Our end goal is to deliver results by advising them and connecting them to venture philanthropy, small foundations and corporate donors, who want to make a difference. We also manage programs on behalf of our partners and donors to support vulnerable communities in times of great need both in Africa and in Europe.
Mozambique is one of Afrilanthropy’s original hubs, since 2017 we have supported several grassroots organizations and projects across regions and sectors. Mozambique has immense water, energy, and mineral resources, however, the country is still dealing with the aftermath of years of civil war, natural disasters, and an insurgency in parts of the gas-rich Cabo Delgago province.
As one of the largest oil exporters in the world, the economy with the highest nominal GDP and largest population on the continent, and home to over 200 ethnic groups, Nigeria is fittingly referred to as the African giant. On the flipside of Africa’s behemoth there are widespread challenges linked to various forms of poverty, food insecurity, and environmental degradation. Afrilanthropy has partnered with Nigerian social businesses that work towards sustainable and resilient agriculture and food value chains.
Côte d'Ivoire was hailed as a regional model of stability and economic success, but an armed rebellion in 2002 split the nation in two and saw continuous episodes of violence during the country’s slow journey towards a political resolution of the conflict. Despite the instability, Ivory Coast is the world's largest exporter of cocoa beans, and it consistently outstrips its neighbours when it comes to agricultural output. Agriculture is the largest employer and the sector that has allowed the standard of living of the country’s citizens to remain relatively high amidst conflict and political turmoil, therefore, sustainable practices and solutions are invaluable.
Senegal is one of Africa’s most stable economies and political systems, often touted as one of Africa’s model democracies. Though the national economy traditionally centered on the cultivation of a single cash crop, the government has worked successfully to diversify both cash crops and subsistence agriculture while expanding into new commodities and nonagricultural sectors. Nonetheless, increased prosperity has not trickled down much of the population, with ⅔ of rural inhabitants living in poverty (Borgen Magazine, 2017). Many cite the lack of financial inclusion of many Senegalese, particularly those based in rural areas, as part of the reason for persistent poverty.
Like many of its neighbours, Uganda was marred by violence and conflict, however, in recent decades Uganda has become an example of peace and economic stability. Uganda’s relative stability has turned it into a safe haven for refugees from neighbouring states, making it the largest refugee-hosting country in Africa. At the same time, many Ugandan citizens and residents -50 percent being younger than 15- continue to live in poverty. Uganda’s Human Capital Index was ranked 137/157, over 50 percent of children do not complete their primary education and most families rely on subsistence farming for their livelihoods.
In the last three decades Rwanda has undergone an impressive transformation, emerging from the ashes of genocide and devastation as a peaceful state that has experienced ‘miraculous’ economic growth, recovery, and development. Rwanda aims to position itself as a regional hub for logistics, transformation, and technology, in line with this, the country hosts the only big data hub in the region. However, as a resource-poor and densely populated country, Rwanda continues to grapple with economic and social inclusion, particularly in rural areas where over 40 percent of the population lives in poverty
