Today is the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty. Today we are highlighting (L to R) Merron, Rhoda, Valencia, Rolex & Emmanuel with their old school photos in honor of the progress they have made in the recent years toward their education. To end the cycle of generational poverty, we must break the cycle and give children access to the resources that it takes to transform their community, and eventually the world. With access to quality education, they become our future leaders, and Far Away Friends will be right beside them every step of the way. •
There isn’t a quick fix. It takes years. It takes teamwork. It takes a village. And we will not quit until every child in Uganda has access to quality education. Where you are born SHOULD NEVER inhibit your ability to change the world. #ForTheKids#NoWhiteSaviors
'Make a difference' says this poster (placed on a platform on the central train station in #Copenhagen) from the #rightwinged, #xenophobic#Danish People's Party, and elaborates that this party does the most to support #Danes in need. The party typically makes an effort distinguishing between how it defines Danes and Danish values and others, bordering the ridiculous. #Election time in #Denmark is up soon, and issues such as #migration, #refugees and #Islam seem to all blur our vision.
I'm sick and tired of the misinformation and the political spin, of the #racial distinctions and lack of #solidarity when it comes to lack of collaboration in #Europe when talking of issues of #vulnerable people seriously.
Thus, I turned round on Saturday on the platform when a family of 10 #Iraqis asked for my help to secure the right train. Checked their tickets, translated the info given in Danish - and assured they were in right place. ------------------ Hi, I'm Pernille aka @dunianiduara on #Instagram, and I'll be your #GV host up till next Monday. I greet you from #Copenhagen in #Denmark, which is my home base. I've been part of GV since 2011, contributing mainly from #EastAfrica where I've spent most of the past ten years working at the intersection of #journalism, #media, #civilsociety and #activism.
