How can we harness the power of communities and networks as tools for humanitarian learning?

In this podcast episode, Esther Grieder (the HLA's Global Communities and Partnerships Lead), leads a deep dive discussion with three seasoned community builders from Ghana, Nigeria and the UK to share and compare professional experiences.

Tune in to hear insightful learnings and reflections from Esther and guests Ese Emerhi (Global Network Weaver for Global Fund for Community Foundations), Jon Novakovic (Executive Director for Global Inter-agency Security Forum – GISF), and Nancy Kankam Kusi (Programme Officer for West Africa Civil Society Institute – WACSI).

Intentionality in community building work, as well as the importance of trust, emerge as key themes in this illuminating discussion.
