Thanks again, to my dear friend, F, the retail-guru who sent along this article today. This is such an important concept for the people of Africa. They don't need to be the "charitable cause" for the world because they are such poor, underpriviliged people. Instead, they need recognition for their ancient land, filled with beautiful people, proud traditions and much to share with the rest of the world. The best way to recognize this is to make an investment in their country to help them to help themselves.
