Been to Africa’s Mission:
To bridge the gap between perception and reality regarding life and travel in Africa.
Hi, my name is Roni Weiss. I created this project.
In May 2011, I worked with Africa Travel Association during their 36th Annual World Congress in Dakar, Senegal. Over the course of the conference, it was mentioned many times that there is a perception problem in Africa. Part of the reason is that people just don’t get a full picture of what’s happening miles and miles away.
The hope of this project is to bridge the gap between perception and reality regarding life and travel in Africa. The money that comes in from tourism and business will help Africa grow.
Not everything is perfect in Africa, but can you say it’s perfect where you live, either? Perhaps there’s more to the African picture than we’re aware. The Been to Africa project is a means for us to learn about it together.
