The other day, my neighbor Kelly stopped me at the elevator. “I’m sorry to interrupt you,” she said. “but are you the one with the ‘Africa Moments’ Wifi ID?”

“Yes,” I answered, and told her about HartNamtemah and our projects across the entire continent of Africa. I explained that Africa is on the edge, ready to rock the world.

She was stunned. She blamed the media for always showing the negative side of Africa, and confessed she’d never considered there might be a positive side to the continent. But her amazement soon gave way to excitement. She said she was eager to invest in Africa and its people.

Although Kelly is my neighbor, we haven’t talked much. But seeing my WiFi ID helped us connect – and now Kelly sees Africa in a whole new light.
