The consultation analysed the trends, opportunities and challenges for the future of philanthropy in Africa. The consultation stressed from the outset that Africans should not feel constrained by existing (northern) definitions of philanthropy, but should stress their own traditions of mutuality, and communal, collective responsibility. This requires understandings of philanthropy which embrace not only giving money, but commitment of time, resources and support.
