A YOUTH-LED ORGANISATION EMPOWERING AND UPSKILLING YOUNG AFRICANS TO CHANGE THEIR COMMUNITIES & AFRICAN NARRATIVE THROUGH LEADERSHIP, SOCIAL ENTREPRENEURSHIP, AND ADVOCACY.

The Africa Matters Initiative (Africa Matters) was created in April 2015 by Farai Mubaiwa and Reanne Olivier as a platform to empower African youth to reject negative notions of Africa and contribute to tangible change in our communities.

Because we are the ones we've been waiting for.

Africa has the youngest population in the world, and to use this resource to empower the continent we must first re-shape how we see our continent and its potential.
