Africa Empowerment Communities

This is a model that uses a roll out of development ideas from a point or locus outwards. It is our belief that those of us from Africa and are living in USA can cause change for the better back in Africa. We are determined to get our head out of the sand and get our hands dirty.

This is what "Africa Empowered Communities" stands for.

Agriculture, Road Networks and Institutions

Please do not get disappointed. Our platform is not about depicting poverty, wars, hunger, famine and all the stuff that seems default whenever one talks about Africa.

Africa has potential and this is in form of its people, its land, its animals, its crops, its leaders, its social organization and ability to network.

We hope that this is what can be conveyed in the 21 st Century.
