  • IMPROVING RURAL LIGHTING

    Many people in zambia,especially those in rural areas live without access to regular electricity.The rural families and schools currently use kerosene lanterns as a lighting source.But kerosene emits unhealthy fumes which produces extremely dim light and far too often ends up burning people or homes in accidents. kerosene lamps pose a fire hazard and the fumes(each kerosine lamp gives off about 250kg of carbon dioxide every year)harming peoples eyes,lungs and contribute to global warming.Moreover,kerosene used in these lamps is expensive and mostly unavailable in rural areas. Burning kerosene lamps indoors produces the following pollutants: -carbon dioxide (co2) causing global warming -carbon monoxide(co) replaces the oxygen indoor and can be fatal. -Nitrogen oxides and sulphur oxides(NOX,SOX)causing lung and eye infections,respiratory problems and cancer. The world Bank estimates that 780 million women and children breathing particulate laden kerosene fumes inhale the equivalent of smoke from two packs of cigarettes a day.

  • Save Badgers - Boycott Welsh Dairy Products Campaign

    The new Defra Secretary, Caroline Spelman, has said that she is looking at the science before she implements any 'cull' of badgers in England. However, contradicting reports have said that 'culling' is imminent. Therefore, it is vital that as many people as possible write to her to ask her to do the right thing.

  • UNIQUE CHILD NETWORK

    The Unique Child (UQC) Network www.uniquechildnetwork.ning.com is a new site that aims to promote the bringing together of people worldwide who are concerned about the nature of current educational systems and their lack of focus on the wellbeing and innate potential of each child. It suggests that learning models should serve the healthy and sustainable development of the communities within which they exist and that diversity of interest and ability (i.e. not 'one size fits all) is the natural expression of any organic system. It also suggests that creativity, risk-taking and innovation are essential elements for any healthy system. It pays particular attention to the vital foundational importance of the early years and the need to protect the rights of each child as a joyful and uniquely predisposed learner. It invites dialogue, debate and contributions from those who wish to be part of the current re-visioning of approach being suggested by key thinkers of all disciplines. It also encourages the development of an evidence-based 'Science of Learning' that can challenge traditional models and better underpin our understanding of the child as a dynamic natural learner.
