There is also DigiWorka.com inspired by fiverr.com to create a local platform to train and expose Africans and Nigerians to the emerging new You-Economy and equip us to participate in the global movement, taking advantage of the unique opportunities technology and the internet afford us with the integrity and accountability required to be "World Players" in this market and bringing in the unique African perspective and Ubuntu spirit of relationships while dealing with, and discouraging the reputations associated with fraud and suspicion that have plagued our continent. It's our opportunity to bring about a rebirth of the african renaissance and work ethic!
The recent developments around the country has also led to the development of Homegrown.farm. HomeGrown is "a grow your own food initiative" that has grown out of a need to provide the common man's opportunity to impact the deficit and challenges we face in the enormous waste of resources in the importation of food in our country and contribute to developing ideas and conversations in to developing one of Africa's greatest gift.
Francis Madojemu, also has developed several platforms for ministry which include "I am a good man" a movement and a forum for Men in our community. We help men grow, because we believe the world needs grown up, mature, powerful and God fearing men. We are mentors, friends, brothers, challengers, fathers, and sons for one another.
Another platform is OneCall is a movement of believers who are urgently crying out to God to revive the church and transform the culture. It isn't a church, program, or event. It's a movement of like-minded people, churches, and organizations who agree that our nation needs a dramatic turnaround--but not the kind that comes from different politics, more education, or a better economy.
The 3rd platform, Ministering to the Lord is the beginning of what Francis Madojemu believes would be a global movement, encouraging people to shift from the so-called activities tagged as 'service and work for God' to focusing on the fundamental thing we were made for: worship and communion with God; we have a mandate to stir up and mobilize a generation who minister to the Lord and bring to bear His instructions and will for their lives and nations.

His creativity and unusual style have distinguished him in the various capacities he has served in. Francis Madojemu has been described many times and in many places as a nonconformist and as unorthodox, but truly, "Francis Madojemu is a Man Ahead of His Time!"***
