Sustainable Development Goal 5: Gender Equality

Gender Equality - Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls
  • Providing women and girls with equal access to education, health care, decent work, and representation in political and economic decision-making processes will fuel sustainable economies and benefit societies and humanity at large
  • While a record 143 countries guaranteed equality between men and women in their Constitutions by 2014, another 52 had not taken this step. In many nations, gender discrimination is still woven through legal and social norms
  • Though goal 5 is the gender equality stand-alone goal, the SDG's can only be successful if women are completely integrated into each and every goal

Everybody can agree that these are worthy aspirations, right?

How I really feel about women cooking stew // and a path to freedom



I am so happy and proud about the industrial solutions being created now, by Nigerians, to take the arduousness out of fixing food with the ubiquitous red 'obe ata' sauce.

1. 
Have you tried Obe by Easy Sauces
I found this product in a neighbourhood shop and was so delighted I grabbed one of each type.  Tried to gift one to my mother so I could try it out but she wouldn't touch it.  Loool, she obviously doesn't want this kind of change from the original method.  I'll try it eventually ... or find someone who cooks enough to use up the contents. 
Plenty pepper

Medium pepper
2. 
There's also a company called OmoAlata that makes pre-mixed stew / pepper mixes for sale in stores and online:

https://www.facebook.com/OmoAlata
3. 
And another called Kaptain Foods with the same idea:



I bought two mini-packs of the Kaptain stew at that GTBank Food Fair and I've used them now.  The mild sauce was alright, it even included oil.  The hotpot had too much pepper for my taste but I had some tomatoes in a can so it was alright.  The food I made was yummy hehehe, going to finish the leftovers for lunch/dinner today.
http://www.kaptainfoods.com

I suggest a third Kaptain stew...with less pepper than the so-called mild but who knows maybe everybody loves pepper so much around here but many foreigners don't!

Prayer for Baby


Yoruba folk song: Bamiwo 
Vocals by Ranti 
Accompaniment by Cobhams 

Lyrics and translation:

Ba mi wo o l'awoye 
K'o ma se ba mi l'oruko je
Omo eyi ti o fi fun mi o 
K'o ma se d'agbaya l'aye o 
K'o ma se d'oku mo mi l'owo 
Ba mi wo o l'awoye 
K'o ma se d'agbaya l'aye o 

Help me watch/nurse him/her to good/glory/greatness 
May he not ruin my name 
This child that you gave me 
May he not become a foolish adult in life 
May he not become a corpse in my hands 
Help me watch him that he blossoms 
Let him never be useless as an adult 

Ba mi wo o l'awoye 
K'o ma se da po mo egbekegbe 
Omo eyi ti o fi fun mi o
K'o ma se j'iya ofo l'aye o 
K'o ma se baje mo mi l'owo 
Ba mi wo o l'awoye 
K'o ma se j'iya ofo l'aye o

Help me watch him well 
Let him not mix with bad company 
This child you have given me 
Let him not suffer pointlessly in this life 
Let him not spoil in my lifetime 
Help me watch him to prosper 
Let him not suffer needlessly in life. 

Ba mi wo o l'awoye
Ba mi wo o l'awoye 
Ba mi wo o, wo o, wo o l'awoye
Omo eyi ti o fi fun mi o 
K'o ma se ba mi l'oruko je
Omo eyi ti o fi fun mi o 
K'o ma se d'agbaya l'aye oBa mi wo o, wo o, wo o l'awoye

Ba mi wo o l'awoye
Ba mi wo o l'awoye 
Ba mi wo o, wo o, wo o l'awoye 
 wo o, wo o, wo o l'awoye 
 wo o, wo o, wo o l'awoye

Great Heart Movie Debate: Lion OR The Queen Of Katwe

First, you have to watch both.  You will cry a lot, I warn you. 

LION
 Five year old Saroo gets lost on a train which takes him thousands of miles across India, away from home and family. Saroo must learn to survive alone in Kolkata, before ultimately being adopted by an Australian couple. Twenty five years later, armed with only a handful of memories, his unwavering determination, and a revolutionary technology known as Google Earth, he sets out to find his lost family and finally return to his first home. - Reviews


The Queen Of Katwe 
"Queen of Katwe" is the colorful true story of a young girl selling corn on the streets of rural Uganda whose world rapidly changes when she is introduced to the game of chess, and, as a result of the support she receives from her family and community, is instilled with the confidence and determination she needs to pursue her dream of becoming an international chess champion. - Reviews

Get her in the mooood

 #DearYoungWife is discussing sex for married couples.  ๐Ÿ˜‹

Oya, bring your paper and biro...

๐Ÿ’
If your sex life is kinda rubbish, 
Don't give up.

If at first you don't succeed, try again?

 Think:
Could it be because we're all different?
Or do you just need to turn up the heat?
๐Ÿ”ฅ ๐Ÿ”ฅ ๐Ÿ”ฅ
๐Ÿ’ฅ 

try a little
bit
more?

a new approach, maybe?
