BOAF inducts Ms. Andrea Holmes Thompkins to Africa’s 10,000 Points of Light
“It is my distinct honour and privilege to congratulate Ms. Andrea Holmes Thompkins, as one of Africa’s shining stars, who has over the last 35 years been in the business of promoting and protecting Africa as a bankable address of doing business.
It cannot be disputed that when we look at the world at midnight, Africa stands out as the darkest of all the continents not because the majority of its inhabitants are black but because absent the natural sunlight, there is nothing much happening during the night.
However, Africa is the remaining frontier whose full potential is yet to be fully unlocked and exploited. The BOAF initiative seeks to project many individuals like you who are playing a positive and constructive role in shaping and defining its character and personality.
We believe that like a bank of money, Africa’s is also bank whose true personality lies in the thoughts and deeds of its peoples whereever they may be located.,”said Mr. Mutumwa Mawere, the Chairman of the www.the1873fm.com and the www.the1873network.org who are both promoting this initiative that will see 10,000 diverse individuals actors in one portal or bank of points of light.
