Smetiště v Lusace – živná půda pro choleru Street News Service 20/01/2019

The gender divide in Africa - breaking the glass ceiling Street News Service 13/01/2019

International protocols, by their very nature, can be long on optimism and short on pragmatism.

Emancipatie in Afrika – hoe kan het glazen plafond worden doorbroken? Street News Service 13/01/2019

PEAP… NUSAF… RDS…NAADS… The acronyms have been as bland as they have been varied. The opponent remains the same and as obdurate as ever. Similarly, the end result is still just as predictable. Whatever the approach and despite years of endeavour, it’s safe to say that Uganda’s struggle against poverty remains just that; a struggle, and especially one with no triumph in sight.
