Liberia among 18 Countries Reported for Abuse against Children

first_imgOn June 14, this year in Barnersville, Monrovia, 19-year-old Liberian student attempted to end his life by swallowing four valium tablets because his friends taunted him, bullying him for his reported failure to have immigrated to Canada. “I want to die…leave me to die…let me die!” the half-conscious young man was cried, simply because of the teasing from his friends.This account seems rather isolated but, a new poll conducted by UNICEF and their partners shows that more than nine out of 10 young people believe bullying is a pervasive problem in their communities; and two-thirds say they have experienced bullying firsthand. The poll was conducted through U-Report, a rapidly growing youth engagement tool that provides a platform for over 2 million young ‘U-Reporters’ from more than 20 countries. Through the poll, young people were asked via SMS, Facebook and Twitter a series of questions relating to the impact of bullying in their community, their own personal experiences of bullying and what they think can be done to end this type of violence. More than 100,000 U-Reporters, recruited by partners such as the Scouts and Girl Guides, with an estimated age of 13-30, participated in the poll, including young people from Senegal, Mexico, Uganda, Sierra Leone, Liberia, Mozambique, Ukraine, Chile, Malaysia, Nigeria, Swaziland,Pakistan, Ireland, Burkina Faso, Mali, Guinea, Indonesia, Zambia and through the Global U-Report channel. “Bullying, including online bullying, remains a largely misunderstood risk to the wellbeing of children and young people,” said UNICEF’s Senior Adviser on Child Protection, Theresa Kilbane. “To end this type of violence, we must improve public awareness of the harmful impact of bullying, equip teachers, parents and peers with the skills to identify risks and report incidents, and provide care and protection for victims.”Other findings from the U-Report poll said: One-third of respondents thought being bullied was normal so they did not tell anyone; the majority of respondents who reported being victims of bullying said they were bullied because of their physical appearance. Bullying was also attributed to gender or sexual orientation and ethnicity; and one quarter of victims said they did not know who to tell.Over eight in 10 respondents believe that raising awareness, including through teacher training, will help children to feel comfortable reporting bullying is one way to address the issue in schools. The United Nations Children Fund (UNICEF) works to engage children and adolescents on the impact of bullying as part of its global End Violence Against Children initiative including through the U-Report platform and through global social media campaigns (#ENDViolence). UNICEF, together with its partners, also work to strengthen education systems in schools and establish strong referral systems for child welfare.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

