    “I strongly welcome what Africa Unbound is trying to accomplish. It is the beginning of something transformational. For far too long Africa has been too dependent on external doctrines, tenets and ideologies. Learning from, and getting inspirations from elsewhere, is of course critical. However there can be no doubt that Africa’s future trajectory will very much depend on its people’s autonomous thinking, innovation, imagination and ownership. Ours is a young continent. Naturally therefore the youth have a key role in that process. Unlocking this potential, the energy, the talent is something central to our work at the African Development Bank. I commend Africa Unbound and its vision. It could not have come at a better time.”

    “When the African Capacity Building Foundation launched a unique facility designed to finance innovative ideas, we were looking to support catalytic, collaborative capacity development initiatives, with leading- edge results. With our aim ‘to build capacity for transformational change’, we found in Africa Unbound, a strategic ally. We share the same belief that Africa’s potential knows no limits - being endowed with immense wealth, talent and capability. When utilised fully, this will propel Africa to becoming the best that it can be. Africa Unbound’s focus on developing the individual provides not only engagement but uplifting possibilities for empowering ethical and conscious leadership, thereby endowing the continent with lasting success.”

    "Africa’s development challenges should be addressed on many fronts. That's why initiatives -such as this one - are so important. If we pool our ideas, our expertise, our social capital, and the values that we share as a people, we can make genuine progress. Africa Unbound’s various engagements and discussion forums are proof that there is a growing awareness and a compelling need, in the face of ongoing global crises, to rethink current models of governance and mutual coexistence. The focus on individual responsibility and empowerment is pertinent at this time when it is critical for Africa to harness its full human potential for the development of the continent. We are proud to support this Movement and would like to encourage others to do the same.”
