Dr Dlamini-Zuma in her critique of the AU during the 32nd Ordinary Session of the Permanent Representative Committee stated “you are most closely aware of the impact of the over-reliance on outside funding have on the Commission and organs, and on our ability to focus on the continental priorities. The reality remains, that he who pays the piper, calls the tune.”
Agenda Have Your Say

Without the assistance of our supporters, donors – governments, foundations, corporations and individuals like you, the crucial work of transforming lives in some of the poorest, hardest-to-reach parts of Africa will not be possible.
