Chioma and Oluchi Ogwuegbu (we call them the Travelling Sisters) have travelled through 14 countries in Africa, on a mission to Celebrate Africa, bringing the continent’s positive stories to audiences across the world on their website through pictures, blogs and videos.

They are planning to travel through another 23 countries, but before they start the second leg of their mission, they are hosting a fund-raising photo exhibition, with a collection of some of their favourite pictures from around Africa.

They will be selling these images to raise funds to support the next phase of their trip. The exhibition opens on October 2nd 2009 at Jazzhole, 168 Awolowo Road, Ikoyi. They will also be speaking about their experiences, as well as giving tips on how to travel through Africa on a budget.
