“What Africa needs is a dream that all Africans can ascribe and aspire to; a common dream that they can own as Africa.” – Graca Machel

We, at Reader's Café Africa believe that this common dream is possible for Africa.

Our Vision:

To connect lives with words, as we become the literary hub for Africa.

Our Mission:

To cultivate a reading and writing culture in Africa, and among her peoples, while also connecting lives through words.

Objectives and Aims

  • Building and developing writers from the African continent.
  • Empowering Africa to own her own – we can and will take responsibility for our Africa through writing and reading, as part contribution to the greater vision of Africa.
  • As part of building towards being a literary hub for Africa, Reader's Café Africa aims to build at least one physical Café in as many African countries as possible. This will be a place for reading, writing, folk tales and mentoring of young people.
  • To involve high school students in writing, mentoring them to write on various topics, thus making them even more responsibly aware of their Africa and owning it.

After all is said and done, “we read to know that we are not alone”.
