Holding Hands

“We all require and want respect, man or woman, black or white. It’s our basic human right.”

- Aretha Franklin -

Why should you support us financially?

"The future depends on what we do in the present."  - Gandhi.

We live in a time of massive institutional failure, in which we collectively create results that nobody wants. The list is well known: Inequalities, Climate change, Hunger, Poverty, Terrorism, Violence, Destruction of communities, nature, life—the foundations of our social, economic, ecological, and spiritual well-being. These times call for a new consciousness, collaboration and collective leadership capacity to meet these challenges in a more conscious, intentional, and strategic way. The development of such a capacity would allow us to create a future of greater possibilities.

AfroCom platform is a strategic initiative of the Ubujima Foundation to connect everything African through its African Network of Things (ANoT) goal. This allows us to tap our collective capacities and network-effect to pursue sustainable innovation and development of a better Africa and global afro-community.

Fundraising Goal: $50,000

To complete and release AfroCom this summer 2022

 

We've been passionately working on AfroCom since June 2021. As you can see from the video, we have a real working prototype - but there's still a lot to do. With your support, we can work hard to finish the first complete release of AfroCom and get it out into the world. Your backing will help fund:

  • Development time required to complete public beta and ongoing maintenance and additional features for a period of 6 months. We want to ship the first public version of AfroCom by mid-summer 2022.

Any surplus goes into the below

  • Legal stuff. We need to do a couple of important things like register properly as a cooperative organization across the world

  • Operation. We've got tons of work to do to keep AfroCom and its community thriving. These include, but are not limited to, the completion and maintenance of our website, publicity, production standard setup of our open source repository, team building, providing support, partnerships, payables, etc.

Abstract Background

Current stage of development

Everything is in place for us to release confidently and at scale.

For months now, we have been building the MVP, collecting tangible feedback and iterating it for production standards with scalability in mind all along. Our designs are finalized and we are ready to complete and release the beta version of our minimum value product (MVP) to the public.

 

AfroCom has been largely self-funded by the co-founder Daniel Addo-Brown

With the right support, capital and community, we can get this off the ground and running. We are calling on those who feel a conviction to forward this cause to donate and share this project with people who may resonate. Your support is what will make this possible. Let's make this happen together.

How we thank you

Returning the kind qesture is humanely fundamental to us - just as it was for you to support us
