John Ulanga—A vision of vibrant philanthropy for East Africa

EAAG’s 2013 East Africa Philanthropy Conference was designed to explore local innovative strategies developed to link social investment with social impact. John Ulanga, former EAAG Chairman and WINGS board member, shared his perspective on the event, reflecting on the changing philanthropic landscape in the region. “I believe the increased urbanisation happening in our continent, coupled with the growing middle class and the emerging elite, presents a good opportunity for the new form of philanthropy that can leverage corporate capabilities.”
