A key programme of the AGN is the biennial AGN Assembly. The Assembly convenes African and international development organisations and partners to debate development issues, showcase emerging philanthropy practices and demonstrate exciting innovative trends on the continent and beyond. This wealth of information is shared through case studies, expert presentations, plenary and breakaway sessions.

The theme for the 2015 Assembly is “Philanthropy in Africa 2015: People, Policy and Practice”, The Assembly programme will focus on the three key areas of People, Policy and Practice for analysis and engagement in the discourse on philanthropy in Africa.

The deadline for submissions is 1700hours GMT on Thursday 30th April, 2015.
