Dutch organization BrandOutLoud is sick of the status quo when it comes to how Africa is portrayed.While the images of Africa have remained the same, the image of development has changed. The industry itself has created a negative, stigmatising image of Africa. We must no longer hide behind arguments like 'it brings in the most money’ or ‘the ends justify the means'. How can we change the existing image? By looking into opportunities…See More
