We have noticed an encouraging trend over the past year. A number of new organizations have launched that are focused on issues of cultural heritage protection, conservation, public outreach and education, and study in Africa. An excellent recent example is the Institute for Indian Ocean Heritage. Let’s hope the trend continues and that existing organizations expand their roles and contributions.
Check out our list below of some of the principal organizations based in and outside of Africa committed to this endeavor.
