African Scientists matter not only because African people matter but also because people everywhere in the world will thrive only if science is driven by the best possible talent and initiatives.

Our Vision

To build an empowered African science community by bridging the gap between theory and practice so that every scientist can touch lives through their work.

Our Mission

To mentor and empower African early career scientists, especially women by providing a platform to develop cutting-edge technological skills and a renewed mindset to conduct quality research in Africa.

Our Programmes

Our programme equips early career scientists across Africa through mentorship in order to develop cutting-edge technological skills and learn how to bridge the gap between theory and science.

We also tell the story of African scientists across the globe because we believe that African scientists are doing amazing jobs but their stories are not properly told.
