Editorial Reviews

Review

«[…] a thoughtful study sure to provoke debate.» (Professor Gay Seidman, University of Wisconsin-Madison)
«This is a book for everyone - academics and policy practitioners alike - who take an interest in […] the next generation of development strategies in Africa […]» (Distinguished Professor Emeritus Goran Hyden, University of Florida)
«The book is a must read not only for academics and students working in the field but also for policy makers, aid workers, and business leaders who seek to bring about a positive impact not just for their organizations but for the people affected by their actions.» (Julia Büchele, African Studies Quarterly 13, 2013/4)
«This book represents a thoughtful study of Africa’s past, its present development and provokes useful debates on the future paradigms and models for an appropriate and sustainable development of the so-called Dark Continent. The book is, therefore, very useful for academics, professionals, development activists and policy makers taking little or deeper interest in the future of Africa’s development. Even microfinance practitioners can have an overview of how the industry is faring in the continent. For the AU and NEPAD, the book comes as an additional impetus to their efforts of promoting African-led development. Students of African studies will find this book quite rewarding.» (Roland Azibo Balgah, Quarterly Journal of International Agriculture 52, 2013/1)

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Dr Makoba's book is a timely contribution to the subject of development in Africa in particular he undertakes a massive task of reviewing the performance by development-oriented non-governmental organisations (NGOs) and microfinance institutions (MFIs) with a special focus on Uganda. The book is constituted of seven chapters including a comprehensive bibliography. Through an evaluative and analytical approach Dr Makoba reviews NGOs and MFIs operations in Africa revealing constraining factors to their effectiveness in fulfilling their objectives. He also examines the ideologies and politics underlying microfinance agendas in particular the `socially' and the `commercially' driven approaches. The central thesis in Dr Makoba's book is the preposition of "The Triple Partnership for Development" as an alternative strategy for enhancing effectiveness of aid to the poor in
Sub-Saharan Africa. Dr Makoba's book will be useful to faculties working in areas of development studies in Africa both at undergraduate and postgraduate level. The book is also suitable to a general reader who is interested or working in the area of development in Africa.
