MacArthur, Ford, Rockefeller, and Carnegie are the founding partners in this work, which to date has brought more than $150 million to the work of strengthening higher education in six African countries—Ghana, Mozambique, South Africa, Tanzania, Uganda, and Nigeria, where MacArthur has focused its efforts. The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation and the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation have now joined the partnership as contributors.
