If we destroy our continent through bad policies, corruption and petty trivial differences, what would our children have to fall back on?

“What counts in life is not the mere fact that we have lived. It is what difference we have made to the lives of others that will determine the significance of the life we lead.” – Nelson Mandela
Mandela Day calls on us all, every day, to make the world a better place. Each year on 18 July we look back on what has been done, and forward to what will be done.This year marks 100 years since the birth of Nelson Mandela. Mandela Day not only celebrates the life and legacy of Nelson but it also a global call to action that celebrates the idea that each and every individual has the power to transform the world and the ability to make an impact. In November 2009, the UN General Assembly declared 18 July "Nelson Mandela International Day" in recognition of the former South African President’s contribution to the culture of peace and freedom.General Assembly resolution A/RES/64/13 recognizes Nelson Mandela’s values and his dedication to the service of humanity, in the fields of conflict resolution, race relations, the promotion and protection of human rights, reconciliation, gender equality and the rights of children and other vulnerable groups, as well as the fight against poverty and the promotion of social justice. It acknowledges his contribution to the struggle for democracy internationally and the promotion of a culture of peace throughout the world.

🙌🏾| [SWIPE LEFT] As we conclude the #YouthMonth
, I’m reminded of a lunch that was hosted by @msntuli
together with #IgniteSA
team on their #CapeTown
leg of the ‘Firestarters’ sometime ago. Room filled with #empowering
conversations and brilliant company of young Powerhouses. A view from us on ‘What #leadership
in our country and continent will aspire to be, will aspire to do and aspire to deliver in the next 10 to 15 years!’. So, Lynette your light still impacts us in such a powerful way! #AfricasFuture
"Africa’s education crisis seldom makes media headlines or summit agendas and analysis by the Brookings Center for Universal Education (CUE) explains why this needs to change. With one-in-three children still out of school, progress towards universal primary education has stalled. Meanwhile, learning levels among children who are in school are abysmal. Using a newly developed Learning Barometer, CUE estimates that 61 million African children will reach adolescence lacking even the most basic literacy and numeracy skills. Failure to tackle the learning deficit will deprive a whole generation of opportunities to develop their potential and escape poverty. And it will undermine prospect for dynamic growth with shared prosperity.
If you want a glimpse into Africa’s education crisis there is no better vantage point than the town of Bodinga, located in the impoverished Savannah region of Sokoto state in northwestern Nigeria. Drop into one of the local primary schools and you’ll typically find more than 50 students crammed into a class. Just a few will have textbooks. If the teacher is there, and they are often absent, the children will be on the receiving end of a monotone recitation geared towards rote learning.
Not that there is much learning going on. One recent survey found that 80 percent of Sokoto’s Grade 3 pupils cannot read a single word. They have gone through three years of zero value-added schooling." -Brookings Article "Too Little Access, Not Enough Learning: Africa’s Twin Deficit in Education" With this sad reality in Nigeria, it is no surprise that the nation is so backward, with corruption and crime plaguing the entire nation. It takes a "truly educated" population to tackle the massive problems dragging Nigeria behind in these times. Education strong enough to #empower

Join us for a free talk on 'Math and rabies control’ by Dr Jonathan Dushoff, McMaster University Department of Biology
Abstract: Rabies is a horrifying disease whose effects on humans are almost entirely preventable. Within the last decade rabies has been recognized as a global public-health priority, and some areas of the world have made large strides in control, while others continue to struggle. This talk will discuss the role of mathematical modeling, and novel statistical approaches, in: elucidating patterns of rabies spread; informing intervention strategies; and evaluating control progress and prospects.
Date: Tuesday 5 June 2018
Time: 18:45 for 19:00
Venue: African Institute for Mathematical Sciences, 6 Melrose Road, Muizenberg

This is a Shona song whose storyline is the cry of the Zimbawean mother or parents rather. Due to the economic crisis amongst many problems, the people of Zimbabwe the youth in particular have been forced to relocate and move either West or East of the world and South Africa mainly.
They find themselves at the mercy of racism, abuse of all sorts and the most heartbreaking xenophobia from our South African brothers who seem to have forgotten so quickly that our people also fought for the liberation of their country and that our Zimbabwe was a hiding and survival place for their people during their war of liberation.
The parents are heartbroken at how poverty has separated them from their children.And live in constant fear for their childrens lives as they know the danger their lives in by just virtue of being foreigners in other countries. The parents turn to religion and God for comfort and they cry that they had hoped an angel would come to the rescue of their people but none seems to be coming. Hope sooner than later Zimbabweans will realise that no help is coming they are their own rescue plan. And that eventually the excellence of every single Zimbabwean combined with the right dosage of patriotism becomes the excellence of a nation. Love you Zimbabwe

What happens after being a tutor at AIMS for 1 year?
There is no set path, but let's look at the journey of our very own AIMS Family member Martha N. Kamkuemah. Prior to being a tutor at AIMS South Africa she worked as an Analyst Programmer for the Namibia Power Corporation. Now she is a PhD student with Stellenbosch University. Her research is on the specification and analysis of security loopholes in information systems. She also works part-time as a Data Scientist for Ixio Analytics, and teaches Python programming to the AIMS Structured Masters students. In February she presented a #JournalClub
talk on "The net of devices using TCP". #powerhouse #AIMSFamily #africasfuture
Because god is a dancer 😊😍
