Our mission is to inspire, learn, share, encourage, connect and ignite action for positive change in an engaging and entertaining way.


We collected stories of inspiring Changemakers on the continent, how they started their projects and businesses and how they create positive social impact for their communities. We are currently sharing them through our BlogYoutube and our Podcast.

Changemaker Campus

We engage, train and support organizations working with young people on their journeys to become changemakers and grow in their roles as ethical leaders through the Changemaker Champus.


We documented the e-motorbike expedition, our encounters and the stories we heard from the people we met, to share them in the AfricaX Book. Get the book now and hear about our tales from the road through 20 African Countries.
