Photo: 2020 will be remembered for a number of obvious challenges related to the COVID-19 pandemic. But the situation also provided a moment for important, digital collaboration between movements around the globe.

A digital roundtable on the interconnections between the struggle against increasing racism, supremacy, destruction of democracy, and colonial policies brought together Bertha Zuñiga (Honduras), Vijoo Krishnan (India), Sônia Guajajara (Brazil), and Jamal Juma (Palestine). The session was moderated by Rita Abu Ghosh (Palestine). The session was the first of a series of webinars organized as part of the “World without Walls” movement, organized by the Palestinian Stop the Wall Campaign.”

In this dramatic year, there is even a greater need to tell the stories of the brave initiatives and actors who have challenged injustice despite (and in response to) the global pandemic.

In that sense, we are pleased to present “A Year at a Glance” 2020, a small collection of impressions and glimpses from various programs and activities organized by partners of the Karibu Foundation in 2020.

This year’s collection includes an interview with former Africa Coordinator for the UN Millennium Development Goals, Hellen Grace Akwii-Wangusa (Uganda), about working for justice in a year of COVID-19, what we have learned, and what social movements will need to focus on moving forward. It also includes information about the grants shared by Karibu throughout the year and how our grant-making has changed in an extraordinary year.
