How “Christianity is the white man’s religion” feeds the damaging disconnect between the Diaspora and Africa | Dilara K Uskup | Black Youth Project
..As a result of the spread of Islam and the Arab conquest of North Africa, Christianity began to almost exclusively thrive on the continent of Europe from the seventh century onward. This leads many to solely identify Christianity with Europe. This also led to the misconception that has persisted even up to the present day that Christianity is “the white man’s religion,” and that the spread of Christianity in Africa is the exclusive result of modern European missionary work.

The identification of Christianity with Europe and not Africa was propagated by white European scholars in modernity. After all, how could European colonists find biblical reason to enslave a “dark continent” that was “uncivilized” if Christianity’s true developmental, doctrinal, and theological history was revealed to be out of Africa? The truth is that Africa civilized Europe. However, Europe’s manifest destiny relied on the exploitation of Africa(ns) was concealed as “civilizing.” In The History and Heritage of African American Churches: A Way out of No Way, Dr. L. H. Whelchel contends: “thus, Africans, the historical parents of Christianity, now become the children.”

HIPZ | Health Improvement Project Zanzibar
Undertakes, under contract to the government, work to improve the standard of health care at two hospitals in rural Zanzibar.
"Zanzibar has just one doctor to every 20,000 people, compared with 1 to 400 in the UK. The World Health Organisation (WHO) recommends the ratio of at least one doctor to every 10,000 people in developing countries like Zanzibar/Tanzania. Medical provision is very basic with inadequate facilities and drug supplies."

"Earth Rights Institute (ERI) is designed to be an equilateral knowledge platform, where local people collaborate with academics and development professionals, both local and foreign, by exchanging skills, experiences, and knowledge to solve crucial development issues such as widespread poverty, land right disputes and environmental degradation.

ERI takes an innovative approach to join education, advocacy and research in building ecologically, economically and culturally sustainable communities in some of the world's poorest communities. ERI advocates a model of development that supports the re-localization of development expertise. We believe that in order to empower communities to manage and direct their own development, strategies and expert knowledge must be conceived locally.
