By all measures, poverty in Africa as a whole has increased and deepened. But in fact, Africa contains a number of undocumented success stories of poverty reduction. This book presents case studies of thirteen of these success stories, giving grounds for some real hope, and providing useful learning for all policymakers, governments, businesses, service providers, non-governmental organizations, and donors. Case studies are drawn from the experiences of Uganda, Rwanda, Senegal, Kenya, Botswana, Mauritania, Tanzania, Lesotho, Zambia, Malawi, South Africa, and Ghana.
