Inspire others with your story

From our student: Ruth Rakosa

The programme has proven to be a most intense, insightful and exciting programme, well put-together and covering the most pertinent issues in philanthropy. It has far surpassed my expectations and I am honored to be among the inaugural students laying a solid academic path and foundation for those who will follow.

The programme comes at a time when the contribution of philanthropy in social development is in the spotlight. Amid a health crisis, which has political, economic and human rights implications, the role of philanthropy as an agent for change cannot be overemphasized. The context we find ourselves in, could very well herald a new era for the way we practice philanthropy in Africa in particular. The course is well-positioned to lay a strong, theoretical foundation that draws on real contexts on the ground.

To the brains that conceptualized the programme and the lecturers that delivered the modules and articulated complex, and sometimes controversial topics with expertise and passion, thank you for growing our understanding of the field of philanthropy. To my fellow students, your enquiring minds and robustness make it a pleasure to learn and share with you.

Ruth Rakosa is a student on the Postgraduate Diploma in Management in the field of Philanthropy and Resource Mobilization.
