To Sustainably Address the Vast Social and Environmental Challenges on the African Continent, Africa’s Grassroots Citizen Sector Should Be Nurtured to Be Self Sufficient.
In most of Africa’s remote communities, social innovation—from alternative energy solutions to clean water sources—has to be pioneered solely by the locally-based social entrepreneurs and small grassroots organizations. That’s, like in communities elsewhere that have steered past extreme poverty, citizens are more indebted to drive lasting change, and all external endeavors usually prove too remote and shortlived.
At that crossroads, with no difference made by over $1 trillion dollar in development aid to end extreme poverty for Africa’s rural poor in the last 50 years, the continent’s Grassroots Citizen Sector needs to be equipped to be Self Sufficient and Inventive.
The goal of this campaign is to reverse the cycle of poverty for Africa’s rural poor by building a Self-Sustaining Africa’s Grassroots Citizen Sector—the turning point for social change in Africa’s remote communities. By directly working with the poverty-stricken communities (unlike other End Poverty Campaigns) and building the capacity of grassroots change architects, social change will be bottom up and sustainable.
We shall define this goal with our own community agribusiness enterprise. Then, we will leverage our enterprise-generated finance to create a Social Investment Fund to nurture other grassroots social change-makers (small nonprofits & entrepreneurs) on creating social and environmental innovation through financially self-sufficient social business models. That will be Strategy 1. See all our 2 planned action strategies.
