OFN, CFED, SEEP, Net Impact, Slow Money, etc. I could probably spend all of my waking time at conferences. But, what’s the balance between doing one’s work and learning/sharing with others in the field? Certainly, you can’t just work in isolation. People need to learn from others, gain new perspectives of what is happening in the field, see old friends, prospect new clients,… Continue

This post is an exerpt from my post on Beyond Profit, where I am a guest blogger.
About four years ago I fell in love with Africa, specifically South Africa, after volunteering in a township called Umgababa, outside of Durban.

Thank you for the opportunity to communicate a matter that I consider to be important. I do understand that
the Commonwealth of Learning (COL) is populated by current and former colonies and as an American do
think that we have been overlooked. We are a former colony and are proud of that fact. That can be taken

The FEF, launched its round 2 funding window at the Making Finance Work for Africa conference in Accra last week. The FEF was afforded a plenary session to open round 2; over 280 participants were present.
Corin Mitchell is the Africa Director of the FEF, based in Johannesburg South Africa.
I would be very curious to get this community's perspective on the role of corporate social responsibility, particularly by corporate sponsors, and the upcoming World Cup in South Africa.
It's the first time the world's most viewed event is being hosted in Africa and I believe that governments and businesses have a greater responsibility to ensure that the games leave a lasting social and economic legacy for South Africa and the region.
