The following is an interview that our Editor-in-Chief, Dr. Rahel Kassahun, gave to IJNet (International Journalists Network) in December 2008 articulating the vision and purpose of Africa Unbound.

IJNet: What is the vision behind Africa Unbound? How does this publication differentiate itself from other publications about Africa and for Africans?

RK: The vision behind Africa Unbound is for each of us to recognize our individual responsibility for our personal development; and by extension, to assume the important role of contributors to our communities. When we incorporate civic responsibility into our daily lives and add value beyond the development of our family nucleus, reaching into community, nation, and world, we shift into our ultimate personal power - we make ourselves useful in ways beyond our imagination.
