Philanthropy is inherent in the African Culture, for example, in the old, no child was ever an orphan, because there were always relatives or friends to take up and provide full care to a child who lost either or both parents. Mysteriously, the said orphan had more attention than the borne children of the surrogate home, because culture demanded appeasement to the dead parents, by not letting the orphan to cry or regret having lost the parents.
Therefore, African Philanthropy should promote this culture by institutionalization and capacity strengthening of the available Human Resource.
Giving to the Needy makes us GOOD and the likes of God, who GAVE and is still GIVING to man, even though man do not deserve His Goodness.
