Philanthropy for Africa, by AWDF purple

The dominant conversations around philanthropy in Africa tend to focus on Western giving to the continent. These narratives miss the incredible impact that Africans and African-descended people around the world have made and are continuing to make on the continent. AWDF USA wants to highlight and cultivate the role that young Africans throughout the diaspora are playing in philanthropy, on the continent and in the diaspora 
This task is accomplished in a number of ways: 

1. Amplifying and sharing information about initiatives in Africa-focused philanthropy throughout the diaspora. 

2. Using events like our WoMentoring and Afri-Women Hangouts to discuss, encourage, and educate younger women about the importance of diasporic philanthropy.
