Welcome – Bienvenue
A warm welcome to our community and our website
The office of the PTPI Africa Council is in Brussels, Belgium, and is a shared administrative location with PTPI Europe. The officers that serve the continent of Africa, our African Executive Committee (AEC or Council) are all established members living and working locally. They bring the expertise and practical experience we need to be effective change agents at a grass-roots level.
There are 54 countries in Africa today, according to the United Nations. The population of Africa is 1,332,277,026 as of Wednesday, April 1, 2020, based on the latest United Nations estimates. Africa’s population is equivalent to 16.72% of the total world population. Africa ranks number 2 among regions of the world (roughly equivalent to “continents”), ordered by population.
We are a member-driven community, supported by volunteers and through private funding. We operate like a cooperative, and we take advantage of best practice from business and technology. PTPI has a strong global presence. We also have a local reputation as a reliable social partner and support to business.
A key driver for People to People International is that we love people – we are people fanatics. We know that a network of culturally knowledgeable citizens will be an active force in sustaining a peaceful world.
Our Chief Executive (CEO) is Merrill Eisenhower Atwater, great-grandson of the former US President.
