Aid is in vain if it ultimately does not lead to self-sufficiency and sustainability, and Africare embodies this philosophy.
–Olivier Agouna-Deciat, Co-Founder of Kasny Recon, Inc., one of Africare’s partners in Women’s Empowerment initiatives
Africa is rising, and one result of this growth is increased interest among companies around the world in investing on the continent. Faster and faster, the private sector is seeing that healthy, productive African communities are good for business, in addition to being important for their own sake. Partnerships between non-governmental organizations like Africare and the business community offer long-term potential for Africa’s economic development. As the private sector grows, so too does their stake in the well-being and future of their employees and consumers.
Africare selectively partners with the private sector to support programs strengthening local institutions and delivering positive results to communities.
Africare’s vision for corporate social responsibility looks to create sustainable, mutually beneficial impacts with measurable returns, and Africare has worked all over the continent with corporations to not only improve the quality of life of those we serve, but also to enhance the economic impact of industrial growth in the countries where we work.
