Taking everything into consideration, it is impossible for the African people and their leaders to better their economic development. Because of the existing challenges, the African nations cannot compete against those with more resources and help from their own governments as the globalization is sweeping across the world. Of course, lots of international aids have been given to revitalize the Africans, but these aids are only loans demanded to pay back. As such, the African leaders do not have desire to develop their economies and become more dependent on foreign aids. Moreover, the spread of diseases such as the HIV/AIDS pandemic has caused hundreds of thousands die.
Firstly, the children do not have a normal childhood, nor do they go to school. In my opinion, people in America somewhat take for granted their education while children in Africa are only working. The children will turn into adults, and their future is determined on education. When they become adults, they will eventually leave the farm. The farmers are ruining children's futures and the possibility of them having a successful job.
So are the organizations around the world. They give and donate but we see no change in some countries. Africa is one of the places that are really struggling to solve this problem. Up to this date, one trillion US dollars are donated to the Africa government but up until this point, we don’t see much change in Africa. How could this happen?
Consequently, MRM would be the first adapter of the 55% Al-Zn coating technology in Africa and this would enhance their competitive advantage both in the local and global markets. However, the technology was new and not readily available. In addition it was not compatible with the existing equipment and required special skills on the part of the employees. The estimated cost of the equipment was 2.3 Billion which would be a major challenge to raise. The Kenyan economy at this time was depressed and therefore was not the appropriate time for a huge investment.
The increasing rate in which students are dropping out of college is alarming, because it will affect our society in the long term, as the students of today are the employees of tomorrow. Governments need to address this issue, because everyone’s future lies in the hands of teenagers. They need to find a solution to the increased prices in colleges relative to people’s earnings. Years ago, attending college may have been only for the people who were well off, but today having a bachelors degree holds the same value as a high school certificate did years ago. Teenagers’ aswell need to understand that attaining a bachelor’s degree is key for getting a well-paid job later on.
The gender gap in education, lack of access to certain business skills and non-inclusion in the economic sector are still prevailing issues that women are made to face in Africa. They have limited access to loans, and will most likely only be able to access one through a man representative. Social norms and dominant family laws have confined more women to less profitable ventures and domestic tasks; rather than helping hone their entrepreneurial potential by running their own firms, or making meaningful impact in the business space. The UNDP 's 2016 Africa Human Development Report estimates that economic and social discrimination against women is costing Africa about $95 billion a year. If we must grow Africa through entrepreneurship, then we must empower the girl child to succeed in the society.
We usually overestimate what is common knowledge, and forget that there was a time when we did not know the most simple of things. That is because the access to knowledge comes so easily in our society; we are surrounded by information whether it would be in school, on television screen or on the World Wide Web. Most of the people living in Africa do not have that kind of access to information; approximately 40 percent of Africans over the age of 15 are still illiterate. They don´t have good training about what to plant, when to plant or how to keep the soil productive. Just by gaining knowledge on how far apart to space seeds or how wide to dig a trench will make a dramatic improvement in productivity.
No other experience has defined my life to a greater extent than my quest to obtain a proper education. I was born and raised in Nicaragua, the second poorest country in the Western Hemisphere – a nation where the education system leaves families with low economic resources, such as my own, at a significant disadvantage. The teachers, curriculums, extracurricular activities and learning atmospheres in the few private schools are drastically superior to those in public schools. Students who cannot afford costly private schools are often at social risk and find escaping the cycle of poverty to be almost impossible. As a child, I was not completely aware of the disadvantages my family faced.
Abstract Despite significant improvements in health indicators across Africa, it is obvious that the public health sector alone cannot address all of the health issues in their communities due to lack of material, human, and technical resources as well as problems of health care system management and corruption. Partnerships between international nonprofits and public health sectors can combine the longevity and infrastructure of the public health sector with the resources, technical expertise, and flexibility of nonprofits. Although such partnerships have been on the development agenda since the 1980s, many of these partnerships have failed to produce authentic partnerships that equally reflect both donor and public health sector priorities
There are currently 23 public universities and universities of technology in South Africa, This increase has brought both positive and negative impacts on the education industry. One of the positive impacts is that the increase has actually accommodated more people to get a chance to study further after high school. And one of the negative impacts is that the increase has created a gap for business where high fees are charged and sees a number of unregistered institutions, called “fly-by-nights”. Most students and parents are tricked into registering with these institutions only to find later that their qualifications are not recognized. This negative impact shows how some people have found ways to make business out of education.
