Africans have a diverse, rich and powerful heritage that is important to heal ourselves and repair the damage done by neoliberalism to our humanity and environment. Being African, embracing the philosophy of Ubuntu should be a source of our pride.
[Extract from the Kilimanjaro Declaration] 
Dear <<First Name>>
With just over 100 days to go until the #25May2017 launch of the movement in towns and villages across the continent, the momentum is growing and we need as many hands, hearts and minds as you have to offer – the small launch team and I are at capacity. If you have 3 months from March to May 2017 to share, join me as we #Resist the closing of civic space, inspire a shared vision of the #AfricaWeWant and build a Pan-African movement of the future. Send me a mail telling me how you can support the movement.
#AfricansRising Brand Ambassadors
The movement is about an inter-generational conversation, so nominate the up and coming young people and older leaders you want to see as brand Ambassadors for #AfricansRising. People doing good and great things to build the #AfricaWeWant, people making a new future for the continent, it’s people, nations and nationalities. They can be activists or artists or both – they can be from the business sector or your local schoolteacher  – what matters is that the #KilimanjaroDeclaration resonates with them and they want to share the message with others. Make your nominations online in French & English

A big thank you to everyone who responded to the call to share the #KilimanjaroDeclaration locally – this is the simplest action we can take collectively to build this movement – from below and beyond borders. You can now download #KilimanjaroDeclaration in Arabic, English, French, Kiswahili & Portuguese – share it online or print off a few copies and share them with the people around you.
Keep sharing your actions from now until the #25May2017 launch date on Twitter & Instagram and we’ll build the online movement for change, together.

We’re thrilled that Joel Nsadha the 2015 National Geographic People Category Winner has kindly and generously offered his time to steward an inaugural #AfricansRising photography contest. Keep an eye on Facebook for updates.

In Solidarity
