We are delighted to confirm that the documentary will be narrated by the charismatic broadcaster Henry Bonsu, and directed by the award-winning film maker Colin Izod.

The project of APA, which will be pitched alongside chosen proposals, is called Think Africa.  The aim of this project is to enable APA to operate fully as a thinktank engaging and educating African communities and key stakeholders on topics that are of relevance to African peoples.


4. How can people participate in Pitching Africa?

It is still possible for people to participate either as philanthropists, investors or as trainers of the candidates. Philanthropists and investors may choose to appear in the documentary or have the ideas pitched to them off camera. Trainers will be required to give public speaking and other tips to candidates, and they should be prepared to be filmed.
