The purpose of this paper is to briefly describe the economic conditions currently prevailing in Sub-Saharan Africa, in particular in a post-Covid 19 environment, and to present and analyse the role played by private organizations to help reach some of the seventeen Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), listed in the United Nations’ 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. This paper will focus on five of the SDGs, specifically Goals 3 (Good Health and Well-being), 4 (Education), 5 (Gender Equality), 8 (Decent Work and Economic Growth), and 9 (Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure) and relate them to a number of private initiatives launched locally with the support of external and foreign contributors.
