Perspectives from Africa,
engagement from Finland



Understanding Africa,

representing Africans




The stories you read here, the images you see, the sounds you hear, all reflect individual and community wellbeing in Africa - the common values that underpin government, industry and society across nations - and the commitment of Finland to enhance and enrich lives and organisations everywhere.

Our reporters are a diverse group of individuals with many skills and experiences, with a wealth of knowledge and expertise - and a passion to make a difference by sharing what they know, what they have seen, and what they have heard of African business and community.
