It’s May 1st - Another Workers Day!

Another year !!! Yesterday was workers’ day. Yeaaaaahh! If you’re lucky like me, it’s a day off work!  Another day to lie in bed, savour the pleasure of not having to rush off to catch your commute to work. But it is beyond just that. It is a day in which I can celebrate myself and every other employee getting the job done; meeting every target; working late and even through the weekends sometimes. A day where I celebrate the “wheew” moments! Moments like when your boss and clients are pleased with your job or when you just narrowly escaped being sacked for a misdemeanour. Today I celebrate myself, and every other worker out there, who on a daily basis self develops their skills so as to be better at what they do. it is a day off from the never ending race for the best employee of the month!!

But a few questions on my mind………….

Discrimination Reduces Us as Human Beings!

Discrimination Reduces Us as Human Beings!

Tragically young people are often both the victims and perpetrators of tribal / religious based violence and attacks. They are the ones indoctrinated to carry out the massive destruction of lives and properties. Even in the cooperate world they are the ones who most often bear the brunt of racial, tribal / religious discrimination when seeking for jobs, studying in schools and even in offices for the ones that are employed.

A CANCER-FREE WORLD

A CANCER-FREE WORLD

My grandfather was the most the most energetic man I have ever known - strong, hardworking and resilient. Until cancer struck! He got weaker and thinner as the days went by. Had one doctor’s appointment after another, several radio-therapies, and endless medications. At the end it was all a slow, painful journey till we lost him. The pain of his passing still remains......

The entire process taught me a lot. One of which is that staying healthy is non- negotiable! It has to be a conscious deliberate effort throughout the course of ones life - regular medical check-ups, healthy diets and other lifestyle changes.

We don’t have to lose our loved ones to cancer and the fight begins with you and I!

Female education goes beyond getting girls into school. It is also about ensuring that girls learn and feel safe while in school. Girl-child education can eradicate many of the norms that exist in today’s society which tends to suppress women.
