One of the Internet’s largest public content sites and the most popular Africa information destination on the web, allafrica.com averages some two million visits and five million page impressions each month. This reach will certainly play a most important role in distributing the content of the Twenty Ten project far and wide – helping Africa tell Africa’s stories.
The kind of stories, of course, are not just straight sports reporting. Pictured above by Samantha Reinders, for example, is nine-year-old Diego Mano from Mannenburg in Cape Town. This is part of a series commissioned by the Twenty Ten editorial team to showcase the influence of football’s stars on every aspect of African life – including the naming of its children – and was one of the 11 images run by allafrica.com as a recent photo essay.
