Is there an answer? Are our leaders and engineers equipped to solve this problem? Are we willing to obey the rules and take measures to end the floods of Accra and other parts of the country?

2018 and yet another flooding in Accra

Written by Ruth Abla Adjorlolo - Lives lost, properties destroyed and then the Decision-Makers get in a helicopter to fly over Accra to survey the extent of devastation.

The human race was meant to make a better livelihood for the next generation. In the Western countries, every generation, salutes the ones that came before it. Unfortunately, on our African continent, every generation blames the one before it.

Written By Ewurama S. Aggrey-Smith - “Where there is a will, there is a way.” If we are determined enough, we can find a way to achieve massive results for Ghana, our Motherland.

Written By Alex Blege  - Although the World Day Against Child Labour is celebrated on June 12 every year, this year (2018) the International Labour Organisation, (ILO) is organising a joint campaign with the World Day for Safety and Health at Work which is celebrated on April 28 every year to create awareness and help end child labour in all forms as well as improve safety and health of young workers. Safety and health at work as well as child labour border on the human rights of young people across the globe. These two issues fall under Sustainable Development Goals Eight with a target which enjoins countries to take immediate and effective measures to eradicate forced labour, end modern day slavery and human trafficking, secure the prohibition and elimination of the worst forms of child labour, including recruitment and use of child soldiers and by 2025 end child labour in all its forms.
