Buntwani is Kiswahili for "Open Space" where elders from the Mijikenda communities in Kenya would sit in a circle under an indigenous tree to deliberate on strategic issues of their time. Sitting in a circle denoted equality and open participation.
Buntwani is our annual invite-only event where we bring CSOs, Funders, Government Officials at the national and subnational level together to have frank conversations that lead to collaborations and action on the issues prevailing. We have held Buntwani in various countries over the years including Kenya, Tanzania, Ghana and South Africa.
This year, we are going to be hosting Buntwani as an entirely virtual event from the 16th to the 18th of November 2021. The way we are doing it is that we shall be hosting one 3-hour session on a specific topic each day.
