Although he is native and resident of Montréal-Nord, I met David in Ahuntsic Park with his friend Adrian, who lives in Pierrefonds. The two friends got to know each other through a cousin of David.
David told me about a project that came to his mind in January of this year. He is the initiator of a group which prepares the launch of a Web portal called NUWLA for September 21. A corporation was registered for this purpose and small investors of African descent from various cities in North America are financing it. Adrian, a graphic designer and Webmaster graduated from Vanier College, is part of this group.
In the words of David, NUWLA is aimed to the « black conscious community ». From what I understand, NUWLA is intended to be a place where the active members will post blogs on a variety of subjects such as health, education and business, but with an emphasis on promoting purchases and investments within in the black community around the world.
This portal should also be used to host individual web pages. For now, it has only a Web page with a countdown to the launch date and a presence in social media. Simply type NUWLA on your favorite search engine. This is a project that seems ambitious.
As agreed with the young men, I give you the addresses of their websites. You may get an idea of he success of their efforts this fall at:
Good luck to David and Adrian!
