dipti bhatnagar, an African with a diaspora heart, has been an activist for over 20 years.
The ORA-A fellowship brings together a thoughtful and talented cohort of people who care deeply about the beauty and resilience of Africa and her peoples. I feel so grateful to be part of this cohort. After 20+ years as an activist, I am keen to learn and contribute to our collective work of confronting the polycrisis and caring for each other and ourselves while we do it.
