Support the innovator, as they pedal Africa into an arena of greatness

Support the innovator, as they pedal Africa into an arena of greatness

The innovator pedals the bike that leads to success. Ambitious and self-motivated she passes through the difficult humps of life, determined to reach her destination.

The innovator delays gratification and lays a foundation for the future. She believes by building the right walls, her nation will stand firm in the future. Walls glittered with creative projects, entrepreneurial ideas and technological ingenuity in the large sectors of her nation. Her ideas will benefit generations to come.

Leaders of her nation should steady the ship with the right reforms, so that she can sail through the storm with out any difficulty. The leadership should not absorb the capital for self benefit, but release the capital to ensure the innovator reaches her destination.

As the great continent of Africa awakes, the innovator will lead Africa to her calling and destiny.

The likes of Magatte Wade and William Kamkwamba have begun to pedal the bike that leads to a future of greatness.
