The Annual Philanthropy Talk 2017
28th November 2017, 5:15pm, Lower Parliament Hall, South Street, St Andrews

In this public lecture, Dr Susan Wilkinson Maposa, author of the groundbreaking work “The Poor Philanthropist: how and why the poor help each other”, will examine alternative forms of philanthropy and their relevance for addressing contemporary challenges in developing and mobilising community resources.

Drawing on over a decade of research across Africa, Dr Wilkinson Maposa’s talk will address: What is ‘poor philanthropy’? How does this perspective contribute to understanding ‘African philanthropy’ as opposed to ‘Philanthropy in Africa’? What is the murky side of poor philanthropy and where is the light in its future outlook and prospects? Can ‘poor philanthropy’ be used to advance the call to ‘shift the power’ in development assistance towards communities? What lessons do these insights offer for mobilising and strengthening communities in Scotland, the UK, and beyond?
The event is free to attend. However, as places are limited, registration is required.
