Dear White People | Thought Leader | Social Media for Social Good in Africa | Scoop.it
Ian Anderson's insight:

South Africa is in conflict, and people are shooting in all directions as to whom is to blame. Past racism politics is one of them. The problem is much more complex, with over 300 different cultural tribes in South Africa alone, China exploiting the African continents rich resources, with no scruples concerning promoting bribery and corruption amongst it's morally corrupt and weak leaders.

 

As mentioned on Facebook by Lazola Ndamase, says:

"This year was a turning point in our society. It was for the first time that a black government turned its guns and mowed down black workers in a labor dispute. It was the first time unions and some union leaders rejected the demands of workers and united with the bosses. It was for the first time that the ANC endorsed the barbaric acts of Police in the name of the rule of law.

But this was also a bright year. It marked a turning point in labor disputes. It was the first time workers realized that power lies in their hands and not in the hands of unions or union bosses. It was the first time that workers realized that unions are their own creation and should be answerable to them. I hope workers carry the bravery of this year into the next year. I hope workers declare the next years as years of heightened mass action against the capitalist system and the capitalist class."

Africa is diverse, it has it's diverse and unique set of problems.Instead of throwing aid and 1st World protocol, my personal opinion is that Africa is need of prayer, for good strong ethical leaders to bring restoration and hope amongst it's people...We have the resources, we just need Faith and encouragement.

Ally Clark/Mayse Thao's curator insight, April 10, 11:19 AM

Africa Intellectual: Strange circles were found in the Kalahari Desert in southern Africa. They weren't on google maps in 2006, so its possible they were either made recently or were only revealed after erosion and could be thousands of years old. Its unlikely that they were made recently, however, considering the desert is now really harsh and inhospitable.

Mobility could be game-changer for African miners | Social Media for Social Good in Africa | Scoop.it

Mobility could be game-changer for African miners.

Africa currently has around 644 million mobile phone subscribers. For the vast majority of Africans, a mobile device will always be the primary way to access the Internet. Already, 70% of Egyptians, 57% of South Africans, 55% of Ghanaians 54% of Kenyans and 50% of Nigerians only access the Net via mobile devices.“Mobile communication plays a vital—and growing—role in African society and business. We’ve already seen some great mobile innovation aimed at individuals and small enterprises: the next wave will be when bigger businesses start to exploit the possibilities of mobile properly,” says Brendan Martin, CEO of Silverkeys Consulting, part of the Barnstone Group. “Mining is one of Africa’s most important sectors, and a number of factors make mobility an attractive add-on for Africa’s mines.”

Global Visionaries - young leaders, global impact.
Empowering young people to become global leaders in creating a just and sustainable future.

In this programme socially conscious and environmentally focused education and community service are used in various countries to help youth recognize they need to work together so that they will be the change for the future. This initiative promotes that the young people find innovative solutions to the challenges they face in this world. While teaching the young people leadership skills, they also provide exposure to service in difficult situations for which the youngsters need to apply themselves.

This programme looks like a great initiative to inspire the young generation to be involved innovatively, but might be even more impactful when foresight skills and methodologies are included in the learning processes.
