Africa

Harnessing the power of everyday heroes.

“The time has come when our young people need to create movements not revolutions. You see the problem is that revolutions idolize a face, whereas movements don’t. Yes, revolutions have helped Africa progress a lot in the past, but revolutions have also created dictators. With our media and social technology we have democratized information to create movements, and movements harness the power of everyday heroes.”
