well, then. welcome to Amplify...brought to you by aKoma

a paid six month program designed to find, nurture, and unleash world class content creators and storytellers who will reshape and revolutionize the African narrative

Amplify is a much needed boost to the variety and quality of content and stories created in and outside of the continent about Africa. each Fellow is empowered to see beyond their current creative horizons, and tap into bigger and broader possibilities
