The AfricaW group consists of friends and volunteers from all around the world and our aim is to create a major source of "undiluted" information about Africa and the world in general. We are an independent (nonpartisan) group and we honor freedom of speech and expression (as long as it does not infringe on the rights of others). We have been in existence for over a decade and steadily growing in both number and popularity (thanks to our dedicated friends and volunteers).

We are a primary source of information. In other words, we do not copy our articles and stories from any other website. We publish only genuine researched articles and stories. We are the primary and copyright owners of all the articles and stories on our website ( Our aim is to make very useful and user-friendly for all.
