Recipe for a better nation



We may associate pessimism with bad things, but at a political level, the world’s best societies are all experts at pessimism.

#woman #culture

Photo by Stephanie Sinclair @stephsinclairpix // Josephine Kulea was 9 years old, every other week, one of her classmates would stop coming to school. One by one they were first circumcised and then married off to men more than 30 to 40 years older than them, many of whom were already married to other women. Kulea was somewhat fortunate. Though she was circumcised in preparation for marriage, she had the support of her mother, who championed her education and resisted family pressure to marry her off at a young age. Kulea has since helped create the @SamburuGirlsFoundation, which rescues girls escaping traditional practices, such as child marriage and female circumcision, also known as female genital mutilation / cutting (FGM/C). “[Our work] is very difficult, because there is no political will or support,” said Kulea, noting that even though the law supports her efforts, the very traditional community adamantly resists any change in these rituals. Earlier this year, Kenya became the 19th country to join the African Union's Campaign to End Child Marriage, which aims to speed up change across Africa by encouraging governments to develop strategies to raise awareness of child marriage and address it’s harmful repercussions. Since then, the effort has attracted a burgeoning roster of child advocates, from government officials and religious authorities to traditional leaders and former child brides—all committed to serving as champions of change in Africa. . This image is part of a 175-image exhibition titled “Too Young to Wed,” which is the inaugural exhibition at the new L’Arche du Photojournalisme, atop at the prestigious Grand Arche de la Defense in Puteaux, Paris. Many of the images were made #onassignment for @natgeo. The show, which opened June 1 and runs through Sept. 24, is complete with educational information about the dangers of #childmarriage and the efforts underway around the world to end the practice – including our work at our nonprofit organization of the same name, @TooYoungToWed. @letoitdelagrandearche #samburugirlsfoundation #girls #letgirlslearn #girlseducation #kenya #paris #africanchampionsforchange

Photograph by David Chancellor @chancellordavid -- Prior to attending Imuget le nkarna (celebration of 10 years as a warrior) Samburu moran (warriors) wash by the edge of a dam before applying red ochre to their bodies. The Samburu are know as the ‘butterfly people’ by other warrior tribes, because of the bright colours they dress in and their flamboyant body adornments. They live in the northern highlands of Kenya. The Samburu have an ancient connection to elephant, they require elephant dung to marry and consider them sacred. Any Samburu that kills an elephant brings ‘alanna’ a curse upon his family. Across Africa growing populations and deepening poverty have intensified the battle between man and animals for the same land and environmental resources. Increasingly, animals are pushed into smaller pockets of wilderness, their migration routes closed off, and their water supplies damned and irrigated for crops. Illegal poaching and hunting has decimated their numbers. At the same time, rural farmers have learned to mistrust wildlife, killing those animals who have encroached further onto their land. If wildlife conservation is to succeed, it is imperative to find a way for man and animal to coexist in suitable harmony --From work and projects documenting community conservation #withbutterfliesandwarriors --To see more of my work and projects follow me @chancellordavid and here @natgeo #withbutterfliesandwarriors #communityconservation #nopoaching #forrangers #kenya #samburu #rhino #elephant @francescamaffeogallery @hellokiosk @kinetic_six

So You Want To Be A Politician?

 Study this interview.  Save it.  Print it out.  Study it again.  You will see. 

OMOWUNMI EDET Becomes Commissioner In ONDO State + What The LAGOS Ex-Lawmaker Told City People - FULL INTERVIEW

"...All these while, I was still having babies, and I am blessed with 3 children. Now, I am a potential grandmother so to say. I later stumbled into politics, which I once regarded as an aberration as a fulltime pastor. I have been a Pastor and planted several churches. I started full time ministry in 1988 as an assistant pastor. I went to a bible school in 1991 and graduated in 1994. I was ordained by Pastor Ben Enoch of Communion Chapel in 1995. God ministered to me to minister to people and I started an NGO through, which I reach the people, the headquarters of the organisation is in Ghana. It was after one of my trips to Ghana that the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN) was sensitising Christians to go into politics and I heeded the call, which was what led me into politics.
In 1999, I contested for the post of Councillor, and I lost at the primaries, but I didn’t give up. Again, in 2002, I came out and I lost. Later parties came and one endorsed me as its candidate for the Lagos State House of Assembly (LSHA) 2003 election, but I lost. All that put together, I lost three elections, and I won two, which were what brought me into LSHA. I have been serving Oshodi-Isolo Constituency 2, since 2007 and my people are happy to identify with me. I live among them and I am one person who can say that I have been able to facilitate several projects in my constituency. My family and my people are proud of me. I have been able to run a good race... "
