Is Aid Good or Bad for Africa? The Age Old Question Answered by Patrick Tolani

How would you answer the question?

The debate about aid to Africa continues, the question is to Aid or not to do so? how you answer probably depends on where you are sitting.

According to Patrick Tolani, Aid can never be bad, he goes on to say if offered free money, he will take it and actually enjoy it. Aid is not bad in itself, however the dependence on free help is what is bad.

When giving Aid or helping out do so by creating opportunities for everyone to do something for livelihoods.

Tolani believes in responsible aid in my opinion. He goes on to say international trade is better than Aid.

The saying

Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day; show him how to catch fish, and you feed him for a lifetime.

rings true in this case.

We must endevour to create equal platforms to trade. watch the video for more..

What Africa needs right now are responsible investments that promote and stimulate local growth. The people in leadership must have a passion to solve Africa’s challenges.
