This is a story I got from one of the youths when I visited South Western Uganda during one of my education campaigns. She says: In my Community we (Youths) have the following problems 1. Illiteracy especially for girls 2. Poverty 3. Unemployment. Addressing the is the issue in number 1 above, it comes as a result of the community having low trust in girls who they believe are not good enough to be educated as far as boys should. Their reason being, girls are good...

I often say: " You should be proud of being who you are and where you come from, don't try to pretend you belong to another country or another community.. You're who you are and you should be proud no matter what! ". I believe in each community, there are good and bad things, there are all types of humans ( the good, the bad and the ugly ), there are no perfect communities like the philosophes hope, there are no communities without problems and issues. But no matter what, it's up t...

Vulnerable children have been disadvantaged in many areas. The strategy that can be used to improve the performance of these children in schools are stated as follows: (1) Subjects where they are not doing well must be identified and helped by both parents, teachers, and the community. (2) Introduce nutrition programmes for these children so that they are provided with food in the areas where they are found. (3) Motivate them through bringing back followers. Vulnerable chil...

It’s a dismal scene. The playground, which was created to bring joy and entertainment to crowds of children, stands empty in the golden August evening. Determined layers of weeds have taken over the hiking trails. Remaining completely still, the water in the local lake appears to be entirely untouched. Once these arenas were outdoor paradises for young people. The great outdoors once echoed with sound of young people making memories and appreciating the immense beauty of nature....

I would like to write about this topic since I realized that it has become a serious topic nowadays, at least in my never-stop-thinking head of mine. Of course, my eagerness about writing this didn’t appear just like that. I have run into several phenomenons which successfully brings me out to a conclusion that: people do depend on their sense of belonging of something to do such things over other things, or in short: people, consciously or not, use their sense of belonging. Why...

We are a group of 10 girls in Yilonayili Anglican Primary School. Yilonayili is a village under the Sagnarigu District in Northern Ghana. Our community faces a lot of challenges but the most important one the Tech Girls wishes to talk about is the lack of health facilities in the community. Our community is about 10 miles from Tamale where the nearest health facility can be accessed. Due to the distance from Yilonaayili village to Tamale, we normally lose our friends, mothers,...


Indigenous people have rights too

Rights should be respected and honored by another person. Most rights harbored by indigenous people are marginalized because in many cases, they are different with the other people. This is the wrong perception because they are alike. Indigenous people are, perhaps, meant as tribal community who have a close relation to their original lands or nature. This definition is almost false, and the proper meaning of indigenous people are descendants of the original people before their lands were occupi...
