Passionate at the core
Our vision is to bring to the fore a vibrant and transformed industry in West Africa within Computer Graphics, Animation and Interactive Media.
Perhaps the biggest aim is to help develop a sense of self reliance for economic empowerment to the creative practitioners via sustainable jobs and business opportunities that will offer a way out of impending poverty and create individual development.
Training and Educationals
The prevalent standard of productions and activities may give a perception of a severe lack in relevant formal development initiatives in the industries in West Africa, this affect the marketability of practitioners and to a large extent makes them unable to survive and then are made economically unsafe within their vocation of choice... which is animation.
However there has been a few noticeable improvements among individuals within the industry at large but which cost them a lot of effort to attain.
We understand that this area is key to industry success and transformation, we like to champion efforts that will be directed specifically to individuals, young learners and such but with emphasis on entrepreneurial development.
Some of the main goals are to:
We aspire to facilitate training and education, making young ones see the professions as a viable way to escape poverty of the mind and body.
We will raise funds which enables us to assist promising young people get into the industry with the least barrier in front of them and we will engage such funds to subsidise production costs for those members of the industry who cant afford this yet ave what it takes to help take our industry higher.

Supporting the West Africa Animation Industry
Over the years, Animation West Africa has grown to become the face of CGI and animation in the West Africa region of Africa. The initiative was conceived around 2008 when the founder had an insight into the operations of other industries in Africa and took it on himself to create something similar for West Africa as a way to pool our industry practitioners together.
We largely rely on your support and donation to help us assist and support deserving individual within the community and help our little efforts move faster. The very little helps!
