Trust Africa is an African intermediary foundation focused on three areas: securing the conditions for democracy; fostering African enterprise and broadly shared prosperity; and cultivating African resources for democracy and development. In 2012, initiated by MacArthur, and in partnership with five other donors, Trust Africa established the Fund to Advance Criminal Justice in Africa (the Fund) to strengthen the capacity of local civil society organizations to combat impunity through concerted advocacy for domestic accountability mechanisms, more effective engagement with regional and international processes, and improved knowledge and understanding of criminal justice issues, especially accountability for mass atrocities. In this final phase of work, the Fund focuses on providing grants and technical assistance to African NGOs for advocacy and capacity development to support implementation of the African Union policy in Mali and Nigeria.
