"There are children starving in Africa. Eat your peas."
Surely I am not the only person whose first impressions of Africa were shaped along these lines. Whether it was your mother excoriating you about wasting food or an advertisement for Oxfam showing malnourished babies, the earliest impression of Africa many of us have received is of deprivation.
While that's still a reality, it is by no means the whole reality. More importantly, it is not the reality that will have the greatest impact on Africa's future, and yours.
