“God bless Africa, Guard her people, Guide her leaders, And give her peace.” – Trevor Huddleston

I have cherished the ideal of a democratic and free society in which all persons live together in harmony and with equal opportunities.” – Nelson Mandela

“As a small child in England, I had this dream of going to Africa. We didn’t have any money and I was a girl, so everyone except my mother laughed at it. When I left school, there was no money for me to go to university, so I went to secretarial college and got a job.” – Jane Goodall

“Education, particularly higher education, will take Africa into the mainstream of globalization.” – John Agyekum Kufuor

“For Africa to me… is more than a glamorous fact. It is a historical truth. No man can know where he is going unless he knows exactly where he has been and exactly how he arrived at his present place.” – Maya Angelou