FAO, UNDP Use Village Savings and Loans Program to Empower Farmers

first_imgBeneficiaries of the Village savings and loans program distribute money among members.The United Nations Peacebuilding project, jointly implemented by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) focusing on components within their mandate and comparative advantage, continues to reach out to the most vulnerable rural populations especially young women by providing the needed alternative livelihood opportunities.The Multi-Partnership Trust Fund Project titled: “Strengthening Conflict Prevention through the Establishment of Multi-stakeholders Platforms and Improved Alternative Livelihoods” led by FAO, is providing increased support to nine (9) concession affected communities in Bomi (Gbar-Jakeh, Beh-sao and Moore Town) and Nimba (Sippi Town, Zolowee, Minkinto and Sayeaga).The two agencies are jointly coordinating their efforts alongside the Government of Liberia to reach out to over 1500 direct beneficiaries in Bomi and Nimba Counties.UNDP coordinates the aspects on establishing and capacitating multi-stakeholder platforms (MSPs) that incorporate opinion leaders including civil society representatives and local leaders (town chiefs, commissioners, women and youth) and (MSP) is strategically positioned between the government, concessionaires, and these communities. The MSP is “an innovative approach for peacebuilding and social cohesion. It works to ensure effective prevention and resolution of concessions land-related conflicts. These platforms have helped resolve differences amicably, preserving agreements between all parties through MoUs and consensus”.FAO leads the component that helps provide sustainable alternative livelihood to affected communities. Through a local Implementing Partner “Universal Empowerment Mission”, FAO rolled out an intensive two-week capacity development exercise for targeted beneficiaries simultaneously in the seven (7) project communities in the two counties. The exercise aimed to equip the beneficiaries with skills and knowledge in Business Management and Marketing, and Village Savings and Loan Association (VSLA) for sustainable access to credit, agriculture-based income generating activities and social cohesion in group spirit. The training targeted seven (7) VSLA groups comprising 240 young women (cassava, poultry and vegetables producers) across the two project counties.FAO provided agriculture inputs and post-harvest facilities In addition to the VSLA and Business Management and Marketing capacity enhancement support, FAO is providing support to the farming communities consisting of women farmers who make up majority of Liberia’s smallholder producers and agricultural labour force with improved rice seeds, cassava cuttings and hand tools, backed by extension services to enhance production and productivity.Two post-harvest facilities have been constructed and equipped with agro processors in the counties to enable farmers minimize post-harvest losses.Farmers embraced the ideas of FAO and government of Liberia  Emmanuel N. Zangbory, Secretary of the SLAC Farmers’ Cooperative in Nimba County, which hosts four communities, described the training as “rewarding” adding, “This is the first time for such a training to be introduced to our farmers. This is helpful, it will encourage the women to get involved in agriculture.”He noted that since the introduction of the project in the four communities, farmers have been actively, working in groups, and agricultural activities are moving well among them. “The women here only depend on farming, this will be a great help for them,” he added.George Dale, Program Officer, Universal Empowerment Mission, added that from the training, the women have established by-laws and constitutions that will ensure effective regulation and management of the groups activities and engender them sustainably. “We introduced to them group election, meeting procedures, business management and social fund policies and practices as well as constitutional development,” he noted. Further, he mentioned that the training also provided the opportunity for the groups to have a broader knowledge on loan disbursement and repayment to enable them to identify their income at the end of the cycle. He added that the project is a unifier as women are brought together and united under a common purpose, expressed enthusiasm in acquiring the knowledge to enhance their agriculture activities.A clearly ecstatic Bendu Scott, Chairlady, “Think for tomorrow” VSLA group in Beh-sao, Bomi County, took the podium, and speaking on behalf of her group, requested FAO for additional support to consider expanding the training to reach out to other women.The chairlady of the thirty (30) women’s group underscored the importance of the training, “We are so happy for your support. We appeal to FAO to provide similar support to other women who are not part of this training. This is an opportunity that is provided to help us increase our production.” She added that women from the three communities (Gbar-Jakeh, Beh-sao and Moore Town), in Bomi benefited from the training.She noted that the VSLA introduced by FAO will improve their agriculture production, empower them economically and improve their self-reliance (dependence on their husbands).Next StepsWorking through the Government of Liberia, FAO Liberia, UNDP, and its partners, will ensure that gains made are sustained. To this end, some capacity support has been provided to the GoL to undertake monitoring and follow-up actions through the decentralized structures of the Ministry of Agriculture and the National Bureau of Concessions.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

L.A. jail system in need of funds

first_imgSHERMAN OAKS – Los Angeles County needs $300 million to redesign its jail system to accommodate the growing number of felons and avoid the kind of inmate violence seen at area detention centers last month, a top sheriff’s official said Wednesday. Marc Klugman, chief of the Sheriff’s Correctional Services Division, addressed a meeting of the Sherman Oaks Homeowners’ Association, covering a range of topics that included jail riots, mental illness among detainees and the controversial early-release program. “When you hear about the early-release policy, that is a despicable policy I oversee because I have no choice,” said the 32-year veteran of the Sheriff’s Department. “I don’t like it. I’m not proud of it. It’s the opposite of what I’d like to do.” Aggravating the early-release program is the fact that most county facilities are designed to hold inmates awaiting trial on misdemeanor charges, he said. But the vast majority of county inmates are charged with felonies, like murder. Just 9 percent of county inmates are facing trial for misdemeanor crimes, so officials are often forced to release felons.

