About Merita Movement
Merita is the original name for the continent known today as Africa. It is still currently used by ritual societies around the continent. The original Medu (hieroglyphics) word when translated reads Meri – Beloved and Tah – Land; Our Beloved Land
Merita is a passion driven movement comprised of individuals who desire to see young people on the continent of Africa empowered, unified and strengthened. Our intention is to accommodate space, resource, method and mentorship to breakthrough old cycles and advocate self actualization and growth amongst creative entrepreneurs.
Merita exists to work along side youth in various communities throughout Africa establishing a bold conversation, recognizing the purpose and importance of each individual. The vision grows as Merita’s diverse team works together in combining our uniquely different expertise to continue to ignite the voice of the youth.
The core values of The Merita Movement are to reconnect people to their roots, awaken dreams to full potential, restore the vision for a new story in Africa and to unify culture through a creative approach to education and community building.
