Amanda Green, a student from Melbourne's Latrobe University is on a mission to educate Australians about Africa. The young Zimbabwean woman was a member of the youth committee of the African Diaspora Women's Summit which was held in Melbourne in late June 2017.More importantly, Amanda has created an organisation that seeks to educate Australians about Africa. The initiative, according to her, stems from her being constantly confronted by people who see Africa as a country rather than a continent. Bertrand Tungandame spoke with Amanda in Melbourne. 

Ms Green's initiative is getting traction on social media and gaining worldwide audience.
