The true stories
Africa – 1000 million people, 1000 million stories, dreams, careers, destinies.
Europe deals with Africa as if it was a homogenous organism with a lot of exotic – and a lot of problems, too. Crisis, catastrophes, communicable diseases – media refer to ‚3 Cs‘, preferably. Also in the view of development cooperation and humanitarian aid these issues remain characteristic for Africa.
But Africa has much more than worn out clichés to offer. Those, who live an African routine with the people, who know their everyday life, can listen to them, look over their shoulders, feel, smell and taste what Africa is about – or at least a little bit of it.
We don’t stress stereotypes, we don’t repeat quotations about Africa you know.
We let Africans get a word in edgewise.
