To my ALFI family,
Africa’s development depends on our justice, determination, perseverance, empathy, solidarity, creativity and generosity to create a climate conducive to the progress of every African . it also depends on an inclusive and sustainable economy that not only benefits people at the top, but serves and supports every hard-working citizen who has hope and respect for the law.
The world is too small and we are all impacted together by our decisions, our convictions and our wishes, so we must think more about building that positive feeling as a collective group for a better and fairer world.
All this seems impossible for the cynics until we succeed together, but by putting ourselves much more in action than in speech.
ALFI ambassadors and volunteers have not only helped usher in that change—they’ve seen it happen up close. That success reaffirms my belief that real, lasting change comes from the bottom up—from people like you. That’s why ALFI has always supported grassroots chapters in communities across Africa and the world, and continues to train passionate individuals to become empowered organizers and be the leaders who will help their communities to move forward. This movement has always been and will always be about encouraging people to get up off of the sidelines of democracy and take action on the issues that they care about.
Keep organizing and never lose hope,
