Millennium Fellowship Project: Mudzi Wanga
Financial institutions, international corporations, government agencies rely on intelligence divisions that they base their decisions on. Correct information ensures mistakes aren't made, lives are not lost, poor investments avoided and the mind deconstructs deception as soon as facts do not line up. That said, information is the most important resource that Africa lacks, in the absence of which a dark and bleak future is inevitable. Mudzi Wanga is a project that has its core motives on establishing a network of like-minded people to collect, and process useful information and above all teach it to the young African people. This will debunk African myths ie: African poverty is inescapable, our natural resources will always turn one against his people and that our ethnic divides are inexorable to justify the subjugation of the continent, thus giving way to confronting actual roots of unemployment, war, underdevelopment, and poverty that plagues Africa. How to do this is by teaching a new generation that before 'civilizing missions' our societies were independent states with trading societies before being transformed into wage labor and cash crop systems. When a generation fully understands the dynamics affecting Africa then purposefully corrective decisions will start to be made.
