Pope Francis will soon make his first trip to Africa, according to The Huffington Post. In late November, the pope will visit Kenya, Uganda, and the Central African Republic at the invitation of the heads of state and local bishops in each country. 

While this trip poses security risks, many feel the pope’s presence in the region is important given the religious extremism and violence that has plagued it.

Upon completion of the trip, the pope will have visited all continents except Oceania within his first three years as pope.
