The year 2020 has been an eventful year, especially with the novel COVID-19 global health pandemic leading to a huge loss of life and profound disruptions, and the severe social and economic crises that came with it.

As 2020 is gradually rolling to an end, one lesson it leaves behind is the need for us to be responsible citizens, not only of our nations, but also of Mother Earth, and be responsive to the needs of others. This is what we strive to do at TrustAfrica. We are driven by the need to make our society better, “leaving nobody behind”. To this end, we have continued to partner with other development stakeholders to deepen inclusive development on the continent. Among other initiatives, in collaboration with Southern Africa Trust and the African Philanthropy Network, we launched “Community Immunity”, which is an initiative designed to draw attention to, support and work with the vulnerable and marginalized communities that are more exposed to the pandemic, yet not sufficiently catered for in most of the general responses to the widespread challenges arising from Covid-19.

The transition to a better, post-COVID-19 society will be long. We must build forward better, and make post-COVID-19 transition part of the structural transformation and the building of the Africa we want, in the world we want. We wish you Happy Holidays, and a very Happy and Prosperous New year, 2021.

Immunity Through Unity

Our latest Pan-African collaboration is the Community Immunity Initiative which is born of the core values of Ubuntu that we hold so dearly at TrustAfrica. The pandemic has reminded us that nobody is safe until everybody is safe. So in close collaboration with our partners, Southern African Trust and African Philanthropy Network, we are working on a global campaign to mobilise support for communities most at risk of being left behind. Please join us in ensuring that the most vulnerable are supported and no one has to be left behind today and in the future.

The Civil Society Hub (CSOHUB-Africa), a foremost online community of nonprofit practitioners – individual and organizations, aware of the bigger challenges, proposed a Tweet Chat for its members on concrete ways that they can cope with the Covid19 challenge. The Chat addressed the following issues: managing existing grants, HR issues, finance and contracts issues and managing the working from home nuances.

Background
From its conception as a Tribunal to its current form as a Community Court, the ECOWAS Court ofJustice (ECCJ) stands as one of the most transformed international courts in terms of functions,structure, and processes

Established under Article 6 and 15 of the Revised Treaty of Economic Community of West African States, (“ECOWAS”); the ECCJ – the sole judicial organ of the community; initially had a very limited mandate to settle disputes arising out of the treaty as they related to states and institutions of the commission. However, the ECCJ has since evolved from an inter-governmental dispute settlement mechanism into a community court with an expanded mandate and jurisdiction including; an Advisory jurisdiction, contentious jurisdiction, and competence in matters of adjudication.
