“Our focus is Africa, given the teeming young population – the continent is branded as the youngest continent, with ever growing population, yet, extremely poor in all social dimensions.

“Both China and India have explored and exploited their huge population into becoming global power house – China is the second economy after the US, while India is being forecasted to be third, over taking Japan and Germany, very soon. Why, because they invested in their people, and they are now reaping the dividends. Our aim is to encourage organizations and countries on the continent to focus on their people and turn their labour force into Human Capital for sustainable growth”. He stated.
