At Merckshire we are very passionate about the social impact of our projects. We employ our passion and experiences to ensure that Africa’s economic growth is comprehensive and equitably distributed. We remain committed to driving lasting social and economic change across the continent.
Merckshire is proud to support the work of The Denis & Lenora Foretia Foundation. Formed in 2012 by the chairman of Merckshire, the Foundation seeks to catalyze Africa’s economic transformation by focusing on social entrepreneurship, science and technology, innovation, public health and progressive policies that create economic opportunities for all. The foundation works in partnership with local governments, policy makers, private enterprises, civil society organizations as well as development partners to expand the resources available to entrepreneurs, farmers, and small business owners in addition to improving individual livelihoods.
Merckshire has endowed an annual grant to the Foundation. In turn, The Denis & Lenora Foretia Foundation provides support to the philanthropic activities of Merckshire and its subsidiaries.
An advisory board that consists of distinguished global leaders and thinkers leads the Denis & Lenora Foretia Foundation.
