“Images play a crucial role in defining and controlling the political and social power to which both individuals and marginalized groups have access. The deeply ideological nature of imagery determines not only how other people think about us but how we think about ourselves”
Pratibaha Parmar, Black Feminism
MOA is a concept that aims to give innovative ideas, projects and products with an African touch more visibility and to protect them. Products and goods with an African touch are those with African relevance in their origin, composition or message. It also includes those products, works and services made by Black People around the whole world. The main goal is to combat the idea that Africa is only a gold mine for raw materials that are exported and processed elsewhere. Rather, Africa is a place where innovative people develop sustainable and scalable products that are competitive on the international market. For us, it is not enough that a product fulfills its primary goal and solves a problem. We define quality as an innovative and creative approach that focuses on full traceability of the origin of the raw materials, fair trade, respect for the environment, workers’ rights and gender equality. These are, among other things, characteristics of the essence of Africa.
