The Social Enterprise

The African Animation Network is a pro-profit, talent-driven social enterprise and open network that endeavors to build a sustainable African animation industry.

Core Mission

The African animation industry has the potential to be self-sustaining. The African Animation Network’s primary objective is to empower African animation creators and producers by providing support and advancing social cohesion within the African animation sector.​

Skills Development

Africa has ​a wealth of untapped human capital that only requires training and/or mentorship to unlock its full potential.

Access to Audience:

To procure finance for Afro-centric animated content requires access to audience across multiple territories or countries in Africa.

Finance:

Once human capital is unlocked via skills development and with access to audience, investors will more likely finance projects in Africa with a potential ROI.
