About Us

Mindful African Initiative is founded on the passion to tackle social and behavioral issues regarding mental well-being through various approaches and techniques. This is aimed to enable individuals to create space for making conscious decisions in the face of current everyday challenges.

Now more than ever, the pace of the world has increased significantly, leaving many feeling disconnected while functioning on autopilot. Mindful African Initiative sets out to intervene in the unconscious routine in communities, intending to tap into as many individuals as possible by equipping them with the skills and ability to find meaning in their existence and lead more mindful and balanced lives.

Our objective is to support individuals in improving and maintaining their mental well-being while mindfully pursuing their meaningful purpose in life.

We aim at building communities with people who are fulfilled, happy and pursuing mindful, meaningful and self-defined objectives.

The scope of Mindful African Initiative is to create awareness on mental well-being while intervening in the unconscious routine seen in communities. We work towards assisting individuals to understand the psychology of their own minds such that they can make a personal commitment to prioritize their mental well-being.

Our approach is simple, we incorporate various tools to intervene, to raise awareness, to lobby and leave no stone unturned. Our messaging is communicated through tailor-made activities as listed above trickled down in levels as follows; Individuals, Communities, Institutions, National bodies and ultimately Africa at large. By so doing, the wave of mental distress is tackled while increasing self-awareness from the grassroots level to all levels.

Building communities with people who are fulfilled, happy and pursuing mindful, meaningful and self-defined objectives.
