Making the Road Resource Guides

Since 2016, AfricaFocus has colloborated with Making the Road (MTR) in preparing on-line background resource guides for the MTR travel seminars to Southern Africa and to Cuba.

These resource guides were prepared as Google documents for convenient sharing and feedback from participants in the seminars. Archives of the resource guides for 2016 and 2017 for Southern Africa are now available through the links below for wider use. They include material still relevant for understanding South Africa and its neighbors in 2018.
