Alright, maybe not, but we do want to highlight this article from Forbes about the philanthropic leanings of Africa’s 40 richest people. Africa’s wealthiest have yet to make a name for themselves from the perspective of global philanthropy, but some have made significant investments in their respective countries. According to the article, healthcare, small business development/microfinance, education, and “poverty alleviation” are the major interest areas for Africa’s well-to-do do-gooders.
Because ConceptLink isn’t above a little healthy peer pressure, we notice that some of the names featured in Monday’s infographic of Africa’s Top Ten Wealthiest People seem to be missing from Forbes’ highlight of Africa’s significant givers. (This means you, Johann Rupert, Patrice Motsepe, Mike Adenuga, Yasseen Mansour, and Christoffel Wiese!)
