Stop The Bleeding Africa

Stop the Bleeding, an african Campaign to Curb Illicit Financial Flows from Africa

Africa loose massive financial resources, about U$$50 billion each year through Illicit activities of multinational companies and rich individuals. These resources, if retained in the continent could be invested in productive sectors of these economies to lift the Africa's growing population from under-development and poverty.

This convening will review ICJ advocacy strategies by showcasing our partners’ accomplishments, identifying the challenges they face, and fine-tuning our engagements to add value to their work.

Summary

TrustAfrica, in partnership with Open Society Initiative of Southern Africa (OSISA), is currently accepting proposals under the auspices of the “Assessing the extent and impact of illicit financial flows in key economic sectors in Southern Africa” project. The project seeks to address the problem of substantial knowledge gaps on illicit financial flows in Southern Africa. It specifically covers the lack of in-depth sectorial research, data and analysis on the patterns, dynamics, actors, channels, magnitude, and development impacts of illicit financial flows in the sub-region. The ultimate goal of the project is to expand the data, knowledge and analysis available to advocates and policymakers, and thereby prepare the ground for synergy-based communities of practice that can provide effective responses to curb illicit financial flows from Southern Africa. The initiative also seeks to contribute to strengthening the capacity of researchers and policy advocates. The project will also contribute to sharpening the methodologies in the study of illicit financial flows in Southern Africa.

The purpose of this Call for Proposal (CFP) is to solicit proposals from various organizations, individuals and/or consortiums to undertake in-depth research studies on how resources are being illicitly transferred in the following sectors:

1)    Agriculture

2)    Mining

3)    Wildlife and Tourism

Graduating in africa

The beautiful city of Dakar is the political, commercial and cultural capital of Senegal. It is not only TrustAfrica’s headquarters, but also West Africa’s hub for NGOs and international agencies. To ensure Dakar remains a lovely place to be, something must be done to keep some of its neighbourhoods cleaner. This initiative is to create awareness among Dakar inhabitants, particularly the youth, and galvanize them to work for, and share the benefits of a cleaner Dakar.

Graduating in africa

Africa is on the verge of embracing an exciting new paradigm of higher education. It envisions a future of broad-based prosperity, and importantly, a century in which Africans define their own needs and ambitions. The new higher education paradigm strives for excellence across the disciplines—the humanities, mathematics, the sciences, technology—and gives strong emphasis to gender. We saw this paradigm emerge earlier this month at the continent-wide higher education summit in Dakar organized by TrustAfrica and our 12 partners. These stories capture some of the new thinking behind a future we will shape together.
