We look forward to welcoming Africa No Filter's Natasha Kimani, Dharshie Wissah from Dharshie Photography and Clare Kiely from On Our Radar for this event.

Alternative Care

10th November 2022 | 12.00 - 13.30

If your international development charity works with children and families, join us for this event on Alternative Care. There is global momentum building, with an increasing number of governments, donors, childcare and protection providers advocating for the rights of children separated from families, ensuring that the issue remains at the top of the child protection and global development agenda. The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child is particularly emphatic on the protection of the family and the rights of the child to parental care.

Join Georgina Harris Hill from Pamoja Leo, and Christopher Muwanguzi from Child's i Foundation to hear more about how to build strong and safe families, surrounded by strengthened communities they can rely on.

PARTNER EVENT: Understanding Positionality and Ceding Power

6th September 2022 | 10.30 - 13.00

Hub Cymru Africa is working with Sub-Sahara Advisory Panel to host two free workshops which look at Power and Privilege in Global Solidarity working - with the aim of better understanding colonial legacies and actions we can take to move from development working to being in solidarity.
Partners in Africa (or elsewhere) are welcome to join providing they have a link to the UK.

This 2nd session will focus on identifying positionality within intersecting power structures and how to confront these without hostility or disillusion with the aim of informing participants of how they take up space within global solidarity.

The session will also cover ways to cede power within partnerships and the ways in which individuals and groups can use their unique position of power and/or privilege to further sustainably strengthen work in global solidarity.

This session is FREE.
