Can You Be Well-Educated If You Know Nothing about Africa?

Africa-America Institute CEO Kofi Apenteng is determined that the six-decade old organization - which has enabled higher education for thousands of Africans who have become leaders in their countries - remain relevant and effective in changing times. Programmes to strengthen African universities, support African diplomats and combat stereotypes of Africa are among the new directions. All these, Appenteng says, foster leadership, which is essential to build peace and prosperity across the continent.
