Who's Taking on Africa's Dirty Money Problem?

Article from Inside Philanthropy

There are a lot of problems that ail the African continent. Extreme poverty, conflict, water and sanitation issues, and food insecurity are all concerns that receive a good deal of attention from funders and NGOs. Corruption, too, has been a major focus of grantmaking that we've written about here. 

But one niche in the corruption field that we haven't talked about much is illicit financial flows. The Ford Foundation is among those funders that care about Africa’s dirty money problem, and it recently made a $3 million grant to back TrustAfrica’s advocacy efforts in this area.
