Africa often gets a bad rap in the media. Reports pertaining to war, dictators, famine and piracy are commonplace; it’s enough to make the wary traveler or expat stay away.
But that’s exactly the perception that Chioma and Oluchi Ogwuegbu are hoping to change. The two sisters have launched a website called Celebrate Africa, a site which chronicles their inspiring journey across 22 African nations. Their focus will be to tell a different story about Africa, a story about the beautiful, optimistic and inspiring things happening throughout the continent.
So far, their journey has already taken them to Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Cote d’Ivoire, Gambia, Ghana, Guinea, Guinea Bissau, Mali, Senegal, and Sierra Leone.
During their trip, Chioma intends to volunteer at non-profits, learning everything she can about the problems and solutions that face the continent’s present and future. Meanwhile, Oluchi has brought along a video camera, documenting the good news as they encounter it, hoping to share what they discover with the world.
Africa is a breathtakingly beautiful continent with amazing people, and we strongly support the sisters, their message, and their inspiring adventure!
