By Eric G. Postel, USAID Assistant to the Administrator for Africa
Sometimes I can’t help but be inspired. While Africa is a place of tremendous dynamism, diversity, opportunity, and progress, Africa’s success stories don’t attract attention. As the Assistant to the Administrator for Africa at the U.S. Agency for International Development, I have to spend a significant amount of my time dealing with problems: extreme poverty, conflict, disease, corruption. So when I have the chance to celebrate an experience that reveals the ideals and abilities of Africans, I want to tell that story.
