Our Ntha Foundation team is in this week in Windhoek, Namibia, for a an exciting week of networking, learning, and exchanges with the Sound Connects Fund team.

Representing our team are our Managing Director, Rhoda Kamwaza, and our Hub Manager Linda Mchawi. While on our way, we ran into our Legal Advisor, Advocate Alexius Kamangira in the airport as he was on his way from Kenya to Blantyre.

Implemented by Music In Africa Foundation and Goethe Institut, the Sound Connects Fund (SCF) is a multifaceted initiative that aims to accelerate development and increase the capacity of the cultural and creative sectors in Southern Africa by offering financial support in the form of grants and robust capacity-building programmes to eligible creative and cultural industry organisations based in Angola, Botswana, eSwatini, Lesotho, Malawi, Mozambique, Namibia, Zambia and Zimbabwe. The Sound Connects Fund is made possible with funding from the ACP-EU Culture programme, a project implemented by the Organisation of the African, Caribbean and Pacific States (OACPS) and funded by the European Union (EU).

The event in Namibia is organised by the Music In Africa Foundation in partnership with the Goethe Institut and Ngandu Events (local partner). The organisers have facilitated the participation of our team and all other particiants by covering all associated travel costs (return flights, local travel, accommodation and per diem) for the full duration of stay.

The team are joining several other organisations who were selected for the implementation of the final round of the Sound Connects Fund for a 1-week long grantee conference, training, and networking event, and they are very excited to network with fellow African creative ecosystem builders and innovation enablers.
