In an effort to help readers get a little more clarity on issues concerning Africa, I’ve enlisted the help of Bono. I suppose he can be considered a provocative icon when it comes to African causes, however the trends and results of what he’s worked on are positive and pretty much indisputable.
This is certainly not intended to be an “African Gospel according to Bono”, but I do hope it helps folks to see that Africa may not be the mysterious, hopeless place they thought it was. But instead, a vibrant, eclectic “King of the Continents”, filled with abundant resources and limitless possibilities.
Projects like (Red) and ONE.org have been successes. These are groups of people from around the world leveraging governments to create programs that rely on accountability.
