What we work on
A Request for Proposals
House of Stone' by Novuyo Rosa Tshuma was the fourth book in our African book talk series. With this series, we hope to offer a platform where African writers can engage a global audience, offering not just their work, but exciting perspectives on how personal, political, and cultural experiences drive their storytelling.
This social entrepreneurship workshop organized in collaboration with Columbia University’s Building Blocks was held between November 2 to December 7, 2020.
While women's rights are already suppressed across the world, the pandemic has exacerbated these situations in the region during lockdowns and in an absence of adequate response. From this stems a need to host a discussion on the measures to address the impact of the pandemic and the lockdown, which has put women and girls in more vulnerable positions and let them slide into poverty further.
