History of NEXUS in Africa
NEXUS Africa convened for the first time June 2013 in Johannesburg as a partnership between NEXUS, the Ubuntu Institute
At the receiving end of much of the world’s charity for the past few decades, Africa has turned the corner. Home to some of the most significant economic growth in the past few years, the African impact investing and philanthropic sectors are on the rise, with Africans, themselves, taking the lead. NEXUS is proud to support and empower this growth and rise of a philanthropic movement.
Our vision is to develop a prosperous Africa over the next 50 years.
