Unser Afrika-Bild verengt sich leider immer wieder auf zwei Blickwinkel: das Hunger-Afrika oder das Safari-Afrika. Dass dieser Kontinent vielschichtig ist, dass es zum Beispiel auch ein urbanes, akademisches Afrika gibt, wird meist ausgeblendet. Es ist gut, wenn ein Projekt wie 'Lions of Science' dazu beiträgt, akademischen Nachwuchs zu fördern und zugleich auch die Wahrnehmung dieses Kontinents zu weiten. - Marietta Slomka, news anchor - ZDF (German-TV)

The website is very well structured and highly interesting. - Barbara Reich, Press and Film Officer, Music Tours and Music Projects Coordinator - Goethe-Institut Kenya

I think the idea, the network and the Lions of Science approach are excellent. - Margot Weiler, Coordinator - DAAD Program ‘Welcome to Africa’
