Merita Movement

Vancouver, BC, Canada
March 18, 2013

Merita is a traditional 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 means 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; Concurrently grounded in their indigenous roots and yet avian in their dreams and aspirations.

Our intention is to accommodate space, resource and method to breakthrough old cycles and advocate self actualization and growth amongst creative entrepreneurs both individually and collectively.

With our diverse team of movement initiators this vision will grow as we combine our uniquely different expertise and understanding to continue to shift the story of development and reconnect the voice of the youth.
