Global Philanthropy Project and our member fund UHAI EASHRI invite grantmakers invested in Africa’s LGBTI and sex worker human rights movements to save the dates for an Africa Donors Meeting, June 17-18, 2019, as a Pre-Conference to the 7th Changing Faces, Changing Spaces Conference (CFCS VII), June 19-21, 2019.
The CFCS VI Africa Donors Meeting in 2017 brought together 75 grantmakers from 35 organizations, representing a diversity of public and private foundations, individual and corporate funders, and government agencies, embassies, bilateral and multilateral agencies.
Changing Faces, Changing Spaces Conference (CFCS VII) is Africa’s largest convening of the continent’s LGBTI and sex worker movements and donors. CFCS provides for direct and active interaction among activists and funders allowing for mutual learning as part of wider advocacy to narrow the knowledge gap between those that resource African movements and those that do the work. More than 200 activists from across 30 African countries, and 75 donor representatives attended each of the last 2 editions.
2019 marks UHAI’s and GPP’s 10th anniversaries, since their establishment in 2009. Hence CFCS VII will provide a special moment for reflection and commitment.
