Meet Africa’s Champions of change as selected by CNN. They profile 13 change makers for the last 12 months, 8 of whom are women.
Africa’s change will be led by people. The famous, the ordinary and the extra ordinary. Problems will remain what they are until someone does something about it. Likewise for the many opportunities the continent has to offer.
Some will play a role outside of the continent as ambassadors and engineers of a different type of change by being a voice, activist, image or spokesperson for the continent. There will be many more to follow.
See the full list here on CNN.
