The vision of Home Advantage Africa is to create opportunities for Pan-African Millennials to network and dialog on how to be useful and do something good for their respective local communities so as to deliver the future and leave an incredible legacy for the generation next. The end game is to have Millennials conquer their locality and the world at large.
