#Beijing is cultivating the next #generation of African elites by training them in #China

source: https://qz.com/1119447/china-is-training-africas-next-generation-of-leaders/
It’s a #campaign that achieves several goals at once. The trips help solidify political and #business ties between China and its partners on the #continent. Like other #development partners, China gets to help build capacity in African countries. Most importantly these exchanges cultivate partners on the continent who are more likely to be sympathetic to China and its way of doing things.
...
But not all lessons from China should be learned. Under Xi Jinping, China has tightened its stranglehold over civil #society. South #Sudan is already familiar with some of these tactics. Local journalists are intimidated into silence or killed.

Foreign 'conservation armies' in Africa may be doing more harm than good

Protecting rhinos and fighting terrorism are both noble causes, but there isn't much evidence of a link between the two.

#Fucking #Famine again and again.

Since the 1984 famine in #Africa, the population in East-Africa more than doubled, so actually the problem is the mindless *#fucking, instead of #climate #change or whatever.

[[PLEASE bear in mind MOST if not ALL are now PAST tense in regards to LIBYA!!!]]

There is no electricity bill in… Libya; electricity is free for all its citizens. With only minimal flat rate charged.

There is no interest on loans, banks in Libya are state-owned and loans given… to all its citizens at 0% interest by law.

Home considered a human right in Libya –Gaddafi vowed that his parents would not get a house until everyone in Libya had a home. Gaddafi’ father has died while him, his wife and his mother are still living in a tent.

All newlyweds in Libya receive $60,000 Dinar (US$50,000 ) by the government to buy their first apartment so to help start up the family.

Education and medical treatments are free in Libya. Before Gaddafi only 25%of Libyans are literate. Today the figure is 83%

Should Libyans want to take up farming career,they would receive farming land, a farming house, equipments, seeds and livestock to kick- start their farms– all for free.

If Libyans cannot find the education or medical... mehr anzeigen

The Black Mambas

The Rhino Guardians

In 2016 Dan Sadgrove travelled to South Africa to visit The Black Mambas - the worlds first all female anti-poaching unit operating in the Balule Game Reserve in South Africa. Coming from disadvantaged communities and breaking strong patriarchal tradition, these courageous women focus on eliminating illegal wildlife trade through conservation, education and the protection of wildlife, helping to ensure the long term survival of threatened and endangered species in the area. Each day they patrol up to 20km, unarmed, looking for poachers, wire-snares, and break-ins along the fence line. Their lives are at constant risk from poachers and the dangerous wildlife they protect.

It is their belief that the war on poaching will not be won with guns and bullets, but through education within their local communities.

Konono N°1 meets Batida - "Um Nzonzing"

Konono Nº1 is a Grammy-winning musical group from Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of the Congo. They combine three electric likembé (a traditional instrument similar to the mbira) with voices, dancers, and percussion instruments that are made out of items salvaged from a junkyard. The group's amplification equipment is equally rudimentary, including a microphone carved out of wood fitted with a magnet from an automobile alternator and a gigantic horn-shaped amplifier. The group achieved international renown beginning in 2005, with its #DIY aesthetic appealing to many fans of rock and electronic music.

#Menstruation can hinder #girls’ #education, but it’s more complicated than that

source: http://www.humanosphere.org/global-health/2017/01/menstruation-can-hinder-girls-education-but-its-more-complicated-than-that/
The researchers from the study in #Uganda said there needs to be more information before translating menstrual #hygiene interventions or programs for other communities. Hennegan said more education can greatly assist girls experiencing their periods for the first time. The #study found that by providing them with information and a forum to talk with each other, especially in schools that receive the #puberty education, the girls become great sources of #support to each other.

Glitterbeat Records: Noura Mint Seymali - Arbina

Arbina is Noura Mint Seymali’s second international release. Delving deeper into the wellspring of Moorish roots, as is after all the tried and true way of the griot, the album strengthens her core sound, applying a cohesive aesthetic approach to the reinterpretation of Moorish tradition in contemporary context. The band is heard here in full relief; soaring vocals and guitar at the forefront, the mesmerizing sparkle of the ardine, elemental bass lines and propulsive rhythms swirling together to conjure a 360 degree vibe. Arbina refines a sound that the band has gradually intensified over years of touring, aiming to posit a new genre from Mauritania, distinct unto itself; music of the “Azawan.”More on bandcamp
