They are strong, yet very soft; patient, beautiful and explicitly phenomenal. When the going gets tough, you can be sure they will find a way, for they always do.

Women! A species, blessed with the ability to nurture and deliver.

Growing up in Gulo-Makeda Woreda, a one horse part of Ethiopia would be considered boring and totally depressing by many youngsters, but not Dejen who simply enjoyed the tranquility his little town offered him.

He would wake up very early each morning, attend to his chores and then run a long distance to meet up with school. A routine he maintained most of his…

Timi Dakolo; The King of Soul and His Great Nation

“Here we stand as a people

With one song: with one voice

We’re a nation: undivided and poised

So much! Just so much! Betty Makoni would gladly tell you.

Truth be told, Liberia is probably not on anyone’s list of countries to visit in the near future. Recovering from years of civil war, the embattled country is facing another huge challenge as it battles the Ebola Virus Disease, reportedly heaviest hit in the way of casualties with efforts to curb the spread still far from implemented.
