Critical Conversation: Solidarity in Funding Practice

After its final meeting for the year in October, our Board welcomed partners to engage in a dialogue with philanthropic organisations and embassies about supporting voice and agency. A lively debate with the 30+ participants was enriched with strong input from Vuyiswa Sidzumo from the Ford Foundation, Bheki Moyo from the Centre for African Philanthropy and Social Investment at Wits, and Zanele Makombe from ACT Ubumbano. There were some firm challenges put to funders to interrogate how their practice enhances or hinders solidarity with community struggles. We hope to have the video of the Conversation ready for public access in the next few weeks.
