Discover PLACE

Political Laboratory of Afro-descendant Communities for Everyone

PLACE for Africa is a non-profit organization focused on pan-African networking, education, and critical analysis of the challenges and issues related to sustainable development in Africa. It aims to hasten Africa’s journey towards self-determination through digital means. To this end, it aspires to:

– Have new African narratives rewritten by Africans, for Africans, and the world
– Restore the continent’s significance in debates on its sustainable development and the future of the world
– Redefine the vision of Africa
– Defeat stereotypes about Africa and Africans.

In essence, PLACE for Africa seeks to establish a new way of thinking and writing about Africa in the long term by deconstructing the continent’s representation.


To contribute to the solution of political, economic and social challenges through the emergence of a reference center dedicated to reflection, networking, political education and the promotion of African perspectives.

"We aim to create a digital platform for youth networking and education based on African perspectives."


We want to think of our social reality as one of the global interdependencies, to have a frank look at our continent and the audacity to recognize what we are and celebrate ourselves. We want to better understand the aspirations of new generations in Africa and the Diaspora to contribute to the African renaissance.


To meet this challenge, which consists of reconstructing a new narrative of Africa freed from the racial prejudices inherited from the slave trade and colonization, and to promote an African perspective, we invest in the production of expert works formulating proposals and innovative recommendations for political and socio-economic actors and public opinion. Through activities, we encourage intellectual and civic debate on various issues of importance for the construction of an enterprising Africa, always with concrete conclusions and proposals.


We want all African citizens* to become agents of change in the new Africa. We want to discover and present Africa in action. The idea is to give the African being the possibility to (re)discover references and to recognize its own powers to express its potential.
