Century of Africa by Ray Dinning

The Toronto Globe is partnering with Bono, Geldof, and their organization ONE to explore these issues in advance of Canada hosting two critically important summits of world leaders in June – the G8 and the G20. The crisis of extreme poverty in developing countries, particularly in Africa, will be a focus at both meetings. This is the first time the Globe has invited guest-editors into the newsroom, and the first time Bono and Geldof guest-edited a North American newspaper. Also, for weeks leading up to the G20 Summit in Toronto, the Globe and Mail will explore key issues around the meeting of the world’s developed nations, from maternal health at the G8 in Huntsville, to the question of African development and how to deal with the global financial crisis.

These issues are critical for social entrepreneurs as it is the private sector and job creation that will help to move the continent forward.  Check out the article.
