Sally Osberg’s Op-Ed in the Financial Times’ “This is Africa” MagazineDecember 26, 2012 by Sally Farhat Kassab
“Social entrepreneurs see possibility where others see problems. They are unapologetically ambitious, setting their sights not just on incremental improvements but on systems-level transformation. And to achieve their audacious ends, social entrepreneurs enroll those most vested in that transformation — people oppressed, marginalised, or constrained by an existing reality.”
Those are Skoll Foundation CEO Sally Osberg’s words in This is Africa, a new publication from the Financial Times that “seeks to examine African business and politics in a global context and to make sense of the relationships that Africa is building with the rest of the world.”
In it, Osberg gives several real life examples of Skoll award winners who are embodying this change in Africa, including Taddy Blecher, Andrew Youn, and Paul Farmer.
