Advocate. Educate. Engage. For our Communities.

Speak Up Africa is an advocacy and communications organization that facilitates African leadership and ownership in tackling critical issues affecting the continent. 

Our Mission

We are convinced that a prosperous and stable Africa begins with active and engaged citizens; and with leaders that accelerate transformational change. Thus, we gear towards filling the long-lasted gap of African voices being excluded from the international march towards progress. 

Our Theory of Change

Speak Up Africa’s team based in Dakar and New York has vast experience and networks both in the public and the private sector. Our advocacy and communications model effectively leverages media, celebrities and leadership to mobilize all segments of the African societies to drive the progress on the continent. 

Our Vision

By 2020, Speak Up Africa will have initiated a fundamental change in the region that stems from empowering the affected societies by facilitating their ownership of all stages of the development process. We will have provoked an engaged citizenry to call for transformative leadership on education and health, and will have enabled a participatory environment that sustainably changes socio-cultural behaviors in Africa.
