Play • 15 min

Niamani Mutima hosts this monthly audio newsletter produced by the ,Africa Grantmakers’ Affinity Group (AGAG) . Over the past two decades AGAG has brought together funders, civil society leaders, scholars, and practitioners to learn from each other and build an informed, engaged, and connected network. Through this audio newsletter we share information about their work.

In this episode, we highlight the
Research and Resources on COVID-19 in Africa on our website that includes reports on how civil society organizations in different regions are being affected by the pandemic. We discuss what funders shared at the beginning of the pandemic during the  “Discussion Series: Navigating the Impact of COVID-19" about taking a more flexible approach to reporting requirements and how funds were used.  An excerpt from our “Conversations With” series episode about  philanthropy’s response in South Africa that questions if South African funders will continue to be flexible. We conclude with highlights from the report,  “Conversations With Africa Grantmakers: Reflections on Navigating Roles and Relationships” that interviewed grantmakers about their career paths, lessons learned, and how they manage the different roles and relationships that are part of the grantmaking process.

“No matter why you listen, you’re sure to become more informed”.
