About Us


Making the World a Better Place For All of Us

Our Story


The Panafrican Hemp Association was originally founded by Malobi Ogbechie. As a person that believes in sustainability, he stumbled upon hemp from a very early age. That led to a lot of research in understanding the differences between hemp and its more popular cousin marijuana.

Also having looked at the success of the European and American Hemp Associations, he understood the need to build long lasting institutions for pushing ideas and movements forward. Therefore the Panafrican Hemp Association was born out of a need to represent the African Hemp movement worldwide from both the political and economic spheres of influence.

Our mission is to educate governments, civilians and companies on the many qualities and products that can be made from this versatile plant; From textiles to construction and everything in between, there are thousands of uses for this extraordinary plant. In addition, we advocate and enable healthy investment environment for hemp projects on the continent.

We are growing every day and we hope you can join us on this journey.
