While it takes a village to raise a child... sometimes that village can use some support.
Africa is at the dawn of an economic revolution not unlike that seen in Asia and more recently in South America. It is important that this revolution benefit everyone, rather than just the existing African elite. To help ensure that, the grassroots organizations working to improve their local communities need support.
This support may include financial contributions, but more importantly they need information, connections and guidance to help them help themselves. African's already know what their most pressing problems are. They don't need Western "experts" to tell them this. They also know of many solutions that will help them resolve their problems themselves. But like anyone, anywhere, it helps to have a little guidance, support and encouragement to reach those goals.
African Solutions is about helping these community groups reach their goals.
If this is something that interests you, then this may be the right group for you! We do ask for a nominal monthly membership fee to help over the costs of running this group, and to also encourage participation. If the group becomes a success and we are able to also raise money through memberships or on fundraising meet-ups, all the better to provide support for those fellow world changers in Africa seeking to improve their lives.
