African heritage is at risk due to lack of funding for conservation, unregulated development, conflicts and natural disasters. While there are countless examples of positive initiatives and innovative administrators fighting against the odds to conserve heritage in Africa, we need a much broader, long term vision to record our invaluable heritage resources on the continent in order to protect them and disseminate their value to society. We want to conserve heritage and at the same time unlock its potential to make a positive difference in people’s lives.
Heritage is our link to the past. It shapes the world around us and who we are. It inspires and connects us. Our mission is to open access to heritage through digital innovation. That's why we started OpenHeritage. The future of our past.
