UNICEF - Afghanistan - Finnish funding enables UNICEF to provide safe water to school children in Afghanistan | NGOs in Human Rights, Peace and Development | Scoop.it

The funding has enabled UNICEF to extend improvements in water supply and sanitation facilities to nearly 77,000 children in 94 schools in northern Afghanistan in the first year of the project. A similar number is expected to be reached in 2011.

This is amazing that countries even as far as Finland contribute to UNICEF fund, especially as much as 1.33 million dollars, it's global contribution like this that makes the world a better place.

Ghana's president Akufo Addo shocks France's Macron with Africa non-dependent speech — | NGOs in Human Rights, Peace and Development | Scoop.it
The idea that African countries have long been independent and free to pursue their own destinies seems obvious to young Africans across the continent. Yet, the everyday reality often feels far from that. Some 50 to 60 years after independence for many countries, Africa's fortunes seem to still closely aligned with developmental support an

Igor Espanhol's curator insight, February 3, 4:28 PM

"Nkrumah defined neocolonialism as a situation of infringed and compromised national sovereignty where foreign interests remain economically—and hence politically—dominant in strategic decision making. Nkrumah led the nation to a legal form of independence from Britain in 1957 and yet was toppled by a CIA-sponsored coup in 1966, in no small part due to the publication of his 1965 work condemning neo-colonialism in Africa as “the last stage of imperialism.”"
