Christianity is a dignified religion whose followers must leave according to the order of the bible which offers direction, advice and wisdom on matters of...

Poverty Reduction Begins with Children

Poverty Reduction Begins with Children

By Tendai Posiana CHILDREN are often the hardest hit vulnerable age-group by poverty, as it causes lifelong damage to their spiritual minds and physical bodies. Like women, children especially the girl-child carry the brunt of poverty coined in the slogan ‘feminisation of vulnerability.’ Poverty becomes to greater extent an inheritance as impoverished people are more often than not likely to pass on to their biological children, thus perpetuating the poverty cycle.

Antananarivo the place of a thousand warriors

Travelogue by Emmanuel Mwamba Antananarivo- 15th February 2017 “You cannot point using your fingers, claw it or fold it to point at anything” advised the guide.
