Africa-Gives seeks to create and develop mechanisms for young diaspora Africans – 18 to 35 – to connect with Africa by mobilising significant resources for development in Africa through the contribution of time, money and skills while building a relationship with the continent.
To raise funds towards developing an online platform that enables young Africans in the UK to connect with, and support, their peers in Africa to be self-enterprising via structured mechanisms, Africa-Gives, in partnership with The Cinema Musueum, is hosting an Autumn Fundraiser with a screening of Invictus, a film based on how Nelson Mandela initiated a unique venture to unite South Africa through the game of rugby. Special guest (Q&A session) for the evening is writer John Carlin, author of Playing the Enemy: Nelson Mandela and the Game that made a Nation, the book that inspired the film Invictus. John Carlin will also sign copies of his book.
Africa-Gives is managed by the African Foundation for Development (AFFORD) and funded by Rockefeller Foundation.
