7th East African Philanthropy Conference

Our programs Director, Briggs Bomba moderated a session at the 7th East African Philanthropy Conference on 8 September 2021, in an exciting session which had a strong clarion call for big business, philanthropy, and Pan-Africans at large to move  “beyond our egos, logos & silos to converge for impact in Africa!” This was the call made  by Arif  Neky, Senior Advisor for UN Strategic Partnerships and Coordinator of the SDG Partnership Platform (SDGPP) as part of the Ensuring Relevance Session under the theme: “Stretching the Band, Failing Forward for Philanthropy to SOAR.”  The calls for philanthropy to assume the lead beyond emergencies and towards social development given its catalytic capability was echoed throughout the three-day Conference.  The energy around private sector  finding its advocacy role through philanthropy was electric and indicative of the possibilities for more coherent African-financed development and accountability.
