enabling us to celebrate our successes and most importantly to make us proud of our heritage individually and collectively. It is time to portray the Africa never seen by many and it is our joint responsibility as Africans to portray a view that showcases our victories, our achievements, our successes and even our challenges.
Therefore, through the Make A Difference Africa campaign organised by the Inspire Africa foundation we will invite Africans from within and outside Africa by direct mail and through our website to participate in forwarding stories to us along the following lines:
Are you an inspiration to others? If yes, how?
Has someone inspired you? If yes, who and how?
Do you know someone that has achieved against the odds? If yes, who and how?
Do you know of an ordinary person doing extraordinary things? If yes, who and how?
Do you have a story to share to enable us celebrate and reward success? If yes, what is your story?
A distinguished panel adhering to strict guidelines and criteria will assess eligibility for selection of appropriate stories for the publication of a collection of 100 inspirational stories from Africa or their suitability as guests on Moments with Mo, Africa's biggest talk show aired to a pan African audience. Participants will be invited to tell their story in approximately 3000 words to be sent to by email to
firstname.lastname@example.org, by or before 31st August 2008.
