Main Commentary

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 state of the dream: A perspective from Guruve

 By Kudakwashe Chakabva

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.
