The Bright Continent is a platform that accommodates the African narrative, to the inimitable developments currently taking place in numerous countries. The African standard of living is rapidly improving, but apparently non-Africans are unable to see that tragedy is able to walk side by side with rapid, unforeseen progress. Consequently, what is told about the African continent is the truth, but not the whole truth.
The Bright Continent believes in the potential of Africa’s youth and therefore we offer various creatives a platform, on which they can express themselves, exchange thoughts and develop their talents. Additionally, we provide databases, networks and other tools, in order to improve the continent’s ‘fourth estate’ and assist investigative journalists from African origin during their work. Because, The Bright Continent believes in the essential role of press freedom when it comes to sustainable political, economic and social development.
