit to engage and advance discussions around African Youth Philanthropy. The Summit debuted in 2021 and was themed: Youth Philanthropy and Power. It was the first of its kind in the African Philanthropy development movement and was held in November 2021 virtually.

During this Summit, youth leaders celebrated their contribution to transforming communities and re-engineering the future of African philanthropy into one that is aligned with the involvement of young people’s leadership, talents, innovation and creativity.

شروط المراجع الخاصة بالاستشارة لكتابة تقرير عن دراسة المرأة والفلسفة في إفريقيا

 

  1. مقدمة

The Africa Philanthropy Network (APN) brings together organization and individual members serving different forms of philanthropy in Africa. Together, APN members represent grantmakers, funds, community foundations, philanthropy support networks, research & academic institutions and other philanthropy support organizations (PSOs) in more than 48 African countries. Within the philanthropy landscape, APN envisions a strong and effective philanthropic community, striving to build equitable and just societies in Africa. Our priorities are defined by values that African philanthropy, the solidarity and inclusiveness.  APN’s mission is to reclaim the power and elevate practices of African philanthropy. We focus more explicitly towards the multi-stakeholder end of the philanthropy spectrum, with emphasis on African models of philanthropy as an act of participation, dissent, empathy, solidarity, and as a development tool.  In short “philanthropy of the people and their community”.

 

  1. Background

Women in philanthropy represents a key feature of African philanthropy in that they go beyond financial help. They are often also willing to offer their time and expertise. In Women and Philanthropy: inspiring women, inspired giving (Philanthropy UK, 2008) it is also documented that their impact in philanthropy also typically differs from that of their male counterparts due to their willingness to take on ‘harder’ issues; those that are less likely to be quantifiable for instance, or those that affect individuals at the margins of society.

 

Africa has always had a strong tradition of philanthropy marked by the solidarity and desire to share and care for one another. These are often found in women’s philanthropic giving and that has been ignored, marginalised or forgotten. The growing involvement and influence of women in philanthropy has gone largely unrecognized.  The impact of women philanthropic giving models is under represented in statistics, which reflect how wealth is attributed in African communities. Research has revealed that an ever-increasing number of women in rural and urban areas engage with different forms of philanthropy.  But what is the impact? It still remains unclear, what the needs, challenges they encounter and opportunities to improve the operating and policy environment for women’s philanthropy?

 

In 2022, APN conducted a study on Women and Philanthropy in six (6) countries including Burkina Faso, Ethiopia Ghana, Kenya, Mozambique, and Uganda. The study sought to unlock the potential of women and philanthropy in those countries. Women are donors and philanthropists, but, traditional development activities largely ignore their philanthropic giving interests and habits. Their participation is minimal and hardly documented. Women are now taking up leadership roles and changing the face of traditional philanthropic giving in these countries as is in other African countries.
