“I took part in a panel discussion at the Global Africa Business Summit in Kigali, Rwanda today. The summit was organised by COMESA and the Rwandan government.

Reginald Abraham Mengi is considered a pioneer of corporate social responsibility in Tanzania. He contributes his time and resources to poverty eradication and economic empowerment schemes for youths, women, and other disadvantaged members of society, including the disabled. For more than 18 years he has hosted luncheons for over 5,000 people with disabilities. In his capacity as a United Nations World Food Programme “End Hunger” Ambassador in Tanzania, Mr. Mengi has successfully supported a national scheme to provide school children with free meals.
