Fahamu Networks for Social Justice
Connexions Directory of Groups & Websites 2016
Purpose: Fahamu has a vision of the world where people organise to emancipate themselves from all forms of oppression, recognise their social responsibilities, respect each other#s differences, and realise their full potential.
Fahamu strengthens and nurtures the movement for social justice in Africa by:
* generating knowledge to serve activism, bridging the gap between theory and practice - Tuliwaza
* creating learning for, by and across movements - Adilisha
* amplifying Africa-centred voices, perspectives and solutions in policy and decision-making at all levels - Utetezi
* creating platforms for analysis and debate - Pambazuka
Fahamu is distinctively placed as a pan-African organisation supporting and working collaboratively with social movements over the long term. Rather than imposing generic solutions to address the needs of and to strengthen movements, Fahamu is committed to ensuring that our interventions are relevant, timely and significant to the movements we serve.
Our approach respects the collective leadership, self-determination and self-sustainability of our partners. Further, Fahamu seeks to provide diverse and innovative approaches, tactics and resources to the social movements that we work with. With our expertise, access to information and networks, we seek to enhance the access of transformative social movements to each other as well as to the processes, knowledge, skills, experience and platforms to strengthen their work.
