I am honoured to be part of Afrilanthropy. I believe in the mission of this organisation and in its exceptional team.
Afrilanthropy taps into a powerful but often ignored resource, which is philanthropic investment. Usually unreachable for companies, it is nonetheless an important potential partner for its willingness to extend preferential terms for high-impact social businesses. It does so thanks to its extensive networks, both within the global investment community, and on the ground across Africa.

Fascinating concept, developing financing opportunities for small and growing social businesses across the continent, which would otherwise not have access to that kind of financing.

Effectively and efficiently linking a large and globally dispersed network of social impact donors with entrepreneurs in Africa having innovative solutions to improve the quality of life for the poorest of the poor is greatly needed. I am anticipating the need to raise capital for the many millions of children in Africa unable to attend school in Africa and will most definitely draw on Afrilanthropy to determine how they can assist.
