FIVE GIRLS RESTORING HOPE WITH AN APP TO FIGHT FGM

04. 07. 2018 || A BOLD ACTION

It’s done in secret at night. You are home for the holidays from boarding school, as there is no school in your rural community in Kenya. You are excited to see your family, but you are also filled with dread. It is circumcision season, and you are 13.

You listen carefully to the conversations at home, wondering which night it will happen, hoping you can run away into the night before the elderly woman with the knife comes. At age 13, a girl becomes a woman in your tribe by undergoing female genital mutilation (FGM) — the partial or total removal of a girl’s external genitals. It’s a rite of passage in your tribe and makes you eligible for marriage. You don’t want to marry; you’re young and want to stay in school. But your parents have other plans.

THREE STEPS TO GREEN: HOW TO GET INVOLVED IN THE CLIMATE MOVEMENT

Mar 14, 2018 || Eco-Post

ReBLOG – The Climate Reality PROJECT

The headlines can be discouraging. Severe storms and wildfires are striking with more and more intensity due to rising global temperatures and a rapidly changing climate system. Meanwhile, the US continues to roll back critical climate policies and has maintained its irresponsible and very lonely decision to withdraw from the Paris Agreement. But instead of feeling defeated, citizens – from all ages and backgrounds – are fighting back by standing up for clean energy and against the fossil fuel agenda. The movement is growing stronger every day, and our efforts together are getting results.Just look at what’s happening, both in the US and around the world. Young people are suing the Trump Administration for failing to address climate change. Grassroots organizations have pressured US cities to double climate efforts, and at least 47 have already committed to 100 percent renewable electricity. Internationally, climate action is also accelerating as several countries have stepped up their ambition to reduce emissions and install more clean energy, helping to fill the global leadership void left by the US.Are you ready to join the movement? We understand that speaking up can feel overwhelming. But it doesn’t have to be. We broke the process down into three simple steps.

WORLD CUP FEVER SEASON

Its another World Cup season, can I hear someone say yea yea!

Its that time in our lives where our nations compete among themselves and all of iys are officially not friends anymore because we have to support our individual nations.

Its that time of the year where club team members play against themselves live Ronaldo can play against Ramos and so on….

Its that time when some people catch fever. They instill the fever upon themselves because of the heart ache and disappointment they’ll get.

My country, great Nigeria, has not been helping matters, losing in their friendly matches, just wondering what will now happen during the main thing! Well, we always call on God even when He has called us to do the right thing, it is well! Our tshirt is official the best in the World, i can proud in that!

that’s us in the middle

My colleague is planning on hosting us during the first match we play, and I’m so expectant not necessarily because Nigeria is playing that day but because of what my colleague would give us. He has been “making mouth” about hosting us that I’m so eager to experience it, it better be good, lol!

Anyways, I hope I don’t catch the fever, because football is a very emotional game for me. For those who have mortgaged their lives in a bet during this World Cup I hope your life is worth every meaning, just in case. A lot of people are betting, a lot have promised, a lots are still jumping into the band wagon of making profits from the World Cup…..

Please its just a game, don’t hate the player, the spectators or even the game! Feel every moment without catching any fever, because after the World Cup life continues, your no thou targets won’t suddenly disappear because your nation won or lost!

A PATRIARCH OF FAITH

Mar 03, 2018 | A Life Well Lived

BILLY GRAHAM

“I have one message: that Jesus Christ came, he died on a cross, he rose again, and he asked us to repent of our sins and receive him by faith as Lord and Savior, and if we do, we have forgiveness of all of our sins.” —Billy Graham
A forerunner and an evangelist at revival meetings, and on radio and television for over 40 years, born on November 7, 1918, in Charlotte, North Carolina, Billy Graham helped bind together a vulnerable nation through religious revival. By glazing over the finer details of Christianity and focusing on more moderate doctrines, Graham made evangelism enticing, non-threatening, even easy—and the media made his messages accessible to the masses.
