That Afrika’s potential is mind-blowing is unquestionable. So, how do we move beyond potential to actualization? Vision. We need personal, family, community, national and continental visions that are in harmony with each other and so compelling as to generate the necessary impetus for change. We have no time to waste, as the next seven years […]
The theory of Ubuntu in its multi-dimensional character cannot be defined in one statement, but in practice, it can simply mean “I must love my neighbor as myself”. Why? Because our common good depends on how we treat one another. Will we remember that we are all human, or will we abandon each other at […]
For every tree that is standing, there is a root system holding it For every building we admire, there is a foundation beneath it For every reaction there is an action that came before it And for every noble Afrikan that we admire, there is an Afrikan child to be nurtured Silencing the guns on […]
Our future depends on them. There are no two ways about it. The health of a tree is determined by the health of the seed. As Afrikans, our children are our future. They are the seed that we are planting now whose fruits will either be for the good of Afrika or for evil. We […]

The most disturbing – and possibly the most encouraging – part of all this is […]
This video is the first in our new campaign titled “Do Your Little.” The simple purpose of the campaign is to take the minds and eyes of Afrikans (both home and abroad) and the world at large away from how massive the issues facing the world are and reminding each one that by everyone doing […]
ARE WE REALLY INDEPENDENT? As 17 Afrikan countries mark 61 years since ‘independence’, we ask the question – Is Afrika truly independent, truly liberated and truly free? Much fanfare surrounded the announcements and the continued commemoration of these days by nations across the continent – and our history books are full of accounts about how […]
The story of Afrika goes beyond wildlife, beyond tourism and way beyond natural resources. It is definitely NOT about poverty or the other negative narratives peddled around about Afrika by the biased local and world media.
