We are Africa: Africa Day 2015

I am a proud African.

Each year, Africa Day is an opportunity to celebrate African unity and accomplishments, and to reflect on challenges facing the continent.

Africa Day commemorates the founding of the Organization of African Unity (African Union) on 25 May, 1963. The theme for 2015 is “We are Africa.”

Although Africa’s economy continues to grow, it still has a long way to go with:

  • Improving public healthcare and infrastructure
  • Empowering women and girls who represent Africa’s future
  • Eradicating/reducing poverty
  • Raising a generation of incorruptible emotionally intelligent leaders

This Africa Day, I’d like to dedicate a throwback poem called Ma-Afrika. Click the animal montage to read more.
