Riding the amazing momentum of the many QNET tours in East and West Africa in 2016, QNET Regional Director of Africa Krishna Kumar, QNET Senior Legal Officer Tim Harney, and the QNET Business Development Team went on an intensive tour of the African continent to learn all they could to better the QNET business in this region.
The tour included learning about the local realities, organising roundtable discussions with key government officials, meeting with stockists, finding suitable logistics service providers for the region, spending quality time with network leaders, and giving back to the communities they visited through various CSR activities. QNET also had the opportunity to meet with journalists to share more information about the QNET business opportunity, and QNET’s concept of Absolute Living with special emphasis on QNET’s world-class quality health and wellness products.
QNET network leaders of Uganda were honoured with a meet and greet with Uganda Minister of Trade and Commerce Amelia Anne Kyambadde, who later posted a message about the meeting on her official Facebook page. In Cameron, QNET met with the Minister of Youth Affairs and Civic Education Mounouna Foutsou, who was very keen to partner with QNET in order to work towards the common goal of development of entrepreneurial spirit among the youth of Cameron. In Mali, we have the privilege of meeting the Attorney General of the Chamber of Commerce in order to work on direct selling guidelines in the country, and develop the potential of network marketing as a legitimate business opportunity.
QNET Senior Legal Advisor Tim Harney and QNET Head of Operations (Africa) Arti Asawa also visited Senegal and Tanzania, two new growing markets, to discover their market potential, to educate IRs and people interested in the QNET opportunity about QNET’s products and a broad overview of QNET as a network marketing company. Tim also attended meet and greet events with various government officials in both the countries to strengthen QNET’s vision for entrepreneurial development.
Throughout the whole tour, QNET proudly upheld the core value of RYTHM (Raise Yourself To Help Mankind) through a variety of charitable activities initiated by RYTHM Foundation, a non-profit dedicated to educating, inspiring, and working with others to create a brighter future for those in need.
Through an exciting partnership with Worldreader, a non-profit organisation providing e-reading facilities and digital books to underprivileged schools in Sub-Saharan Africa, RYTHM Foundation sponsored 50 Kindle e-readers immaculately pre-loaded with 100 books. The e-readers were presented to Achievers Ghana, a development project in one of West Africa’s biggest slums.
In Bamako, Mali, the team donated HomePure Filtration Systems to the Public School of Sabalibougou, a school located in a very disadvantaged area of Bamako, where access to clean and safe drinking water is very difficult. The HomePure water filters will serve over 5,000 underprivileged children.
QNET also commemorated World Health Day in Ivory Coast by donating HomePure water filtration systems to Pouponniere of Yopougon Attie, an infant shelter owned by the Ivory Coast Government that caters to over a 100 orphans, with 75 being houses in their premises.
