War Child

Logo WC
The adult population in many Liberian cities and outlying villages has been decimated by the atrocities. This has created a whole generation of children who have lost contact with parents, relatives and carers. For these child victims of war the future is bleak. Not only do these children carry a huge burden of trauma, but without skills or formal education they face an uncertain future. The scale of the problem poses a huge challenge to NGO operations: from orphaned children and those who have been maimed, raped or forced into combat, to those who have simply never known a normal childhood.

Papa Wemba

Papa Wemba
Papa Wemba, often called the King of Rhumba Rock, was born in Kasai, Zaire. Shungu Wembadio Pene Kikumba first made his mark in 1970 in Kinshasa, where he was a singer, composer, and co-founder of the great youth group Zaiko Langa Langa. In 1974 he left to form his own band, Isife Lokole, and then in '76 began Viva La Musica. Hoping to reach a wider audience he ended up in Paris in the early '80s, bringing with him the entire line-up of Viva La Musica. Wemba's musical vision went beyond the capabilities of his seasoned Zairen rhumba rockers as he began to experiment with a wide range of eclectic sounds. Wemba's quite a stylish fellow, a sapeur, an aficionado of fashionable, well-designed clothing. His trendy suits with big jacket, and baggy, though tailored pants, are a strange mix of Africa, Paris, and the American zoot suit. A Soukous show is always a fashion event, and Wemba is a man of great style and taste.
Suzanne Wenger
(Born: 1915)

Suzanne Wenger sculpture
Since arriving in Oshogbo nearly 50 years ago, Austrian sculptor Suzanne Wenger has completely adopted the Yoruba people grove, striving not only to preserve the grove, but also to enhance it. With bent steel, concrete and teams of carpenters and masons, Wenger reshaped the faded shrines into fairy-tale curves, peopling the forest with abstract figures in what she calls "new sacred art." Concrete gods taller than trees lift their hands to the sky, and stone goblins haunt the bushes of the grove’s the slender paths. The effect is unique, mystical, touched at times with a hint of Hieronymus Bosch. Wenger will leave an artistic tradition. Its beams and doors may be rotting, but her Brazilian house remains its center; you can smell the dark-wooded statues. What’s more, Wenger’s work has turned Oshogbo into a center of Yoruba cultural pride. Its yearly Oshun festival held to thank the goddess attracts thousands from all religions.
VISIT WESTERN SAHARA

Flag Western Sahara

The Western Sahara, located on the north west coast of Africa borders Morocco to the north, Algeria to the east and Mauritania to the south. The region is yet to declare independence. While mainly low lying sandy plains the region can be roughly divided into three topographical zones: The steep mountainous rocky desert, formed by the chain of Atlas mountains and the hills of Zemmour, forms the north east zone.

White Lady of the Brandberg

White Lady of the Brandberg
A common misconception is that South African rock art depicts exotic 'foreigners'. People who believe the Bushmen to be mentally incapable of producing art, naturally have to find alternative artists to account for the immense quantity of rock art in southern Africa, and they seek evidence in the art itself. The painting that gave rise to most misunderstanding is the so-called White Lady of the Brandberg. It has become a persistent legend, even enjoying the doubtful distinction of appearing in one of Erich von Daniken's books where the author implies that it depicts a being from outer space - the ultimate in exoticism. The painting was discovered in 1917 by Reinhardt Maack, who was preparing a map of the Brandberg, the famous mountain in Namibia. While on a visit to South Africa in 1929, Breuil saw Maack's copy of the painting but did not visit the site.

Stevie Wonder
(Born: 1950)

Stevie Wonder
Singer and songwriter; born May 13, 1950, in Saginaw, Michigan, Stevie Wonder has been an integral part of the world of music for the past four decades, as a singer, songwriter, musician and producer. The boy wonder burst onto the music scene when he was just ten years old, and his mission ever since has been to bring joy into people's lives. Since his prodigious beginnings, Wonder has grown into an artist who combines musical innovation with political activism. The magic of his music is matched by his passionate commitment to political causes and charities. As much a teacher and leader as a supreme entertainer, he was an early and outspoken critic of apartheid in South Africa and has also been deeply involved in the global war against famine. Blind since birth, Wonder sang like a seasoned veteran even as a toddler, and at age 7 he had mastered the harmonica and drums. At 11, he had a contract with Motown that led to the birth of "Little Stevie Wonder." Wonder and his label hit the jackpot in 1963 with "Fingertips-Pt. 2." In two years he became one of Motown's finest artists, recording a series of brilliant singles for a solid nine years. By the end of the '60s, he was not only hitting the charts with his own records - including "Uptight," "Castles in the Sand," and "My Cherie Amour" - but also by writing for many other Motown artists, including "It's a Shame" for the Spinners and co-writing "The Tears of a Clown" with Smokey Robinson. Social activism became increasingly important to his career and his life. He lobbied the federal government to create the Martin Luther King, Jr. national holiday; he performed in concerts to protest nuclear weapons and promote peace; and he recorded songs that urged racial harmony ("Ebony and Ivory," with Paul McCartney), opposed drunk driving ("Don't Drive Drunk'), advocated stiffer handgun control laws ("My Love Is With You"), and fought world hunger ("We Are the World"). His work has earned him 17 Grammy Awards and an Oscar for "I Just Called To Say I Love You" from the 1984 film The Woman in Red. He has sold more than 70 million LPs and ranks alongside The Beatles and Elvis Presley in having the most Top Ten records. Stevie Wonder is a true black phenomenon.
