The African Stereotype

The global perception of Africa is that of poverty, sickness, famine, corruption, rising Islamic extremities and leadership concerns among other issues.

The picture painted is distorted; the reality is that while Africa faces challenges as do all continents individuals and media have continued to push he old and tired narrative of Africa, while focusing majorly on the ills; failing to celebrate the good out of Africa as well.

With this project we tend to rekindle a genuine pride of Africans for Africa by sharing the positive stories and finding solutions to the issues that plague us. Africa No Filter is a full digital campaign aimed at telling positive African Stories from an African perspective, celebrating the unsung heroes in Africa by giving them a platform to share their success stories to the world.
