[Africa Online and Publications Library] Joins the rest of the World in Celebrating World Tolerance Day.

Africa Online and Publications Library joins the rest of the world in celebrating World Tolerance Day.

The day was declared by UNESCO so as to spread tolerance and raise awareness of any intolerance that may still be prevalent in the world today.

The endeavor is to make people acknowledge the diversity in cultures, and yet appreciate the beauty in different opinions, races, beliefs, and ideas.

As AOPL we are playing an active role in observing Tolerance Day and beyond.

Thus, for our researchers across French-speaking Africa, our website is available in French.

In a bid to cater to Africa’s linguistic diversity, we are looking forward to translating the site to Spanish, Portuguese, and other languages spoken on the continent.

Africa Online & Publication Library values cultural diversity and representations of small as well as individual cultures, that is why it will spur linguistic variation.
