African culture

 

Overview

 

  • Africa is host to an estimate 1500-2000 different languages and dialects.

  • A population of 1.3 billion people is spread over 54 countries. Over 3000 tribes make Africa one of the most diverse continents in the world.

  • Some of the highest rural population percentages in the world contribute to great Africa’s great diversity, but also to logistical challenges.

 

Our Work

 

Africa has a great but forgotten history, but it is a rich and long one that deserves to be known. From the birthplace of mankind, to the pinnacle of civilisation, wealth and learning: Right For Education’s aim is to promote pride and unity in Africa through its history, culture and values. History gives people a strong sense of identity, and our aim is to promote the African identity. A primary focus of R:Ed’s cultural work is to accumulate a library of short histories on African countries, and thus serve as a unique destination for Africans to get to learn about their own and their neighbours’ country histories.

What our Audience says:


“Black history should be treasured, because it holds the key to the past and hope for the future. Without a clear understanding of history, one cannot properly evaluate past mistakes and correct them, and where there is no clear historical experience, the people are easily subjugated….”


A reader from Ghana

“Une descendance. Mon histoire, ton histoire, l’histoire de tout un peuple, l’empire du Ghana ou Ouagadou fût l’une des plus grandes empire, où le civisme régnait, la tolérance, la solidarité, et la fraternité. Nous pouvons dire qu’elle est aujourd’hui le modèle ou l’exemple de plusieurs États. Nous t’embrassons avec toutes notre affections. Mon origine, Ma maison, Notre dénominateur commun, Notre mère, Notre Afrique.”


A reader from Mali

“Thinking back about our own history is very necessary to comprehend what has happened to our forefathers to know a little about our culture, our way of life, our origin, we will be able to say something about our continent, our ancestors, our home and then we will be proud to be an AFRICAN.”
