This is a flagship program of Impactnet Africa (formerly Olives Media). The company was started by Andrew Akelo Omogo, a senior journalism student at United States International University – Africa (USIU Africa) and a 2014 President Barrack Obama’s Mandela Washington Fellow.
Olives Media was formed in December of 2010 as both a non-profit and for-profit advocacy platform for Public Policy and governance issues in Africa; using media, technology and innovation to solve seemingly complex public policy challenges in Africa.
