Don’t miss the launch of Expensive Poverty by Greg Mills, with guest speaker HE President Hakainde Hichilema (26 Jan)
 More about the book!

Join Pan Macmillan for the book launch of Expensive Poverty by Greg Mills.

Special guest speaker HE President Hakainde Hichilema and director of The Brenthurst Foundation Dr Greg Mills will lead the discussion on why aid fails and how it can work.

Africa has received $1.2 trillion in development assistance since 1990. Even though donors have spent more than $1 000 per person over these 30 years, the average income of sub-Saharan Africans has increased by just $350.

The continent has very little to show for this money, some of which has been consumed by the donors themselves, much of it by local governments and elites. There must be a better way to address the poverty pandemic.
