Feminist philanthropy comes to South Asia

May 9, 2017

For decades, the donor-grantee power relationship has been skewed. Those who 'give' have power over those who 'receive'. This is even more pronounced in south Asia where the state, donors based in the global north and corporate foundations dominate. It is crucial, therefore, that women's funds in particular are challenging the current politics of aid as well as the status quo that exists within it, which excludes the voices and leadership of women, trans and other marginalized communities.Alliance issue: Philanthropy's Diversity Challenge; September 2017, Volume 22, Number 3.

Case study - Philanthropy in disaster: work 'twice blest'

November 29, 2016

The disaster relief work we have done following the April 2015 earthquake in Nepal has convinced Tewa and its sister organization Nagarik Aawaz (NA) of the value of altruism in philanthropy. When all is lost, funding is needed but without love and care, the trauma is less likely to be healed. We learned that this work, as Shakespeare's Portia remarks in The Merchant of Venice, 'is twice blest'. It benefits both the giver and receiver.
