Access to Food, Energy, Education, Health Care, Housing, Economic Opportunities and a Clean Environment are equally available to everyone independent of their country of birth, gender, race, age or resources.

To move from “what is”, to what “can be” requires dreamers, innovators, risk takers, humanists, and the collective will to manifest it. Impact Amplifier believes that African entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs are most fit for this purpose.  With over 40 years of collective experience in developing social and environmental innovations, we have designed our business to build the solutions and ecosystems required to enable this community to thrive.
