The African continent is home to the largest youth population in the world. With the increased access to information and new platforms to mobilize, youth across the continent are fighting to address corruption and create ways to contribute to the growth of their specific country. This revolution is one that cannot be ignored; the African continent has abundant resources and limitless potential that generally goes unacknowledged and continues to be exploited by outside actors. Africa’s youth across the diaspora are eager to help their nations achieve the long overdue potential that experts have been predicting for decades. Here in Washington, we’ve decided to join the revolution by supplementing the educational pursuits of young professionals and cultivating them to unlock the future of Africa, now.
Africa Now is here to mobilize a community of passionate and active young professionals that are committed to building a sustainable future for Africa and enriching their global perspective. Through social media and quarterly follow-ups, we will coordinate and maintain a network that can learn, share, and collaborate on relevant ideas. The relationships built between participants from diverse academic disciplines will eventually yield new foundations, entrepreneurial ventures, group sponsored initiatives and ideas that will translate into action, not only in Seattle but across the world.
