Afrographique

I have just discovered this amazing blog Afrographique, which features African raw data. Ivan colic whom created Afrographique takes raw data and makes it interesting and understandable for everyone. Presenting it in a fun and visually appealing way, the creator describes it as "exciting and digestible". There is so much data that is released on Africa regularly and i think this is a brilliant way to share it.

Daraja Academy

Education, education, education, is the future of Africa! and this video just brilliantly highlights that. Young people coming from disadvantaged backgrounds being given a hope for the future, through the acquistion of knowledge, is what africa is need of. The passion for education in the students is moving and inspiring, if only Daraja academy could be replicated throughout the whole continent.

ONE

ONE just recently launched a new media campaign featuring some well known names such as Bono, Idris Elba, Jessica Alba and George Clooney. The campaign is trying to get as many people to sign the petition to be handed to the G20 world leaders this November.... Hmmm so i have my doubts about the whole campaign and whether it will really change the leaders attitudes or increase real commitment but at least it raises awareness that there is still an ongoing famine in the Horn of Africa.

What do you think......
