Founded by Nmachi Jidenma in 2010, CPAfrica chronicles Africa’s progress. Every year, CP-Africa attracts millions of unique visitors that want to learn about Africa’s socio-economic progress.
Celebrating Progress Africa [www.cpafrica.com] was born out of the notion that in concert, we can re-build the continent through optimism, creativity, and perseverance. For too long, the world has focused on the things that are wrong about Africa – the poverty, the disease, the hunger, the strife…
At CP-Africa, we choose to celebrate what is right about Africa. Through partnerships with organizations online and on the ground, we hope to create a paradigm shift amongst Africans everywhere and offer a space for inspiration and creativity.
