Join us in the journey to rediscover Africa. Lets share with the world what a wonderful place it really is.
As part of the memoirsofakenyan family we urge you to drop in frequently and hop into the discussions on the positive aspects that the continent has to offer. Lets make this fun and lively, send in your pictures, share your experience and do tell your stories. No contribution is too insignificant or too vague. Anything goes! Let us by all means, celebrate Africa!
A lot is constantly reported about Africa. There is persistent media coverage and advertisements on the issues faced by its people; wars, famine, poverty to mention just a few. What many do not realise, is that Africa is a sensational continent.
Our intention is not to argue with the numerous studies and reports that have shown over the years the problems faced in the continent. They really do exist. However, just like there are two sides to a coin, Africa has both challenges and serenity. So much is being said and done about the negatives but not many people reflect the good. Perhaps it is because conflict sells better than good tidings, but the bottom line is Africa needs to be rediscovered.
So that is our goal, to rediscover Africa! To create fresh awareness for the positive attributes of the continent. Things such as decent roads, advancing technology, education, big cities, beautiful sites, water bodies, wildlife and the wonderful culture of the people. We resolve to counter the negativity, to reduce our ignorance and most of all, to celebrate the beauty of a developing continent.
