Cape Town — "It is my distinct honour to advise you that you have been nominated by Survé Philanthropies to receive an Imagine Award for your immense contribution to Transformation and Empowerment."
Ambassador Harold E. Doley, Jr. is to receive the 2018 Imagine Award for Special Recognition in Social Justice from Survé Philanthropies.
Ambassador Doley's history with South Africa dates back to 1977, when he commissioned a report on the platinum industry. The report analyzed the labor economics of the platinum industry including its potential impact on the apartheid system of South Africa and its possible disruption as a source of platinum for United States strategic defense purposes.
This study is housed at the Library of Congress and Amistad Research Center. The report was reference material for the Central Intelligence Agency and was reviewed in the Wall Street Journal's 'Heard on the Street' column.
Louis Rukeyser interviewed Ambassador Doley on his weekly PBS program, 'Wall Street Week', where Ambassador Doley noted that the United States needed to recognize that of the 500 Standard & Poor's companies, 350 of these companies either had an operation or were dependent upon Africa for their overall business success.
Ambassador Doley placed the first black market maker on the floor of the Johannesburg Stock Exchange and he chaired the investment committee of Southern Africa Enterprise Development Fund (SAEDF), whose board chair was Ambassador Andrew Young, Jr.
Ambassador Doley's most recent involvement with South Africa is his chairmanship of Sagarmatha Technologies Limited's International Advisory Board, composed of distinguished members such as renowned international investor Jim Rogers, Dr. Julius O. Akinyemi whose expertise is crypto currencies, and Dr. Makaziwe Mandela, among others.
Sagarmatha Technologies Limited has the largest valuation of any black owned and operated company.
Unfortunately, due to health challenges, Ambassador Doley will not be able to attend the award eremony in Cape Town. However he is very grateful and humbled by this recognition.
The Inaugural Imagine Awards Ceremony is scheduled to start at 19:00 (SA time) on Friday, 30 November and will be live-streamed via the Facebook page of Survé Philanthropies: https://m.facebook.com/survephilanthropies/
