I just want to share my reaction towards Education in Africa; I think it would be excellent, if the UN invested in the field of education to provide first class universities in each developing country in Africa. This initiative would permit young Africans to possess or deliver their expectations. It would also discourage young people travelling to the Diaspora. If Africa has massive a number of well educated students then the future will be bright and the challenges in Africa will...

I don't have a habit to speak about things in a round about way, so let me straightly come to the point: As obvious as it is from my title here, I'm going to write about the necessity of the teaching of law to every citizen. In order to lay the foundation of a justice loving peaceful society, we dearly need it. What happens is real and not everybody knows about the laws of their country. Yes, only those who become graduates in it or choose it as a field of their profession get acquainted with i...

They say “money makes the world go round” and that “education is the key to success”. With money invested in important sectors like education there can be development. That is why if I were a millionaire I would invest more in education and youth empowerment. I would invest in education especially in girl child education. I would make sure that the majority of girls access education because they say that “when you educate a girl child you educate a nation”. This is...

If I were a billionaire... What would you do if you had a billion pounds? What could you spend all that cold, hard cash on? I know what I'd spend it on. I'd buy a sports car and a mansion (or two). But seriously what could we do with a billion pounds to help? What could we do to be a good citizen of this world of ours? I don't need to go into detail, because the answer is simple really. If I had a billion pounds I would help the poor. I would help those in Africa, by giving...

As the proverb goes: Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime. If I were a millionaire I would teach the world how to fish. I use the phrase how to fish metaphorically, we do not need so many fishermen. Poverty is one of the greatest problems of the world. A millionaire alone will not be able to eradicate poverty but the investment in the human race can be a big step in the right direction. Why does poverty exist?...

Have you ever wondered about what you would do with millions of dollars? Would you buy a new house, or your dream car? Even though these things are immensely attractive, if I were a millionaire, I would invest it in education. The building of schools, offering scholarships for further education, and giving schools the funding they need to improve the quality of education. I would focus my money especially on giving girls the resources they need to receive a quality education....

"I am a feminist, and a woman's right activist." This is how Saba Ismael, the Executive Director of Aware Girls, was introduced during the Unicef Activate Talk I had the privelege of seeing on June 10th. A feminist is someone who believes in the social and political equality of the sexes. It is hard to believe that in the Western world there is anyone left who doesn't voluntarily claim the title of feminist, and wear it with pride. Surely everybody agrees that a world where all gen...

Today, I attended a campaign that encouraged people of Mongu to read and write. The "Lets Read Zambia!" Campaign was held at a basic school were children in Grades 1, 2 and 3 were showing the people of the local community how they are learning and how they can read. I Personally think that if most of the people that were at that event have been encouraged to to read and write, then most of the people will be educated hence reducing the high number of illiteracy. If such is kept on...

“Never buy a Japanese car or anything large that’s Japanese. We can’t forget what they did to us,” speaking in Chinese, my grandmother shook her head disapprovingly as she walked away from Japan House’s doors and into the parked car. The Volvo deftly slid out from the Japanese restaurant drive way onto the service road. My mother who is driving in the front seat gives a soft reproaching glance at her mother-in-law. I immediately stop the tickle war with my brother and s...
