How to promoter your African website

The Africa Global Village plans to be  a community of  bloggers and part time writers around the world who work together to bring you reports from blogs and citizen media everywhere, with emphasis on voices that are not ordinarily heard in international mainstream media.
The Africa Global Village seeks to aggregate, curate, and amplify the global conversation online - shining light on places and people other media often ignore. We work to develop tools, institutions and relationships that will help all voices, everywhere, to be heard.
Millions of people are blogging, podcasting, and uploading photos, videos, and information across the globe, but unless you know where to look, it can be difficult to find respected and credible voices. Our international team of volunteer authors and part-time editors are active participants in the blogospheres they write about on The Africa Global Village.
Eltas Enterprises, INC the parent company of The Africa Global Village is incorporated in US and also in Malawi Central Africa . We  have offices in Suwanee Georgia and in Blantyre, Malawi. We rely on grants, sponsorships, editorial commissions, and donations to cover our costs.

Our Primary Goals
At a time when international English-language media ignores many things that are important to Africa, The Africa Global Village aims to redress some of the inequities in media attention by leveraging the power of citizens’ media.

We wish to:
Call attention to the most interesting conversations and perspectives emerging from citizens’ media around the world by linking to text, photos, podcasts, video and other forms of grassroots citizens’ media.
Facilitate the emergence of new citizens’ voices through training, online tutorials, and publicizing the ways in which open-source and free tools can be used safely by people around the world to express themselves.
Advocate for freedom of expression around the world and protect the rights of citizen journalists to report on events and opinions without fear of censorship or persecution.
