“Of course motivation is not permanent. But then, neither is bathing; but it is something you should do on a regular basis.”
― Zig Ziglar, Raising Positive Kids in a Negative World
Africa is the world’s second-largest and second-most-populous continent. Its population is the youngest among all the continents; 50% of Africans are 19 years old or younger!
Today, Africa is most often thought of as a continent in turmoil!
However, Africa is also very capable and starting to get onto its feet as a continent. 7 of the 10 fastest growing economies in the world last year.
Africa is also a continent that should be renowned for the resilience, industry & ingenuity of its people. Alas, this even we Africans sometimes forget, no more so then when confronted with the struggles of our continent.
Inspiration is critical for the future of Africa.
Inspiration leads to Education.
Education, especially in the Sciences, leads to Opportunity.
Opportunity leads to Economic Empowerment.
Educated Economic Empowerment is the mortal enemy of Disease and Poverty…….
Thus, inspiration in general has the capability to be the “big bang” needed to enable the people of Africa to bridge the humanitarian & economic divides and our financial dependence on the rest of the world.
There are few, if any, things more inspirational than Space Exploration!
We hope that the #Africa2Moon Mission will inspire the youth of Africa to believe that “We Can Reach for the Moon” by really reaching for the moon!
