There’s a narrative about Africa told by the West that continues to leave out important details, at best, or misrepresent the continent and its people, at worst. Westerners seem to relish, to some extent, the pull at the heartstrings that comes when footage streams across the television of starving orphans wandering barefoot along the dirt roads of some remote village here. I say “relish” because seeing these images and then sending money, clothing, missionaries, or whatever makes many Westerners “feel good” because they are “doing something” to “help” those in need.

The Africa I know is strong enough to help itself.

-Gracie Smith, NYU Law

My friend Gracie has been here on a Law Internship from NYU and has some very honest and thought provoking insight about her time here in Uganda.

If you are a westerner who has never been to Africa, you don’t really know Africa. You’ve been misled by the media, sadly. The way Africa has been painted and treated by the west is so wrong on so many levels and Gracie very eloquently said what I have struggled to find the words to say since I have been living here.

Please read this blog post.

Power outage in Nairobi Kenya

The lights went out in Nairobi!

But we survived.

Though the power outages or rolling blackouts are not as bad as I thought they would be in East Africa, they do happen sometimes. Follow along with us for a day in the life when the power goes out here in East Africa. Jem really wanted to eat cookies for dinner and I wanted a hamburger… watch what happens! HAHA
