You can be the winner of the $70,000 Bastiat Prize for Journalism 2011

Another opportunity for journalists/ writers anywhere in the world to win big. For those that think that writing is a 'broke' profession, then you gotta think twice as Africans are reading and promoting writings as well as encouraging writers. One site that keeps me dumbfounded  with info is at www.writersafrika.blogspot.com and i would love you all to keep a tab on it where this info and others come from.

To imagine that these guys stay up 16 hours daily updating this site twice a day in order to keep Afrika ahead naturally is commendable. Kudos to the Writers afrka team!

So much said about Human Trafficking!! Na wa Festival debuts

Monday the 13th of June marked the first day in the 10-day outing of the Nawa festival spearheaded by EXIT an Austrian based Civil Society Organisation in collaboration with the European Union, United Nations, Nollywood, NAPTIP and others. This event  which was co-sponsored by the EU to the tune of N150 Million Naira as disclosed by the Head of Delegation to Nigeria, Mr. David Mcrae, was well attended and documentaries well researched.

I was at a press conference to flag off the 2 day event in Abuja and had a first hand opportunity to savour the perks of such an awareness of a most dehumanising trade- Human trafficking. However, the NAWA festival team moves to Edo on the 15th -17th of June and finally to Lagos on the 18th -21st June 2011.

If you have time, attend and watch particularly the reality of forced labour and prostitution that Nigerians are subjected to and further begin to do something about this advocacy.

Why do we have to go to school at the expense of acquiring skill in business or work

Hi friends,
Welcome to June! I feel something really impressive about this new month. It will unwrap a lot of
new revitalised occurences especially for Nigeria as a country.

I had a heated discussion with my Mum yesterday and it gave me some insights..
Especially in Nigeria, we often are asked to study at the expense of knowing what to do to make money. even our mates who do are made to look like they are unserious or better still do not have sponsors.
We swim in this euphoria that we are just students only to be confronted by the harsh reality that we are
non-functional economically as soon as we graduate.

I thought that maybe why Developed nations are great is because, they've been able to bridge the gap between education and having economic value by encouraging vacation/ student jobs etc

Also when i imagine having to pause my education at least in a bit because i have to get a regular job, i wonder if we were born to earn a living by 'losing our life' morgaging our holidays, life, family, strength etc

Just my thoughts, what do you think?

Feel free to comment. Goodmorning!
