Poverty isn't getting worse, volunteering overseas is not the best way to help...
There is no ‘African’ story, just different stories of Africa by different Africans. Hear them.
'Nigeria is its people, fierce, proud, lively, resilient, unshaken by strife and despair, ingenious in the face of seemingly insurmountable opposition...Let us light up Nigeria with our dreams, our hopes, our lives and our successes. Eyes are focusing on Nigeria, ghosts of the past and spirits of the future and people all around the world. It is our change that they listen for.'

Black immigrants don’t realize that they’re able to be here and do what they’re doing because of the sacrifices of African Americans.
