We are inspired to train teams which create and stabilize data-supported knowledge systems and which support people across the continent – one village, one town, one community at a time.
We recognize the challenges that the electorate face and we encourage you to donate your time and talent to help us bridge the gap. The future of Africa and the ambitions of its people require our continual collective investment.
We must dare to foster an Africa that is run by Africans. We submit that true African hegemony is non-confrontational as it relies on the African ingenuity and delivers social dividends for the people on a continent overflowing with abundant resources and ideas.
In developing Africa, we face several complex issues which easily tempt us to rely on foreign help. However, IBGAfrica’s research shows that in relying on foreign aid, we merely treat the symptoms of an age-old illness. Restorative health of the continent is owed to the input of Black people who live on the continent and who have significant investiture in the future of the continent which is divorced from purely economic concerns. We recognize, along with other pan-Africanist institutions, that Africa’s cultural richness has been used to divide it. The effect of the Berlin Conference and colonial intervention is a stain that we are wise to reckon with. Most African countries are only marginally successful because they haven’t earned true freedom an autonomy. IBGAfrica’s approach is to take on one local government, one city at a time – if needed – and review budgets, policies, politics and the constructs of the real power brokers as we encourage an end to depreciating colonial administrations.
In supporting the development of the African continent, IBGAfrica is interested in exploratory solutions which help Africa to become more aware of her history, issues and implementable policy solutions. In building an Africa that we can be proud of, IBGAfrica seeks to work alongside its communities to attack the infections at their source with policy research and advocacy needed to create cultural, political, economic, and technological systems which sustain and Africanize the continent.
