The idea of further lifting the economic and social condition of the Black people and deprived communities the world over, and especially right here in Africa and throughout the developing world, is by no means new, but it must be continued for development to thrive and progressive change to take root.
Names such as Kwame Nkrumah of Ghana; Patrice Lumumba of Ivory Coast; Jomo Kenyatta of Kenya; Nelson Mandela of South Africa; Kenneth Kuanda of Zambia – along side many other noteworthy Black African leaders – these names will forever live in history as men of vision and courage who led their people with pride, and looked to forge in their minds that the way to truly rise and be respected as a people is to look within themselves and develop communities and societies with our own resources.
This message is still a powerful message that is no less significant, as we consider the plight of African and developing people’s the world over. Thus, it becomes even more paramount that movements be instituted and supported that will provide programmes to change mentalities within these communities, so that the change we seek begins with us.
Here in Ghana, West Africa, the 2017 Wealth Masters Summit has concluded. It was two days of the most profound gathering of minds and exchange of ideas on how we as a people of Black Origins – both Ghanaian and non-Ghanaian - can work together to lift each other both economically and socially.
The Wealth Masters Summit's message here in Ghana is that growth and development is within us. There is nothing resource wise that any other community, or groups of peoples of various ethnicities the world over, have, that Black people and Africa does not possess except for one thing. That one thing is Collective Unity of Purpose.
Here in Africa, there are resources aplenty that everyone knows should be for the edification and the development of Africa and her people. Yet still it is seen that much of these resources are exploited by outside forces who once were the instruments of colonisation here on the continent.
It is true that many partnerships have been formed where Black Africans own a share of these resources and also benefit. But the question to be asked is whether enough of Africa’s wealth stays in the country, and is used to benefit her people more through education, healthcare, housing, social programmes and sound structures for economic improvement?
There is no doubt that there is work to be done, and there is a process of empowerment that must be continued so that value and wealth is created amongst communities here in Ghana; throughout wider Africa; in the Caribbean, UK and North America - all these avenues where Black people reside, and in some aspects are still living looking outside of their communities for success and growth.
Wealth Masters Group International is a movement that will be positioning various programmes across Ghana, Africa, and the international community to help foster growth through mindset change, training and other such programmes. Wealth Masters Group International is about impacting mindsets and contributing to change.

The many movements for progress around the world now more than ever are relevant, and should seek more to increase their visibility for impact.
As reggae singer Bunny Rugs (deceased) stated: "People sing the same song around the world. A song of love to touch the hearts….Ooh, yes, the hearts of everyone."
Thus their are commonalities of purpose that can lend towards developing a global movement to build communities of prosperity.
