Many in the world are heralding the dawn of an “African Millennium”. Culturally and politically, Africa is poised to undergo more changes and wield more influence in the world than ever before. However, much of what is visually documented about Africa is a view from outside, seen through eyes that are not African and, in some cases, not Africa friendly. Only if Africans can present their stories to the world will Africa gain renewed respect and authentically express her promising future. Our mission is to provide a global voice for Africans to tell their own stories to the world.
Codewit.com is a news department of Codewit Global Network. An international grassroots Movement which aims to promote youth education, democracy and human rights in Africa. The service maintains international news, features and analysis from Africa and has correspondents in almost 10 countries. The organisation believes that sound education would teach people particularly African youths to understand and challenge the present problems in their communities and search for an African solution.
Codewit Global Network also use technology in innovative ways to further social change or voice our dissent on the wide range of issues affecting Africa. We believe that mental emancipation is a key foundation to realizing African economic determinism and political freedom.
To achieve this,we discuss extensively issues that will benefit the growth of African continent. We campaign that every African youth should be given an equal opportunity of obtaining basic education as a key weapon to fight for a new Africa. We promote and facilitate the development of an active inter-related, progressive African community through networking, culture and electronic technology. Our organization draws its inspiration through the formation of strategic alliances with other sectors of society facing oppression, such as our African society, racial minorities, women, youths, peasant and other dispossessed people in our continent.
As the world moved on with the rapid growth of information and technology revolution which is the driving force of the process of globalization, Codewit Global Network employs this resource as its primary medium to educate and provide her audience especially Africans with up-to-date information and knowledge that is necessary to prepare our next generation for a better Africa. “Online Technology Gives Codewit Activist Real Power to Change the Status Quo – Without Taking to the Streets”
