The Sagamore Institute has been working in Africa for years. Once a continent seemingly dependent on aid, it has become one of the fastest growing economic regions in the world. Our years of involvement in the region have shown us again and again that true aid starts from the bottom up and not from the top down. By encouraging empowered economies rather than governmental dependency, people, regions, and nations are able to end generational cycles of aid dependency.
We at Sagamore know Africa is a continent bursting with untapped potential and endless possibility. That’s why we, through research and strategic partnerships promoting enterprise creation and agricultural development, don’t just give charitable handouts but rather economic “hand-ups” into the global economy.
