In 2014 WINGS, in partnership with Southern Africa Trust and Southern Africa Community Grantmakers Leadership Forum, hosted a Peer Learning Event (PLE) on local cultures of giving in Johannesburg in November. The main purpose of the event was to bring awareness of the need to reveal trends and document stories from all regions in the effort of creating a truly global philanthropy enriched with diversity.
Following up on meeting resolutions, Shelagh Gastrow (Inyathelo) has compiled a list of resources on philanthropy in Africa. Links to the resources are now included in the downloadable Local Cultures of Giving PLE report.
To expand the scope of the PLE, WINGS members are encouraged to share ideas on the newly shared resources in our online Local Cultures of Giving forum.
