African Grey — The African Grey is widely considered to be the smartest of the talking birds, and one of the most intelligent in the animal kingdom overall. Some experts say they approach the ability to speak and relate concepts on the level of a human toddler.
Just like the Africa Grey, Africans are widely considered to be the smartest of the talking continents rather than the action continent. Hence, Africa has been referred to as the "Dark Continent" by many from other continents due to the rate of unemployment which has increased poverty in geometrical progression . According to International Labour Organisation (ILO) 50 percent (fifty-percent) of Africa graduates are unemployed. This has increase the level of poverty to 48.5 percent of Africa population according to World Bank . Despite all these report, the "Untold Truth" is :Africa is rich even in their poverty. In Africa lies great talent, skills and potential. These talents skills and potential when harmonized will generate passion. When these passion are recreated, it will birth ideas. When the ideas are fueled, it becomes achievable goals which end result breeds self employed youths who will create jobs for others to create job for others. If this thread continues, It will reduce poverty to the bearest minimum in Africa. These creative youths will present the "True Africa" to other continents. The Africa that habours great talents, skills and potential despite its reported unemployment and poverty rate. We will present Africa as the "Grey Africa" rather than the "Dark Continent" for indeed Africa is "Grey" and not "Dark".
to breed self employed youths is our watchword. We are doing this through various programs and projects. The interesting part of it is that, you can be a volunteer member, a mentor, you can partner with us as well as support this Idea. Together we can make Africa better than the way it is, Together we can build Africa, Together we can present the real Africa to the world, Together we can present the "Grey Africa".
