Business for Development: This is the right paradigm to bring about a change in the economic status of what are normally referred to as "developing countries". Being a proud, cardholding member of the developing country called Kenya I am a firm believer in this philosophy. and having witnessed the economic transformation that the country has gone through over the past 5 years I must say that there is a lot of truth in that belief.
The other day, founder of the Enablis Entrepreneurial Network said it perfectly, "development will not come from poverty alleviation, it will come from wealth creation". It is my prayer that more countries in Africa look at building their entrepreneurs and private sector as the main thrust towards national development.
