The book is a collection of 16 narratives that focus on the "increasingly confident and knowledgeable assertion of African capacities to give not only to help, but also to transform and seek the root cause of injustice, want, ignorance, and disease," Aina writes in the preface. Here he answers some questions about this ambitious exploration of African philanthropic experiences ‰ÓÛ its variety, challenges, and opportunities.
