The AfroChampions Initiative has been founded by prominent
private and public sector Africans in recognition of the fact that
the emergence of homegrown pan-African multinational companies
represents something very special in the history and struggle of Africa;
and that we must act together to promote and harness their success for
the continent’s transformation and global leadership.

The AfroChampions Initiative primarily aims at
promoting investment - especailly intra-african
investment - in transformative projects for the
continent.

MORE ABOUT

We petition that, as African heads of state make
progress on the continental free trade area, this is
the time for strong political will and action on the
African passport; for without free movement of
Africans there can be no free trade and no
development. We hereby request our governments
to act on the #AfricaPassportNow! Join our
movement and sign our petition!

#AfricaPassportNow!
