GivingTuesday is a global movement centered on releasing the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and the world. GivingTuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. Since then, it has grown into a year-round global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.
As the local coordinators of the movement, the East Africa Philanthropy Network (EAPN) aims to support and promote philanthropy in the region through partnering with local organizations and individuals in their efforts to amplify generosity and giving locally.
The #GivingTuesday movement is a strong catalyst for developmental change in the world through the unique and creative models of giving conducted and adopted in various parts of the globe. In its 6th year of existence in the East Africa region, #GivingTuesday has been instrumental in creating opportunities for organizations and individuals to support the communities they serve and be part of a global movement whose aim is to make the world a better place.
EAPN supports the work of our partners from Kenya, Rwanda and Uganda in crafting and actualization of ideas for their campaigns through availing of knowledge resources on the various websites; Kenya, Uganda ,Rwanda, creating avenues for publicity of their ongoing campaigns through the social media platforms, fostering of sustainable partnerships between organizations and individuals who are part of the #GivingTuesday community.
