The saying “beside every successful man, there is a woman” is a big understatement. In 2012, American Express reported that Women Owned Businesses generate nearly $1.3 trillion in revenues in the US each year. It also reported that between 1997 and 2012, when the number of businesses in the United States increased by 37%, the number of women-owned firms increased by 54%—a rate 1½ times the national average. Therefore the saying should be “within every successful economy, there are women...

Africa – Africans in the Diaspora

11/13/2013
More
When it comes to defining the nature and funding for Africa’s growth, the driver’s seat seems to be occupied by non-Africans. It was first the colonial masters, then America and lately the Chinese. But with remittance from Africans in the diaspora now outstripping foreign aid from foreign governments, can Africans get together, unite and take over the task of really and truly driving Africa’s growth? Can we, in spite of our differences shape our own destiny? If yes, how can individuals,...

African Languages - Endangered Species

10/23/2013
More
Forget the elephants, penguins or tigers, Africa’s most endangered “species” are not animals, but our languages and culture. African children in the Diaspora and even those born and raised within the continent hardly speak or understand their mother tongue nowadays. While African children easily identify with eastern or western culture, many know next to nothing about their own heritage. Given that our culture and languages are our biggest sources of identity, we need to do something to...

Sending Money Home for Growth

Remittances to home countries by Africans in Diaspora run into billions of dollars every year. In fact, according to the World Bank, the total amount of $51.8bn “sent home” by Africans in the Diaspora far outweighed the $43bn official development assistance given to Africa by western donors in 2010. A lot of analysts however believe that the amount of remittances by Africans in Diaspora is under reported because of the fund transferred via informal channels. In this episode of Impact...

When asked to nominate three sectors that will shape Africa's growth in the next century, the chances that many respondents will name farming and agriculture among the top 3 are really slim.

However, my guests on Impact Africa today will share details of multi/million dollar farming projects that will show you that...
