Once every year, AFRODAD hosts an event that is commonly known as the “Summer School”. You may want to know where the name came from... simple! It takes place when it's hot and dry in Zimbabwe where the AFRODAD Secretariat is based even though we rotate from one African country to another in line with the AFRODAD's Pan-African nature.
The 2018 Summer School was held in Mangochi, Malawi, 19th to 23rd November 2018. The theme was “Raising the voice against Illicit Financial Flows, Corruption and Inequality in Africa”. The training program comprised up to 40 participants drawn from parliaments, civil society organizations, faith based organisations and media houses.
During the selection process, AFRODAD ensured that new participants attend the school so that the message and its impact keeps on spreading far and wide. We invited two participants from the previous season, so that we could hear from them concerning how the summer school had evolved over time and impacted their lives, work and their nations.
It was a great training!
