Summary
Centre for Civil Society Partnership in Philanthropy and Social Entrepreneurship Project

Funded by the CS Mott Foundation, the CCS Partnership in Philanthropy and Social Entrepreneurship Project affords young African researchers an opportunity to conduct research and to publish within the field of philanthropy.

The first research project, focusing on philanthropic and civil society responses to the xenophobia outbreak in Durban in 2008, was carried out in 2008 / 2009. It culminated in the first Young Researchers Philanthropy Initiative report entitled 'Stepping into the breach: Philanthropic and civil society responses to xenophobia in Durban 2008'. The two researchers who worked on the project were SDS Masters Students, Samantha Schwarer and Welcome Mwelase.

The second research project, focusing on understandings of 'Ubuntu' and local level forms of giving in the Mchunu rural community KZN is currently being carried out by SDS Masters Student Siphamandla Chili and PhD Student Anne Murenha. The findings will be compiled as the second Young Researchers Philanthropy Initiative report by the end of 2010.
