About UsAbout Race2Build Afrika

The reFocus Afrika Cultural Exchange (RACE) and Business Internationalization Development (BUILD) is an innovative program designed by reFocus Afrika to help provide and facilitate cultural exchange and business internationalization opportunities for international collegiate and university students, especially HBCU students and black owned businesses from the global diaspora nation to be hosted in any of the Afrikan countries where we operate our programs all year round.

Our Vision is to facilitate and promote mutual understanding between Afrikans and the global Afrikan diaspora by means of cultural, professional, and educational exchanges, to promote international cooperation, business internationalization and foster the development of friendly, supportive, and peaceful relations between Afrikans and the global diaspora nation.

Our Mission is to create an affordable, effective, and efficient platform that provides the global Afrikan diaspora with bespoke opportunities to participate in professional, educational, and cultural programs in Afrika with the aim of discovering potentials, connecting opportunities, and deploying resources for the internationalization of black businesses and ideas and development of the continent.

Race2AfricaHow Our Program

Race2AfricaHow Our Program Works

RACE2BUILD Afrika is conceived to be a 10 day well curated travel experience to Afrika for our international participants. It is designed to offer a first-class, holistic, and Afrocentric experience that is both educational, entertaining, and empowering to all participants. Our participants get to visit and spend time with senior government officials, elder statemen in the country and respected traditional rulers to gain better insights on both the geo-politics of the country and understand the history and cultural heritage of the people. Also, they get to visit notable academic and government institutions, network and enjoy brainstorming sessions with students and staff. We also schedule tours to strategic private sector investments in the city and meetings with the organized private sector to explore the business and investment climate in the country and gain valuable feedback.

Our participants are assured of a complete edutainment experience with invitations to hang out and party with notable celebrities, have a good time with the paparazzi and a taste of the entertainment sector in the country. We make sure all participants have a panoramic view of the city, the culture, and the people, they get to see and experience both the wealth and luxury of the city on one end and the poverty and deprivation of the people on the other extreme, thus creating a balanced perspective of the reality, potentials, and possibilities inherent in the city.

Our goal is that all our participants will return to their home country not only with pleasant memories and lessons that last a lifetime but a deeper understanding, appreciation, and integration of the culture, thereby raising proud reFocus Afrika Ambassadors contributing to the peace, progress, and development of Afrika beyond boundaries!
