School closures impact not only students, teachers, and families but have far-reaching economic and societal consequences. School closures in response to the pandemic have shed light on various social and economic issues, including student debt, digital learning, food insecurity, and homelessness, as well as access to childcare, health care, housing, internet, and disability services. The impact was more severe for disadvantaged children and their families, causing interrupted learning, compromised nutrition, childcare problems, and consequent economic cost to families who could not work.
Many of the priorities of SDG3 (good health and well-being) are relevant for the surge response and recovery from COVID-19. This is why the U.N. has called the pandemic “an opportunity for the human family to act in solidarity” to achieve the SDGs. So the SDGs actually provide the agenda for a sustainable global response to COVID-19—sustainable in that the response to this emergency should not lead to a neglect of the critical elements for equitable, affordable health care for all.
In light of the pandemic’s effects on the food and agricultural sector, prompt measures are needed to ensure that food supply chains are kept alive to mitigate the risk of large shocks that have a considerable impact on everybody, especially on the poor and the most vulnerable
Even before COVID-19 the world was off track to end poverty by 2030 under SDG 1, with projections suggesting that 6% of the global population would still be living in extreme poverty in 2030. Now, an estimated 71 million additional people could be living in extreme poverty due to COVID-19. Although income inequality has been falling in some countries, a global economic recession in the wake of the pandemic could push millions back into poverty and aggravate inequalities.
Adopted from The Lancent
The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), otherwise known as the Global Goals, are a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity.
These 17 Goals build on the successes of the Millennium Development Goals, while including new areas such as climate change, economic inequality, innovation, sustainable consumption, peace and justice, among other priorities. The goals are interconnected. Often, the key to success on one will involve tackling issues more commonly associated with another.
The SDGs work in the spirit of partnership and pragmatism to make the right choices now to improve life, in a sustainable way, for future generations. They provide clear guidelines and targets for all countries to adopt in accordance with their own priorities and the environmental challenges of the world at large. The SDGs are an inclusive agenda. They tackle the root causes of poverty and unite us together to make a positive change for both people and planet.

Today being International Albinism Awareness Day, it is important we understand what Albinism is, and why we need to care.
Albinism is a rare, non-contagious, genetically inherited difference present at birth. In almost all types of albinism, both parents must carry the gene for it to be passed on, even if they do not have albinism themselves. The condition is found in both sexes regardless of ethnicity and in all countries of the world. Albinism results in a lack of pigmentation (melanin) in the hair, skin and eyes, causing vulnerability to the sun and bright light. As a result, almost all people with albinism are visually impaired and are prone to developing skin cancer. There is no cure for the absence of melanin that is central to albinism.
While numbers vary, it is estimated that in North America and Europe 1 in every 17,000 to 20,000 people have some form of albinism. The condition is much more prevalent in sub-Saharan Africa, with estimates of 1 in 1,400 people being affected in Tanzania and prevalence as high as 1 in 1,000 reported for select populations in Zimbabwe and for other specific ethnic groups in Southern Africa.
Health challenges of people living with albinism
The lack of melanin means persons with albinism are highly vulnerable to developing skin cancer. In some countries, a majority of persons with albinism die from skin cancer between 30 and 40 years of age. Skin cancer is highly preventable when persons with albinism enjoy their right to health. This includes access to regular health checks, sunscreen, sunglasses and sun-protective clothing. In a significant number of countries, these life-saving means are unavailable or inaccessible to them. Consequently, in the realm of development measures, persons with albinism have been and are among those “left furthest behind.” Therefore, they ought to be targeted for human rights interventions in the manner envisioned by the Sustainable Development Goals.

Let us give our coming generations a healthier and happier environment to have a beautiful life… Best wishes on World Environment Day.

Message from WMK president on fight against COVID 19 in Swahili version.
What if we all decide to follow government directives? What if we take individual responsibility in the fight against #covid 19? By washing our hands more often, staying at home and leave only when necessary, wearing a mask in public and keeping social distance. Then, we will have helped in reducing the number of new infections and in the long run the curve will flatten.
And what does that mean 🤷🏽♀️, we go back to living normal lives and continue making the world a better place than we found it.
So take charge, take responsibility and let's fight this enemy, covid-19 💪🏾💪🏾

“Coronaviruses are not particularly tough. Soap and water, used properly, will dislodge the virus from your hands and can destroy their outer surface area. Wet your hands under running water (can be warm or cold), apply soap, lather your hands well and scrub all over, then rinse your hands under running water for at least 20 seconds.
Alcohol based hand sanitizers should also kill the new corona virus. However, make sure your hand sanitizer actually has at least 60% alcohol (many do not). Hand sanitizer really should be secondary to washing your hands with soap. In some situations (when you’re in public) it isn’t possible to wash your hands, and sanitizer can then be helpful. Most of us should now be staying home and should have access to soap and water. Also, try to not touch your face. This can be difficult but with practice you can reduce the frequency and duration of face touching.”
"We need courage, we need to be brave, and right now who else is doing that but the healthcare workers,"
#Thanks the Bravehearts
