    Key Takeaways:

    • Shifting Focus: the importance of shifting the focus of philanthropy toward people and their needs, rather than rigid structures and log frames.

    • Philanthropy Reimagined: Shifting focus towards people’s needs, documenting successes, and learning from mistakes while creating a responsive ecosystem that is community-driven.

    • Empowering Partnerships: Spotlighting the significance of equitable, culturally sensitive partnerships with philanthropic donors, placing people at the forefront.

    •Dispelling the Myth of External Expertise: Recognising that communities are the experts of their problems; there is no such thing as ‘external expertise’.

    Let’s continue championing community-driven approaches and inclusive philanthropy aligned with real people’s needs.
