A US-based organization, known as Roseau Docteur (Doctors Network), is changing the negative stereotypes given to black people around the world, especially in the US.
The organization was created by a Nigerian, Dr Alexander Oladele, which is said to be focused on anyone irrespective of their location, The Sun reports.
In his interview with the newspaper, Oladele said since the network started in 2015, it has changed into a community of professional people doing all they can to affect their world.
He further said that the main goal of forming the organization was to step into cases where a lot of blacks were being maltreated and in some cases killed around the world.
Though known as Doctors Networks, the group was launched to showcase the positive achievements people in various fields are having in order to portray the image of blacks around the world.
The founder of the organization also said that the network has been a great help in providing employment opportunities and scholarships to students into colleges and also aide in the area of mentorship.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that a Lagos and San Francisco-based financial technology (fintech) startup, Flutterwave, has been able to raise $35 million (N12,652,500,000) as it announced that it will be partnering with Worldpay FIS to facilitate payment in Africa.
The CEO, Olugbenga Agboola, of the fintech startup will be investing the fund to grow tech business in many countries.
With that also, the company will be expanding its operations to build more payment products and services.
It should be noted that Flutterwave launched in 2016, and has since then given clients an easier API that allows them to work with the organization to make bespoke payment applications.

In 2019 alone, the company was able to facilitate 107 million transactions that were worth $5.4 billion (N1,952,100,000,000).
One of the works they did was the facilitation of Cardi B’s performance ticket sale in Nigeria. With their collaboration with Worldpay, they were able to process African payments.
“With this partnership, any Worldpay merchant in Europe or the US can accept any African payment. If someone goes to pay Netflix with an African card, it just works,” Agboola said.
