Africa's civil-society organizations must become more adept at persuading potential African donors that they are worthy aid recipients. According to EPIC-Africa, a Dakar-based nonprofit that tracks CSO effectiveness, there is little credible data on the number of African CSOs, what they do and how they effect change in the places where they operate. The African diaspora, as well as Africans on the continent with disposable income, can help governments achieve the SDGs by directing resources to organizations that are best positioned to create African wealth.All of this would help Africa realize its economic potential, including its potential to fuel global prosperity.Since 2015, Africa's household spending growth has averaged 3.5 percent, and by the end of 2019, consumer demand is forecast to add as much as $1.1 trillion to African GDP, further evidence that a growing number of Africans have the financial means to help the African continent achieve its human-development objectives.
