What is Africa to our children?

Pictures of safaris? Wild animals lying in wait for their prey? Vast spaces barren and dry with no water visible to the eye? Multitudes of starving children?… That’s how many of us have come to know Africa from the news & media we see. Whether by accident, simple omission, or purposeful planning, so many of the images we have of this large continent fail to capture the beauty, the mystery, and the magic that make up historical and modern Africa.

In truth, Africa is one of the most important continents in the world. Second only to Asia in size and population, Africa is commonly referred to as the birthplace of mankind and is well noted for its vast natural resources and beauty. Despite its rich history, the future is even more hopeful with much opportunity for continued development and economic growth. It is in everyone’s interest to support these initiatives, to improve the lives of the people, and to give more access to education, for in helping the citizens of Africa we are truly helping ourselves. While leaders all over the world understand these facts, each of us need wait no more. Beautiful Africa, founded upon the works of the international artist, Lap Ngo, was developed to educate on and showcase the beauty and promise of this great land.

Join us in a movement to change the way the world looks at Africa… Beautiful Africa.

While out collecting dirt for the mound, Teo is easily distracted from his task. He spends most of the day playing with his African friends and returns home with no dirt for the mound. A disappointed mom helps Teo realize that he had not been responsible. With the help of his friends, Teo is able to collect dirt so that a new mound may be built.
