At Africa No Filter, we know that narrative matters.
Narratives are a collection of related stories that are articulated and refined over time to represent a central belief.
The prevailing narrative of Africa as the continent of poverty, disease, conflict, poor leadership and corruption is stereotypical.
It has turned a dynamic, innovative and evolving continent with 54 countries into a single story of a broken and dependent continent, a people who lack agency.
We’re on a mission to shift outdated perceptions of Africa by supporting the development of stories that represent Africa beyond stereotypes.
