“When we began the Arise Afrika project, we had the privilege of having Dr Mrs Nneoma Dika a doctor, mother of 4 as the first Face of Arise Afrika Magazine. She adored the covers of our magazine and  represented this brand well. Arise Afrika  is a non government and non profit organization. It is also a movement geared towards re-engineering the mind set of Africans about sustaining themselves in their immediate communities.

We hope to help our youths  to discover and develop their talents so as to make a positive impact in the society.
We  help them get the education, time and financial freedom that they desire.
Our online news platform is used as to promote social democratic values of Justice, freedom and democracy. Create a reawakening of our strong and sustainable ethical and cultural values.
The future lies with the youths and they need to be steered away from negative influences. Our nation needs to arise from the deep slumber that we have fallen into  and our youths must take our own destinies in our own hands . Nigerians must cooperate with each other to build a better functioning communities through small scale industrial vocations . We must become advocates for better governance and implementation of policies that affect the society.
Arise Afrika seeks to develop and encourage youths to embrace their full potentials in all spheres of human endeavour and not to feel alienated by the present severe socio-economic conditions. The youths must be challenged to recover lost values through the same cooperative dedication and strength that must pull them out of the fangs of poverty.
