What We Do
We help by using our profits on technological development in Africa.
Mainly by providing technological devices and education on these.
We create, collaborate with independent artists and fashion designers to create our high-quality pieces.
We sell our products and books from authors that want to be part of work like this.
With parents from Sao Tome and Principe and raised in Europe, Filipe has an understanding of both worlds.
He knows the gap that exists when it comes to educational and professional opportunity.
To take action he decides to create the brand 'African' aiming to bring access to opportunity through technology development.
Also to give opportunity to artists and creators that would like to have their art on the fashion industry and at the same time be involved in something bigger than the individual.
All profits go to helping the technological development in some African countries.
We are starting our work in Sao Tome and Principe, planning to move to other african countries once we have grow.to a certain point that will allows to sustain the initial work in Sao Tome.
The impact of modern technology
Watch our interview with professor Jorge Araujo from the University of Pernambuco, Brazil.
About the negative impact of modern tech on kids and teenagers.
It is important to always balance the possible good and bad outcomes of moving towards a society where modern technology plays a big role.
Especially in places with such vast nature, where sometimes in the pursuit of a more 'modern' world we can end up destroying our ecosystems.
