Learning Journey

LEARNING JOURNEY

DECOLONIZE YOUR PHILANTHROPY

 

WHAT IS THE IMPACT YOU WANT TO HAVE IN OUR WORLD?

IS YOUR PHILANTHROPY SUPPORTING THAT LEGACY?

Join global thought leader, Degan Ali, for a powerful week of learning to answer these questions.

In April of 2024, a small group of philanthropists will come together for an immersive experience that will reveal new, more impactful, ways to make a difference. By creating a courageous community for change, the Learning Journey is a unique opportunity to envision a bold future for our world and directly contribute to achieving it.

The Learning Journey is unlike other donor education programs. It is a transformative experience of looking internally, grappling with uncomfortable truths about the world, envisioning bold alternatives for the future, and considering the legacy that you want to have.

ABOUT THE LEARNING JOURNEY

At Adeso, we believe in a world where people thrive through their own resourcefulness and tenacity – and we understand first-hand the barriers to achieving this. The impacts of deep inequality and injustice continue to be felt by communities across the Global South, despite decades of development assistance and philanthropic funding to programs meant to alleviate these issues.

WE KNOW THE SOLUTION TO THIS PROBLEM

THEY REQUIRE CHANGE-MAKING PHILANTHROPISTS LIKE YOU THEY REQUIRE UNLEARNING, COLLABORATION, AND COURAGE

The Learning Journey is a powerfully transformative program unlike any other donor education program, intentionally designed to enable you to:

  • Interrogate why global inequality, injustice, and instability are not by chance, but by design.
  • Explore the consequences of global power inequality like hunger and migration.
  • Hear Global South perspectives on the cause and possible solutions to the world’s greatest problems, like climate change.
  • Discover the foundations of philanthropy and see how African philanthropists are changing the status-quo and giving boldly.
  • Grow confidence, knowledge, and skills to be an advocate and leader for change.
  • Experience Kenya at its most authentic and create meaningful connections.

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Meet Kenya’s leading social entrepreneurs and activists to explore their efforts for social change driven by Kenyans for Kenyans.
  • Experience the dry lands of Northern Kenya and learn from local leaders how they are solving their community’s water and food scarcity.
  • Participate in challenging group discussions and collaborative learning in community with other visionaries.
