“If you want to go fast, go alone, but if you want to go far, go together.”
This old African proverb underpins UNDP’s engagement with philanthropic foundations for the implementation of the new sustainable development agenda.
Ghana is the fourth country – following Kenya, Colombia and Indonesia – where we are connecting local foundations with the UN, government, private sector and civil society led policy discussions and development initiatives. The project is in collaboration with our partners the Foundation Center and Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors and aims to localize the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
