1000 reasons to believe in Africa!

1000 reasons to believe in Africa.  That was a competition I was running last month when I was celebrating the one year anniversary of my blog. I was giving away some prizes as potentash turned 1. I got some merchandise from Coca Cola Sabco to give away as birthday presents. I have decided to reward everybody who commented on why they believe in Africa because they took time to answer the question. So everybody gets to celebrate with me. A few lucky ones will get the umbrellas, but there are pens, wristbands, openers, bag holders and draw string bags. The winners of the bottles of wine are Carol, Muthoni and Serah.

I would like to say thanks to the people who took time to comment. And of course a BIG THANK YOU to Coca Cola Sabco for the merchandise.


Here are some reasons to believe in Africa.

I believe in Africa because as the world/ psychologists/life coaches struggle to understand the secrets to happiness……. in Africa we possess it. I love how despite our many “problems”, Africans have this infectious laughter and we always have time to sit and chat.. That’s our secret to happiness!!!
