Project Update

AfricaKitoko.com lets anyone access powerful, positive rich visual content about Africa and African Heritage. We aim to gradually become the go-to web destination for the African-american and Afro diaspora community to learn about African Heritage and Africa through exceptional visuals, a digest form of communications compared to long reads.

Progress on objectives

-120 new visuals/illustrations/GIFs are produced
-We scale the distribution and discoverability of our visuals and GIFs to 20,000 new persons/viewers by enlisting the support of influencers and better outreach via our social networks
-We implement the web monetization standard and dedicate an explainer page on our website

Key activities

-Web monetization is up and running on our platform
-120 new visuals/illustrations/GIFs were effectively realized
-According to Google Analytics we attracted 26,183 users (visitors) and 81,587 page views as of July 17th, 2021; with the USA being the top traffic country
-We added a mention of COIL support on the explainer page on our website https://africakitoko.com/about-us-press-center/

Communications and marketing

We run over 20 special interviews with African american and Afro influencers to boost awareness about our platform such as this one:

What’s next?

Further analyzing our data, there is great interest in visualizing sports. We may build more content on that.

What community support would benefit your project?

Spent some time on the site, really loved the layout, how you used WM and the graphics themselves. Curious where you go next! There are a bunch of projects and energy happening across Africa, please let us know if you want any introductions.
