What creates prosperity in the developing world? What helps the poor escape poverty for good? Is more government aid the answer, or is there a better way? Recognizing that private investment and good governance are the engines of growth in developing countries, many realists believe that foreign aid can be more effective through private giving, volunteerism, public-private partnerships, and individual remittances.
Historically less reliant on government aid than Europeans, Americans are on the forefront of private global giving. Hudson’s new Index of Global Philanthropy presents the first comprehensive measure of American giving abroad—public as well as private.
Join us for a keynote address by Amir Dossal, head of the United Nations Fund for International Partnerships, and other panelists for a first-hand look at what works—and why—in creating prosperity in the developing world.
