Sunbin Back's curator insight, March 8, 2014 6:08 AM

In Liberia, the school buildings were shattered in the result of fourteen years of civil war. The students became refugees which led the an entire generation of children to grow up with out much of education. Many organizations helped rebuild Liberia, but a broken education system remained. The organization also did an experiment on the students of the schools in Liberia. Students that go to school, and participate the full program succeeded the most, and showed intelligence. To have many students illiterate and have education, many organizations have tried hard. There were several problems in having children to have schooling. Some families have children to farming, labor, or house chores, and do not send them to school. Secondly, the students have to walk a long walk to school, which is dangerous to girls, may being put at risk of abuse. Also the organization RTI tries to focus on giving the teacher the language of instruction, so the kids show improvement in reading, and have their parents persuaded the send their kids to school. 

 

This article helps me really understand Africa, because Africa does not have much education. Also I can learn that due to civil wars in the countries, it can affect many stuffs. Also I can know that the education in Africa is improving, and getting better with many help of others. 

 

I thought that this article was pretty cool because I liked the way Africa was not really a improving continent in the past. However, as more and more organizations help to have more education for the children, that area is improving steadily. Therefore I thought that it was nice how the people were really working hard to help them become better people in the countries.

 article is about Africa's religion. It mainly speaks about how the traditional religions of the area still widely thrive thepughout the inhabitants of the country. Even those who practice new religions often incorporate traditional practices.

Kaleigh & Lauren:)'s curator insight, April 13, 2014 10:47 PM

Religion:  Religion in africa is different than some might see.  Christian and Islam are just among the minorities.  Traditional African Religion is much more than some give credit for.  10% of the population still practice this religion full time.  Their expressions are found in oral traditions.  They believe in a supreme being who created and ordered the world, but experienced as distant and unreachable.

Someone is already using northern Australia's water: wildlife

Someone is already using northern Australia's water: wildlife | Australia, Europe, Africa | Scoop.it

About 60% of Australia’s surface water runoff occurs in northern Australia. Recent media stories have highlighted the potential economic and social benefits of developing irrigated agriculture in the wet-dry tropics. Indeed, the federal Regional Development Minister Simon Crean is quoted as saying that there is “plenty of water there that is all now going to waste” (The Australian, Inquirer, October 6-7 page 21). This statement, typical of those voiced by politicians keen to develop northern Australia, is a fallacy and reflects a lack of understanding of how rivers and estuaries in northern Australia work.

This article is under the area/geography catagory because it talks about the rivers that stretch throughout Australia's land. These water sources help keep both the wildlife and humans alive.
