It was to share solutions that would help the world think and look beyond the negative impact of the pandemic.

Mr Musah Frimpong, Founder and Chief Executive Officer, Duapa Africa said as millions of people across the world remained under lockdown due to the disturbing effects of the novel coronavirus, they saw an opportunity to send strong messages of positivity, solidarity and hope to people across the world especially across Africa and its Diaspora.

He said, they believed there was life beyond coronavirus that, “we could all live, and more than just being afraid of the virus, spreading fake news and social distancing.

“We could find innovative ways to help fight the pandemic and prepare ourselves to rebuild for ourselves and future generations a better Africa and world when we defeat the pandemic”.

He said the project featured Experts and professionals from across the world including; countries like Kenya, Egypt, Chad, Jamaica, The Commonwealth of Dominica, China, Ghana, Togo, Brunei Darussalam, Uganda, Washington DC, South Africa, Ethiopia, Nigeria, Tunisia, among others.

Mr Frimpong noted that through online platforms like Zoom, Facebook, Instagram, Whatsapp, Twitter, YouTube, WeChat and LinkedIn among others, the project has been able to directly reach and impact over 200,000 people globally (Africa, Asia, Europe, the Americas and Australia).

He said some topical issues discussed include; The Changing World of Work, Digital Marketing to help people and businesses, Talent and Human Capital Development in Africa.

A Global Young Change maker’s session was also held, where the young leaders discussed several solutions on how COVID-19 could be addressed through global solidarity and cooperation.

According to Mr Frimpong, the project also dedicated the whole month of May (Africa Month) to discussing African development issues and solutions, adding that there were also sessions on Africa’s decade (2020-2030) socio-economic transformation and how to seize it as Africans’ and African Integration.

He said the last episode of the first phase of the project focused on how the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA) could fuel the creation of more unicorns (a company worth billion dollars) across Africa and the role of the private sector in creating more unicorns across Africa, and boosting trade, investments and job and wealth creation across Africa inspired by the AfCFTA.
