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?

    Feb 13 2013: Thank you so much all of you for your deep insights and contributions. My team and I would love to have the opportunity of hearing from and working with those of you who believe that we can bring a shift to African Nations. We have some ideas and models that we have started developing and we believe in the power of bringing our minds and thoughts together for the good of many.
