This is a child-friendly site, and the main objective is to educate on all things relating to Africa.

Gateway-Africa.com is a very old site (the first original site was created in 1997), and in all cases, permission was asked in using the information.

If anyone feels he/she should be credited too, please contact us to discuss the matter. In other words, SOME of the material herein has its origins elsewhere, as we are the compiler of the data, not always the originator of all. Our family has been living in Africa from 1698, and our combined records are mind-blowing.

We do not mind you using our information for education, teaching or reference, just credit our sources, and Gateway Africa / Chrigi-in-Africa / Christian Fourie.
