Endimi elima emparangwa etaha. (Haya)
Kila mtu ana kipawa chake. (Swahili)
Individuals have different talents. African Proverb (English)

Africans have the ability and the skills to create the future they desire. In order to create, it is necessary to come into contact with one’s true identity. This knowledge of self allows for people to pursue their passion and purpose in life. Clarity of purpose infused with passion inspires and fuels great ideas allowing creativity to reach its full potential and people can positively impact their own lives and those of the people around them. Whilst ideas may seem small and simple in the beginning they, in the long-run, can change and greatly impact our communities, nations, and the world over.

“We believe that in the long run the special contribution to the world by Africa will be in the field of human relationship. The great powers of the world may have done wonders in giving the world an industrial and military look, but the great gift is still to come from Africa – giving the world a more human face”. 

Steve Biko, political activist and author, 1970
