Our mission is encapsulated in the name we bear; BuntuAfrik. Buntu is derived from Wolof word (language spoken mainly in Senegal) to signify the entry way, or more specifically the “door”. Hence, BuntuAfrik can be translated as “The door to Africa.” What a fitting name for a site that purposes to “Open” the African Continent to the rest of the world!
Our mission therefore encompasses the need to provide substantial contribution in all aspect of life; social, cultural and alike, with keen perceptive power of the primary actors. Africa is filled with talents, potentials and resources. But often time, these talents go unnoticed or misdirected and even wasted simply because of the lack of information, or opportunities, and at time, the absence of structures (media) capable of channeling these assets. Information by all account is the power that is fueling the world economy today; and being in possession of the right information at the right time is invaluable. BuntuAfrik must become a repository of information that allows the African continent to provide information on demand.
