As we seek varied avenues to define our agenda for promoting an African voice and agenda for philanthropy, to grow a
transformed, relevant, vibrant and sustainable African community of philanthropy and social investment, we have
deliberately embraced the value of utilising a platform that brings together African Knowledge in philanthropy,
to endeavour to address the persistent development challenges in Africa.
The Inaugural AGN assembly was held in Nairobi in November 2010, where more than 200 participants representing African
grant making organizations and partners from other parts of the world converged to set an agenda for African philanthropy.
