Who we are
We are Africans and friends of Africa. Many of us Africans have left the
continent to pursue educational and career opportunities abroad. We recognize that many efforts are in place to improve development
and basic living standards in African countries. Furthermore, we understand that the main obstacle to fulfilling these efforts is

Please note that your information will remain in
our secure database until programs and organizations contact us seeking professional support. When such programs contact us,
we will query our database to find the most suitable candidates for those programs, and then we will contact those professionals
to inform them of the consulting opportunities.
"It is time we put African development into the hands of Africans themselves."
