Different tongues, one voice
Did you know that hundreds of languages are spoken in Africa? From Amharic to Igbo, from Swahili to Oromo, the diversity in languages depict the various forms in which people communicate across the Continent and the breadth of distinct cultures and traditions that exist in Africa.
To understand Africa is to understand the plethora of beauty, knowledge, power and influence of different ethnic groups that, together, form an incredibly empowering force that stretches across rivers and oceans and pours itself into humanity.
Can you speak any of these languages? How can we use them to unify so that we may continue to speak the language of good will and humanity?
