While philanthropy is an integral part of African society, the study of philanthropy in Africa is only recently gaining traction. To help us understand the field better and generate new knowledge that allows us to strengthen its role and impact, TrustAfrica has compiled a database of literature from academic as well as other sources. You will find a range of topics on African giving – from legally structured entities to systems and traditions of solidarity – in English, French, Arabic and Portuguese. The database also includes literature that looks at the impact of external philanthropy on African development.
The African Giving Knowledge Base is an ongoing collaboration between TrustAfrica and IssueLab, a service of the Foundation Center. For more information on the database and for submission information, click here. Visit the African Giving Knowledge Base today.
