Greetings Glocal Citizens!
This week we're venturing down to South Africa where we meet one of Africa's most prominent experts on African philanthropy. Dr. Bhekinkosi Moyo, born and raised in Zimbabwe--now based in Pretoria, SA, is a descendant of the Moyo (heart/soul) and Ndlovu (elephant) clans. Over the course of his personal and professional lives, he has continued to marvel and draw strength from their combined histories and diversities. He is a writer, author, researcher and thought-leader with keen interest in questions of African resources, democracy and governance. He has, so far, championed African discourse on philanthropy, contributed to the growth of many African civil society formations and has taken part in most of the continental processes of development and governance. He is currently an adjunct professor at University of the Witwatersrand Business School where he also heads the Centre on African Philanthropy and Social Investment https://capsi.co.za/ . Dr. Moyo has more than twenty years experience working on knowledge generation, research and policy analysis as well as building capable institutions across Africa. He writes and support institutions of civil society, private sector and intergovernmental agencies on matters of governance, development and sustainability. Dr. Moyo, over the years, has become a go to specialist on African philanthropy. There's sooooo much more to learn from this dedicated activist, #listenandlearn!
