Chairman’s Vision

MADI is a unique African Think Tank and a Social Enterprise that prides itself in the independence of thought in its work.

Its uniqueness is premised on the fact that it is “the” only African owned, African led, international organization whose primary goal is to find well researched and home grown African solutions to the numerous challenges (both African and non-African, man-made and natural in nature) that have characterized the African Minerals Sector for centuries, the challenges and bottlenecks that have hindered Africa from optimally benefiting from her vast natural resource endowments.

Madi Became Affiliate Of Aetrade Market Place (Sokokuu Africa)

eTrade Marketplace (Sokokuu Africa) is a flagship product of the AeTrade Group. This product is a compressive continental ecommerce platform provider for African entrepreneurs in partnership with the African Union Commission.
