Our vision is to create a direct selling and business partnership between African entrepreneurs and European consumers. A platform that would generate sustainable income for African entrepreneurs to develop their own communities and future of African youths.
The problemThere is a huge problem of unemployment in Africa and we can see the results reflected in the dangerous migration experiences that African migrants are facing right now. Take the Libya situation for example. Many of these migrants come from an economic poor background and have given up trying to build a future in their communities. Nigeria and Ghana are most affected by this problem right now. Many end up stranded in the north of Africa. Over 700T Nigerians have embarked on this journey and thousands have died in this process.
Europe is geographically close to Africa and can direct its daily consume to create a better environment for African youths. Europeans are becoming more aware and are open to a sustainable and empowering alternatives. We want to bridge this gap and create a platform for both Europeans and Africans to liaise on an equality and respectful business partnership.
