Introductory Guide to Africa.
Wyss, Esther, Ed.
This guide seeks to be a tool for action and a resource for understanding some of the key issues concerning Africa today. Through a series of six sessions, participants focus on a particular theme or issue that links their community with the African context. The six sessions focus on: (1) "Building Connections with Africa"; (2) "Culture Connections"; (3) "Economic Connections"; (4) "Issue Connections" (Children and Youth, Environment, Food and Hunger, Health); (5) "The Military Connection"; and (6) "Where Do We Go from Here?" Maps, recipes, historical timelines, and contact addresses with brief descriptions of regional organizations involved in work in Africa are included. (EH)
