This is the story of Lale Labuko, humanitarian and National Geographic emerging explorer, who works to end the ancient practice of "mingi", the ritual sacrifice of children believed to be cursed. Together Labuko and National Geographic photographer, video game executive, and philanthropist, John Rowe, have formed "Omo Child", an organization that is rescuing these children and working to educate the tribes people and eradicate the practice from the Ethiopia Valley.

Video from: http://omochild.org/

I wonder why Muslim leaders have not stepped up to the plate to address Boko Haram directly. Why have these Islamic leaders not gone to the front lines for innocent children?

The responsibility of religious leaders is to preach good morals, whiles the state maintain law and order. Crime has no place in any religion

It's been three months since the Nigerian school girls were kidnapped. Time to renew the campaign-- #BringBackOurGirls -- and help them and others get to school. Here's my column on how to do that.
Leaders love to talk a good game on promoting education, but they don’t deliver.

How much do you know of the document that rules your life as a Ghanaian, defines who you are, and determines the terrrain and the thresholds of your rights and freedoms? How much do you know of the Constitution of Ghana?
Like 'The Daily Constitution' page and receive daily updates, explanations, pictures, history, notice on events and programmes. The Daily Constitution ... it's a daily meditation affair. No fast things here. :D

“As we promote free movement within the ECOWAS region we must also facilitate community level collaboration particularly among border communities across different countries. Such collaboration between border communities could be crucial for the attainment of universal healthcare coverage in West Africa,” he said.

He, therefore, congratulated WAHO for its remarkable achievement since its establishment 27 years ago and assured the organization of Ghana’s preparedness to work closely with member countries to ensure quality healthcare for the people within the sub-region.
