Nina Blackwell

Executive Director - Firelight Foundation

In one of the most in-depth conversations in the series, Nina Blackwell of the Firelight Foundation takes listeners on a tour of not just her philanthropy but of responsible philanthropy, speaking to many issues affecting grassroots and Community Based Organizations (CBO) not often discussed openly by donors. Nina Blackwell is the Executive Director of the Firelight Foundation, donor-enabled philanthropic fund which allows individual and foundation donors to support catalytic community-based organizations in Africa that are working to build smart, sustainable and scalable solutions to the challenges faced by children and youth. Through a mix of capital and bespoke mentoring, Firelight helps these community-based organizations realize their own collective visions of safe, strong and nurturing environments where children and youth thrive and can fulfill their potential.
