The U.S. Baha’i National Center is in Evanston, Ill . The Baha’is entered Africa in the 1950s and went on to establish outposts in every country. Rather than providing material assistance, the Baha’is encourage Africans to use their own resources to produce change.

- The Bahá’í Faith is a monotheistic religion. Its founder, Bahá’u’lláh, taught that all religions represent progressive stages in the revelation of God’s will. There are no clergy; the faith’s affairs are administered by a network of democratically elected councils. The terms Bahaism and Bahaist are incorrect; use the Bahá’í Faith to refer to the religion and Bahá’í to refer to an adherent.
