Efforts to protect African resources have gained momentum. Proudly Afrikan is about preserving our art, culture, and heritage.
Celebrating the extraordinary
We are dedicated to the long-term preservation, examination, documentation, preventative care, treatment and restoration of modern and traditional African art. Our mission is to build a state-of- the-art conservation laboratory that will continuously refine conservation procedures unique to the care of African art.
Celebrating our ethnic diversity
African culture has made the greatest contribution to our development process as a people. Our rich and diverse traditions have always been passed on from one generation to the next by way of word-of-mouth, a process often known as ‘Oral Tradition.’ In the age of globalization however, we have found more vigilant ways of preserving our way of life.

As rich as African soil is, we import food that leads to the genocidal destruction of our future. African tradition has always been accompanied by the promotion of social welfare and health among the population. Proudly Afrikan promotes a culture of eating to live through health education.
While many elementary and middle school educators teach their students about Africa, finding age-appropriate primary sources and related activities is often a challenge, particularly when looking at early African cultures. Others frame Africa as a monolithic culture frozen in time, ignoring the reality of this diverse and rapidly modernising continent. Our educational resources teach our history and our value.
Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.
I'm going to be me as I am, and you can beat me or jail me or even kill me, but I'm not going to be what you want me to be.
I believe that here in South Africa, with all our diversities of colour and race; we will show the world a new pattern for democracy. There is a challenge for us to set a new example for all. Let us not side step this task.
Throughout history, it has been the inaction of those who could have acted; the indifference of those who should have known better; the silence of the voice of justice when it mattered most; that has made it possible for evil to triumph.
God and Nature first made us what we are, and then out of our own created genius we make ourselves what we want to be. Follow always that great law. Let the sky and God be our limit and Eternity our measurement.
The size of your dreams must always exceed your current capacity to achieve them. If your dreams do not scare you, they are not big enough.
The conqueror writes history, they came, they conquered and they write. You don't expect the people who came to invade us to tell the truth about us.
In the course of history, there comes a time when humanity is called to shift to a new level of consciousness, to reach a higher moral ground. A time when we have to shed our fear and give hope to each other. That time is now.
