Happy Flag Day To All Liberians!!!!!!!
I just learned from a colleague in Liberia that street parades organized my the Ministry of Education to commemorate the observance of this year's Flag Day is currently ongoing. This tradition of street parades has continued for decades now. Don't you think Flag Day observance should not only be limited to street parades but there should be a need for Liberian Historians and lecturers from the History Departments of various universities to organize symposiums and public lectures to tell Liberian students the historicity of their National Emblem, who made it, when was it first hoisted and where, can we locate the site where we first hoisted the flag, and a lot more? Look we need to graduate from the traditional way of observing our national holidays and focus on educating our younger generation on why these holiday is worth legislation? If Not, I foresee that they might soon lost their taste and their grounds of legislation because we just simply don't know.
I thank you!

In the Ghanian Refugee camp of Buduburam, stones as seen in this picture are been use to represent people who can not stay in long ques for over a week consecutively before been finally cleared for repatriation to Liberia. Some are complaining that the process is too slow as a result of reluctance from the UNHCR  office here in Ghana. Early on, UNHCR had announced that it will complete the process by June 30, 2012 something the office has denied. But many of the Refugees I spoke with told me that all the Liberians residing on the camp may not return home if nothing is done to address the issue of overcrowding.

In Liberia, information is power; traditionally this power has been concentrated among a few. Increasingly, Liberian citizens and organizations are seeking access to information and to platforms that allow them to share their experiences within and beyond Liberia.

The founders of iLab Liberia recognized this growing interest and simultaneous lack of info-sharing resources available to Liberians; the natural first step seemed to be a central location with reliable Internet, electricity, and trained IT staff where collaboration and learning could take place. The iLab has 15 computer work stations, a dedicated VSAT with a C-band connection and speed of 512/1536 kbps; there is also a conference room available for trainings and meetings and a projector with speakers for live distance learning sessions.

The iLab’s mission is to assist IT professionals as well as organizations and institutions in their efforts to more readily share information using ICT. Specifically, our staff offers trainings in open source tools and systems because they promote interactive communities and shared ownership. Other iLab trainings range from how to start your own blog to managing inconsistent power supply. iLab is also a space for local meet-ups and for local and international organizations to host events that are in-line with iLab’s mission.

iLab Liberia’s partnered with Ushahidi Liberia, with additional support from colleagues at iHub in Nairobi and the AfriLabs Assocation. iLab’s space is made possible by funding to Ushahidi Liberia by Humanity United. Ushahidi Liberia covers the lease, electricity and data connections.
