Description - Continent of Mothers, Continent of Hope by Torild Skard
What is Africa really like for the ordinary people who live in there? Aiming to cut through stereotypes of a continent wracked by civil conflict and AIDs, this is an introduction to a continent in change. Based on her travels through the region during her time as UNICEF's Director in West and Central Africa, the author describes the social, health and other problems experienced by its people, and the hopes for the future represented by courageous individuals, innovative comunity projects and sensible development programmes.
