Africa Rising!

I had to share an interesting article I read today by Italian Vogue Editor Franca Sozzani.

“Africa does not need charity. Africa needs investment and partnership. Joining forces with civil society and private sector, including non-traditional players, like the fashion industry, has become indispensable. Sustainable development is my top priority”.

Well said. I think its great to see the Western world taking notice and partnering with our Continent.
