IN THE NEWS A SPIRITUAL PERSPECTIVE

Africa: To see its promise fulfilled

Over the years, Africa has often been depicted as needy and underdeveloped. And it's true that one can't ignore the deep and serious challenges to health, safety, and stability in many of its countries. But at the heart of this continent is its energy, beauty, intelligence, and promise.

Those are among the qualities that are helping Africa to move forward. And there are signs of progress. Uganda has reduced HIV cases from 20 percent in 1991 to around 6.5 percent in 2001. In Tanzania 1,000 new schools have been built and 18,000 teachers recruited. Mozambique has reduced poverty from 70 percent to 55 percent and doubled the number of children in school.
