About Us

We are a non profit social innovation enterprise with the aim of bridging the KNOWLEDGE, CULTURAL and NETWORKING gap among the next generation of African youth on the continent and the diaspora. Our name “Hojja” is deduced from the Kiswahili word “Hoja” that simply means “to move or Movement ”. This word literally explains our drive to initiate a movement that’s not only physical but intellectual and cultural. To us, movement means, breaking the barriers, creating opportunities, and cultural exchange.

Our Mission is to make Africa knowable and reachable to all African in the area of tourism, education, and business
