As we anticipate a youth friendly budget…Looking upon health and education.
A healthy mind and body is one of the greatest components for children’s participation and contribution in their self-development. The situation is a bit different for girls as they reach that level of puberty, the time they begin their menstrual cycle. The majority of girls are caught unaware and the situation is even worse to those who can’t afford to procure proper sanitary wear.
Major highlights of the year 2016 as it comes to an end
The year 2016 was an eventful one, starting off with the traditional rumour of President Mugabe's death, protests in Chitungwiza and the demolition of people's homes in some surburbs around Harare, this year witnessed the birth of protests movements to fight some of the government's policies.
The introduction of bond notes in Zimbabwe has not been as apocalyptic as predicted by critics. Nor has it been as positive as anticipated by those that support their introduction. And in both cases, the politics of the bond notes has been muted. Despite some demonstrations planned and threats of arrest and detention of those opposed to them, no political party has gone full throttle in favour of or in rejection of them.
Menstruation: The lived realities of young rural girls
Research revealed among other things that 72 percent of rural primary school girls that menstruate in Zimbabwe do not use sanitary pads. 20 percent do not attend school during their menstrual periods because they cannot afford sanitary wear while 45 percent use pieces of old clothes, cow dung, tree leaves and fresh grass posing a serious health risk on their well being.
Human development across the span of time has been congruent with the growth of society, nations, civilizations, even nations. Societies stem from individuals, their families and subfamilies to communities and ascend to nations at exponential ratios that carry a seed of national and ecological firing order. This inherent order predetermines a people’s identity and this identity reversibly determines this order, seen or unseen. Individuals ,families, communities even nations fail or succeed at given instances of time but life as dictated by the flawless impetus of time goes on or must go on.
