Africa’s agricultural footprint massively impacts the social and economic sectors across the continent. The agriculture sector employs the majority of the population and accounts for 14% of the GDP in sub-Saharan Africa.
Investing in the knowledge and skills of its growing young population is critical for Africa’s economic growth, global competitiveness as well as sustainable peace and social development. In line with the Foundation’s mission of investing in human and physical capital, we implement standalone and integrated projects that aim at improving access to and quality of education.
In the Health pillar, The Pharo Foundation implements programmes that aim to increase the access to and quality of health care, focusing on health infrastructure improvement, human capacity development, and public health interventions. The Pharo Foundation recognises health as a key aspect of human and economic development and is working to increase access and quality of health care in Africa.
The Water sector touches nearly every aspect of development. It drives economic growth, supports a healthy ecosystem and is critical to human capital by improving the health status and increasing life expectancy. The Foundation works to improve access to safe, adequate and affordable drinking water as well as improved sanitation facilities. Ultimately, the Foundation aims to create reliable water sources for improved livelihoods.
