The African Philanthropy Network APN is the only continent-wide network of organizations and individuals in Africa and its diaspora that promotes the culture of philanthropic giving.
APN brings an ecosystem of philanthropy support institutions and civil society member organizations serving different forms of philanthropy currently in 48 African countries. Established in 2009, APN was conceived as a space for African institutions to interrogate and intervene in the power dynamics that shape how resource mobilization, distribution, and spending impact the possibilities of transformative change in Africa.
APN Assembly is the only conference that brings together individuals, organizations and networks working to strengthen the framework and effectiveness of African philanthropy as a force for common good.
Practitioners and partners developed new narratives for various kinds and cultures of philanthropy during the APN Assembly this year as they exchanged experiences, new knowledge, and collective views on the development of African philanthropy.
Below are a few memorable and relatable quotes from the occasion.
