When I turned up my nose at broccoli at the dinner table, my mom would guilt me into eating everything on the plate, "because people were starving in Ethiopia."

While watching The Wonder Years, I saw commercials of B-list celebrities pleading for people to send money to feed emaciated children in Africa.

As I grew older, my view of Africa didn't really change. It seemed that no good news came out of the continent. Everything I read and saw was about conflict, famine, HIV/AIDS, or disease. And for many of us, that's all we know about Africa.

I felt, as most people do, powerless about the problems there. Most of us think of Africa as a lost cause.
