Africa Podfest is driven by a clear, singular focus: Inspiring and elevating African podcasters by building a sustainable and inclusive podcasting industry across Africa. The organisation’s intention is to achieve this by simplifying podcast learning, placing a spotlight on African podcasters, and centering voices that have been in the margins, including youth, low-income communities, women, activists, LGBTQA+ people and people with disabilities. The result? Opening up fresh perspectives to how people see themselves, express themselves, and with that, create room for more people to understand the rich diversity of perspectives and experiences across Africa. Their ANF grant will support the Africa Podcast Day 2022.
