The Role of Worldreader in achieving SDG 4 – Inclusive, Equitable and Quality Education: The East African Perspective

By Joan Mwachi-Amolo (Kenya) Sustainable Development Goal 4 (SDG 4) aims to “ensure inclusive, equitable and quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all.” Among its several core targets are universal youth literacy, early childhood development, universal pre-primary, primary and secondary education, and education for sustainable development and global citizenship.

The Role of Libraries in realising SDG 4 – Inclusive, Equitable and Quality Education: The West African Perspective

By Nkem Osuigwe Libraries exist within the formal and informal sectors of the learning ecosystem. They are very important to learning in schools and in the different communities where they live all over Africa. They are critical for achieving an inclusive, equitable, and quality education where no one is left behind including those who are in employment and cannot attend school full-time and/or are taking online courses. They are also critical for those who have fallen through the cracks of the educational system as school dropouts at various stages of their educational journey or out-of-school children.

What to Do When You Are in the Pit

Psalm 40 These are very difficult and challenging times, but this should not come as a surprise to those who believe in Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Saviour. In fact, Jesus told His disciples to expect trials. He begins John 16 by stating (John 16:1, 2), “All this I have told you so that you will not go astray. They will put you out of the synagogue; in fact, a time is coming when anyone who kills you will think he is offering a sacrifice to God.” He ends that chapter in a similar vein (16:33), “I have told

Social Media Etiquette for Business Owners

So you're about to start a business, probably having perfected a skill and are ready to start from where you are. It's a business you're starting from scratch with probably very little capital, so getting an office or shop space at the moment may not be ideal. Many started in their garage or a room set up for this purpose. And if it's food-based, then most likely, your kitchen. Before the business gets to the point where you start talking about a workshop, factory, or warehouse, there's a place you start showing up daily. This place is called social media, and many
