How We Started

Ayina Think Tank is founded on the belief that young people should be given voice to express their opinions , opportunity to innovate, the chance to learn through mistakes and use their competences or talents together with the already available documented experiences to reinvent greater and positive future for our world.

In July 2009, the forty fourth President of the United States of America made a visit to Accra as his first trip to sub-Saharan Africa after taking office in the same year. His historical speech pointing to the simple premise that "Africa's future is up to Africans" resonated with so many people around the world including the future founder of Ayina Think Tank, Brother Damien Mouzoun who was then recovering from his painful exile to Ghana which he had started at the age sixteen as a result of his advocacy for quality education within his native nation Benin. During his later service as Advisor for "The Young African Leaders Initiative (YALI)" from its beginning in 2010 to 2013, Mouzoun saw the need to build Africa's Global Research and Advocacy Laboratory of Servant Leadership, Progressivism and environment protection in the current Wisdom age as Humility symbol with Logo made out of fractional Triangle and Circle to develop informed, responsible, change makers around the sustainable development goals.

Our Values

Very Few People Changed The World By Sitting On Their Couch

Think Tank

We create social and intellectual settings that force people to argue and become aware of their own biases. We provide a platform to introduce new ideas and provoke public debate on the critical issues of the day and in so doing expand the scope of the debate.

Intellectual Tourism

Our key task is to enhance the promotion of tourism, knowledge, traditions and national culture (tangible and intangible assets) in order to foster economic growth; increase the value added; increase productivity, competitiveness and innovation capacity, foster social development.

Pan-African Social-Enterprise of Mentoring

Our function for the mentee is broken into two:

a. The career- related function establishes the mentor as a coach who provides advice to enhance the mentee's professional performance and development.

b. The psychosocial function establishes the mentor as a role model and support system for the mentee.

Why ex-French colonies are joining the Commonwealth

Gabon and Togo have moved to strengthen their diplomatic armoury in a bid to ease their reliance on France. They have been admitted to what was originally founded as a club of former British colonies but has been steadily diversifying its composition. These two small francophone African nations are now the Commonwealth's 55th and 56th members. Rwanda joined in 2009 and Mozambique came into the group in 1995. None of these states had particular past historical ties to the UK....
