This is a flagship program 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 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. The company, through ImpactLab, also hopes to launch mega relational database (social media and eCommerce) platforms that could revolutionize certain industries globally. We have those in place as we create an infrastructure to launch each of them.
