This is a flagship project for 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 Mandela Washington Fellow. With the desire to go beyond boundaries, Olives Media was originally formed as a non-profit media entity in December of 2010 to explore, enhance and expose the talent of Pan African youth by creating opportunities for linkages between youth, government, non-government institutions, and international media entities.
The company’s agenda has since expanded to become both a non-profit and for-profit advocacy platform for Public Policy and governance issues in Africa, using media, technology and innovation to solve complex public policy challenges in Africa. The company also hopes to launch mega relational database and social media projects / platforms that could revolutionize certain industries globally. We have those in place as we create an infrastructure to launch each of them.
