I have looked through the website of your new institute. It is a noble idea and the website is well structured. I have also seen the photos of the Board Members and I know some of them. I consider your effort excellent, especially with the experience you have acquired through the years concerning the Africa Mining Vision and all that has been done to try to implement it. I encourage you to work for your idea and will be happy to support you with my expertise and networks. Congratulations!
