Our mission is to combat Western prejudices and popular misconceptions regarding the African continent by demonstrating the goodwill and hospitality of Africans from a variety of nationalities.  By relying on the support of individuals and communities throughout our journey, we hope to actively reduce negative stereotypes and promote a positive image of Africa to the West.

Quote of the Week: "Let me tell you what I think of bicycling. I think it has done more to emancipate women than anything else in the world. It gives women a feeling of freedom and self—reliance. I stand and rejoice every time I see a woman ride by on a wheel...the picture of free, untrammeled womanhood."
Susan B. Anthony
