CREATING THE

VISION TO BUILD

A BETTER AFRICA

Made In Africa Foundation was founded in 2011 by Ozwald Boateng to support and fund master plans and feasibility studies for transformational and large scale developments and infrastructure projects across the African continent. “It’s a well-known statistic that US$400 million of funding for feasibility studies and master plans across sub-Saharan Africa would develop over US$100 billion of infrastructure projects, which in turn would create a trillion dollars of value across Africa. The first step is often the hardest and we have created this Foundation with Atlantic Energy to make that step easier for Africans.” Ozwald Boateng

LEADERSHIP TEAM

OZWALD BOATENG Founder & Trustee of Made in Africa Foundation

Ozwald Boateng has had a transformational impact

on menswear fashion for almost three decades. Credited with  revolutionizing men’s tailoring with a design aesthetic rooted in Savile Row traditions but defined by international style, detail, and artistry.

 

A contemporary twist on the classic form, unifying the classic tenets of bespoke tailoring, his instinctive use of colour, cut tand fabric fuses traditional classic British tailoring with a high end modern design focus on the refinement of a man’s silhouette, which has brought tailoring to a whole new generation of men.

 

 

Ozwald Boateng reached a point in his life when he realised he had to do something to make a change in Africa. Together with a member of the royal family of Buganda, Ugandan Prince Hassan Kimbugwe and social engineer Chris Cleverly, a former barrister and the youngest Lawyer ever to set up his own chambers, Ozwald formed Made In Africa, a company with the aim of creating businesses that transform the lives of Africans in terms of employment, homes, education, energy and health.
