The folowing quote says it in a nut shell
"I also would like Africans in the U.S., Europe and elsewhere to do more. It will certainly take raising the awareness of Africans in these different countries, and helping them get more resourceful for them to do more. I feel more can be done from where we are to assist in raising such awareness, and to encourage people to use the working models of entrepreneurship and community development to extend to Africa and elsewhere. It is good that some of us are in a ‘slightly better’ position where we can earn more to be able to extend. Some of us have gotten our governments to start trading and supporting African causes. It takes ongoing work to raise awareness, and this also entails showing a commitment to development from right where we are. People and governments will not take us seriously if we do not have experience and working models that they can see. Those who already have extensive resources can always contribute to African causes, but many of us have to mobilize support, and raise awareness to get things done. The models and ideas for assistance come from the successful work we do in our own areas, although we draw these ideas from all around".
This simple means that; we have to act local, in order to have a global effect. Hence, we have to start organising where we are located; using the resources which we have available, or can be accessed.
We have at our disposal the computer, software and the internet; along with our individual skills and professions; I think we can come together and establish an economic and financial foundational base to positively impact both ourselves and InI peoples; starting hear on this board and forum. I am of the view, as you know that we can network and integrate our skills for the financial benefit of all of InI. With that said, I will proceed to start a new thread; asking one and one to list all their skills, professions and occupation; with the objective of generating income and other funds for the alleviation of InI peoples' sufferation and downpression. I proceed under the assumption that I have a concensus.
