Can donor funding really fix African challenges, or should we empower African communities to address their own challenges?

Charity gives but does not really transform. For a very long time, donor assistance has been chanelled through to Africa and that really hasnt changed much. Could it be possible to birth a generation of people who are willing to be empowered with means of generating income that eventually get channeled back into communities for purposes of delivering renewal and transformation? How do we get communities to participate in the engineering of a promising future both for the continent and individual nations?

    Jan 31 2013: Haingo Rajaonarison i agree with you i think Africa now needs quality and accurate thinkers that are rooted in ethics and integrity ,who are willing to build productive structures and models that are accountable to their own people and also Africa needs to build a management system that wisely manages it's resources and lastly African leaders must begin to believe in their own people.
