The realization that daily the inequality gap keeps widening, with the civic space shrinking due to sundry reasons, more women and young persons are locked in poverty and need for want, we therefore recognize that for global peace to be sustained and migration curtailed, young people and women must be trained and equipped with the right attitude, skills set and capacity to create wealth, speak up against all forms of violence and victimization and most importantly play critical role in decision making process. Therefore at HipCity Innovation Centre we commit ourselves to ensuring free and democratic access to information, sharing with groups that have difficulty to access.
We accept the responsibility to influence and cooperate with
governmental institutions so long as the actions are approved in a democratic
manner and are not in any used as a tool for victimization of the people.
We recognize education as an inherent right of each human being. We defend
the principle of free and public education so as to guarantee the accessibility
of education to all in order not to impede the privatization of knowledge. We
commit ourselves to promoting skills, knowledge transfer to help guide more
youths and women into sustainable businesses, while engaging with policy
shapers to make legislations that would guarantee that every human has
equal rights and opportunities to become the best they can be through their
imagination and innovation without any impediments or exclusion.

Our mission is to help everyone especially youths have the right mind-set to create wealth through skills, coexist, value human rights, respect the rule of law, realise their full potential, and meaningfully become tools for positive sustainable development.
