What African country had economic growth of 8% since 2010? Reduced the percentage of people living in poverty by 14%? Buried 1,000 miles of fiber optic cables to jump-start a 4G network? Is ranked 32 out of 189 worldwide as a place that's easy to do business? Here's the answer: http://bit.ly/1hdJOVG

It’s time to move beyond “celebrating” the progress we have made in women’s rights and start doing something about consolidating women’s rights.  Nowhere is that more important than in Africa. It’s time to empower and reward women by acknowledging their importance and by focusing on and supporting what women do.  Start with education. - See more at: http://bit.ly/1f6Lcsh

Recent headlines on the tragic violence in the Central African Republic and South Sudan and continued fighting in Mali revive for some the stereotypical view that Sub Saharan Africa will always be a waste of development dollars, a place that will never change.

The atrocities occurring in these three countries are horrific. But they are far from representative of Sub Saharan Africa as a whole and will not alter the broad, positive change that is sweeping the continent.

In Nigeria 276 girls remain missing after being abducted from their school by the terror group Boko Haram. 

The girls were taken because they were pursuing their education – a reminder to us all of the many obstacles related to culture and tradition that girls in many parts of the world must overcome to improve their lives.  

As we pray for the girls’ safe return, we ask you to please stand with girls everywhere risking their lives to attend school.

Earth is the water planet. Seen from space, its extensive blue oceans, rivers, and lakes give Earth its second name—the blue planet.

From space, it’s beautiful.

From the home of a poor African family, it’s another story. Almost half of the people on earth without access to safe water live in Africa.

In the past, Aid for Africa has written optimistically about Africa’s future. Others share our passion, particularly Bill and Malinda Gates.  In the 2014 Gates Annual Letter, the couple discusses development and the poor.  They do this through the lens of three myths that they believe persist and block progress for the poo
