THE CHALLENGE

In April 2020, Africa came under threat of the pandemic, disrupting lifestyles, stagnating economies and pushing African communities to frustrating extremes never before experienced.

African governments spontaneously went into action to help contain the spread of the pandemic in Africa. However, their efforts alone are not able to adequately contain the pandemic.

Hence the need for non governmental organizations and individuals to intervene in the fight to kick covid19 out of Africa.

THE SOLUTION

Organization for Leadership and Strategy Development OLSD, in collaboration with the Africa Center for Disease Control ACDC and In For Africa Festival, is launching the Kick Out Covid Africa #KOCA Virtual Concert.

This event will enlist the talents of musicians, movie personalities, entrepreneurs, comedians and social influencers at home and in the diaspora to lend their voices to fight against Covid19 in Africa. The concert is also designed to raise funds to provide the following support initiatives to Africa’s affected communities:
