The New Yorker’s Ten Biggest Positive Africa Stories of 2011

Alexis Okeowo, from the New Yorker magazine, has compiled a list of the biggest positive stories of Africa for 2011. The list is available here.

The Simon Cumbers Media Fund offers an opportunity for journalists to explore progress in developing countries, such as the increase in the numbers of children accessing education; the reduction in the numbers of people dying of preventable diseases, or the delivery of sustainable tourism projects and quality food production.

Articles like the New Yorker, and those produced by journalists supported by the Fund, are examples of the great potential Africa as a continent has.
