Is there any Good news from Africa.
I am don’t know what you mean by this statement. Is it from business side, social, economy or what. What good news do you want from Africa my dear?
Anyway, personally, from where I am, there is alot of good news coming out of Africa today.
Especially in the development and micro finace sector. Alot of great strives and intiatives are coming up both by local communities, donor agencies, NGOs etc. Example in the Dry Sahel region , Tree Aid is facilitating locals through a Village Tree Entreprise Project to develop business plans, undertake feasibilities, and facilitate access to Business and financial services.These Entreprises are based on Non Wood FOrest Products like Shea, Honey, Baobab tree products, grafted mangoes, Gomme arabique etc. These village Entrepreneurs are improving their livelihood , enabling Local Economic Devlopment while increasing their resource base by planting more of the trees , making them more resiliant to the caprices of weather and climate change. This is good news.
There is alot of Good news from Africa my dear. Just look for the right channels. visit http://www.treeaid.org.uk for more information on the VTE projects and possibility of doing business with these dynamic Entrepreneurs.
