Solutions Storytelling Project

Funding Africa

From "Solutions Inside Out," a short film from Eric Mwangi x African Visionary Fund

In a world in which African-led social impact organizations are often overlooked, Atti Worku and Teresa Njoroge scope the systemic inequities that exist in global philanthropy — and call for change. This film is a product of the Solutions Storytelling Project.
