Philanthropist Organizations and People in Africa

There are several philanthropists and charitable foundations operating in Africa. These individuals and organizations work with the aim of making the continent a better place to live. They support the charities and NGOs that are actively tackling problems on the continent — whether these problems are social, economic or environmental.

Some philanthropic projects in Africa can only be delivered effectively with the help of sponsorship or funding, for example for supplying food to poverty stricken areas. Other projects require a more hands-on approach to betterment — like educating communities about preventative healthcare.
On this website we take a closer look at some of the biggest givers on the continent, and explore how they are making a difference.
