  • Centering pan-African philanthropies amid the shifting global socio-political and economic order

    There is no question that we are living in unprecedented times. The past three years, marked by the onset of Covid-19, were an era on their own. While a global challenge, the notion of the pandemic as the “great equaliser” was a complete myth; indeed, it reinforced and deepened the existing systemic structures of violence and injustice, with disproportionate impacts on women, gender diverse persons, persons with disabilities, informal workers and people of colour. 

  • Working towards a West African philanthropy support ecosystem

    The African landscape of philanthropy is embedded in a particularly traditional historical context. In West Africa, in addition to tradition, the religious dimension of philanthropy is important in the sense that a very large proportion of practices are motivated by beliefs due to membership in a religious community.

You can create some beautiful content by using some simple HTML elements. The Warp theme framework offers some neat styles for all HTML elements and a great set of CSS classes to style your content. Basic HTML is very easy to learn and this small guide shows you how to use all styles provided by the Warp framework.

Basic HTML Elements

Quotations and Code

Inline quotations can be defined by using the <q> element.

The <blockquote> element defines a long quotation which also creates a new block by inserting white space before and after the blockquote element.

To define a short inline computer code use the <code> element. For a larger code snippet use the <pre> element which defines preformatted text. It creates a new text block which preserves both spaces and line breaks.

pre {
    margin: 15px 0;
    padding: 10px;
    font-family: "Courier New", Courier, monospace;
    font-size: 12px;
    line-height: 18px;
    white-space: pre-wrap;
}

Use the <small> element for side comments and small print.
