AFRICAN COLUMN

We are youths from different countries across Africa and diaspora who believe that for Africa to develop more, Africans especially the youths have to come together and understand that it’s their responsibility to build their continent instead of always counting on foreign intervention. We identified an information gap that is generally left by the media which needs to be bridged by harnessing the power of social media platforms to collectively channel our voices to the  Africans especially youths and children through compelling writing, entertainment, media, education, and other forms of digital creation.

New World, Expired Systems

Our systems in Africa are mostly inherited from our colonizers. Each African country celebrates independence every year, celebrating freedom from the colonizers but we still do things the way they taught us. Our judiciary, community setup, way of dressing, and the education system itself.

GRIEF AND GOD

I have noticed that when some people are experiencing the worst moments in their lives they do not want to be told about God. When they are at their lowest, they do not understand God and they mostly question His existence.

Mental Health and Aging.

People have misconceptions about ageing in relation to mental health, most think that all elders are demented which is not true and they have different myths about ageing like; the majority of the older people are mentally ill, older people contribute nothing to the society, to be old is to be sick all the time and a burden to the care takers.

With an economy of $2.6 trillion (Nominal), $6.7 trillion (PPP), and a population of approximately 1.3 billion people, technically, three-quarters of the African population is unemployed.

Say “NO” to Stressful Life

Stress is one of the most escalating issues that is affecting the normal functioning of people today in areas of work, families, and relationships, in other words, it threatens people’s well-being.

My hometown is all African countries

My hometown is all African countries.

Here are some facts about kids in my hometown, which translate to several others;
We are born with nothing on us, but God’s luck, and blessings from our parents. It’s not an easy journey to grow up in such a town, but whether born in slums or marked urban areas, we thrive.

African kids grow up being raised by a bunch of guardians, well-wishers, and even those we least expect to care for us. Every individual takes on the task with great gratitude. We feed on what is available; provided by family, and community. There’s oneness in my hometown, there’s love in Africa.

As we grow up, we find ourselves in an ocean of friends who we turn to almost in or for everything. With them, we try the unthinkable, the illegal, and surprisingly, we sometimes do the right thing at the right time.

Like Africa, in my hometown, every individual lives a life he/she can afford. Many of us see trends in this and wish to be part, but the bridge between is far for us to join. We end up enjoying in our possible ways however different they may be.

Then we all gather together, each having another’s back in times of trouble, irrespective of the size of the pocket. We always keep that spirit of family and move it with the community at large, trying as much as we can not to leave anyone behind. There is Unity in my hometown. There’s brotherhood in Africa.

No one in my hometown moves beyond limits just to impress or be impressed by others. Many of us know our weaknesses, but we use them to find better lives for ourselves and the future generations at large.

In short, we are a small society with a humble way of living a lifestyle one can afford. Holding hands, whenever need be, keeping the unity alive and active. So should my hometown stay. So should Africa always be.
