things to do in 2006
1 Go towards the Equator, no matter how far
Just go South (or North if you're South already), live there a little, get to know people, get to know the culture first hand and share your culture, they need that too.
2 Learn an African language
This is an interesting one: Learn about an African language. Learn a bit of it. Then try to find actual stuff in the language (i.e. no translation dictionary or description of that language). Can't find much? Imagine how it is for speakers/readers of that language. Bonus: Find stuff about History in that language. Extra Bonus: Find something about Science in that language.
3 African writing systems
Learn an African writing system like N'ko, Mandombe or any other. Bonus: Find didactive material written in that script. Extra bonus: Find non religious material in that script.
