There is a lot of knowledge output from and about Africa. Unfortunately, the story about Africa is always one sided, making people view the continent either as too rosy or all doom and gloom. What's worse is that Africans themselves don't always have the latest knowledge about their continent. At Hadithi we recognize that this information is not always freely accessible to everyone so we engage the public around important innovations in science and technology, social studies and the arts in Africa.