Klugman said tight budgets have made it difficult to run the vast jail system. The Los Angeles County Department of Corrections, he said, is considered the largest mental health facility in the nation, housing some 2,000 mentally ill men and 400 women. County officials are expected next week to discuss ways of generating the estimated $300 million Klugman said was needed to improve conditions in the jail system. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Specsavers hosting Hearcare Open Day with free tests and advice this August

first_imgSPECSAVERS Audiologists in Donegal Town, Letterkenny and Sligo are hosting a walk-in Hearcare Open Day next month to encourage locals to prioritise their hearing health.On special dates in the first week of August, the Specsavers team will host a representative from hearing aid experts Phonak, who will be on hand to meet with locals, discuss any hearing issues they may be having and offer free hearing tests, as well as highlighting the benefits of the new Phonak Marvel Hearing Aids.Drop by your nearest Hearcare Open Day at the times below: Sligo Specsavers Hearcare Centre, Quayside Shopping Centre,  1st August 2019 started 10am until 4pmDonegal Town Specsavers Hearcare Centre, The Diamond 2nd August 2019 10am to 4pmLetterkenny Specsavers Hearcare Centre, 64 Port Road 8th August 2019 10am to 4pmResearch*, recently commissioned by Specsavers, reveals that just over half of adults (52%) in Ulster regularly worry about losing their hearing, yet only 27% of people would act quickly (within a week) if they noticed a change in their hearing. Hearing loss affects around one in six Irish adults, yet the main reason people cite for not having regular hearing tests is that they believed their hearing to be fine. In actual fact, hearing loss can be gradual, and many people may not notice they are struggling. Just under a third of people (32%) in Ulster say they would be less inclined to go to social events in fear they would not be able to hear people properly.Audiologist at Specsavers Letterkenny, Martina McNulty, stresses that the speed of deterioration and the effects can often be reduced with hearing protection and early intervention.‘Hearing aids work to enhance your existing hearing so early detection and intervention is crucial. Untreated hearing loss can have far-reaching implications beyond hearing and has been linked to feelings of depression, frustration and anxiety. Our representative from hearing aid brand Phonak will provide customers with professional audiology advice and can determine a suitable type of hearing aid based on their lifestyle and hearing needs.’Specsavers Letterkenny Audiologist Martina McNulty. Photo Clive WassonThe new Phonak Marvel Hearing Aids, which will be highlighted at the Hearcare Open Days, offer a multitude of benefits. The Bluetooth features mean it can connect directly to either iOS or Android smartphones or other Bluetooth enabled phones and be used for hands-free calls, for listening to TV, music, e-books, podcasts and so much more. Marvel Hearing Aids can distinguish between streamed speech and music signals for an optimised sound quality and are available with powerful rechargeable technology.Martina together with her professional hearing team will also be on hand at the Letterkenny Specsavers Hearcare Centre on Thursday, 8 August carrying out demonstrations using the latest technology in an effort to remove stigmas around the wearing of hearing aids.Martina continues: ‘Common misconceptions around hearing aids can discourage people from initially seeking treatment and wearing the devices. The truth is that modern hearing aids can be discreet, can improve both hearing loss and overall quality of life, but are also cost effective at Specsavers stores. We have an extensive range of hearing aids featuring the newest innovations, with highly trained hearing healthcare professionals that will help you pick the right device for you. With PRSI benefits, cost doesn’t need to be a major concern.’On a positive note, attitudes towards wearing hearing aids seems to be shifting, with (91%) of those surveyed in Ulster saying that they would prefer to wear them if it was recommended. Some 85% agree that hearing aids can drastically improve your standard of life. However, fears relating to appearance (33%), cost (62%) and how people believe they age you (31%) are among the biggest deterrents to wearing hearing aids.For anyone interested in visiting the Hearcare Open Day, drop by Specsavers Donegal Town, Letterkenny or Quayside Sligo on the following dates:  Sligo Specsavers Hearcare Centre, Quayside Shopping Centre, 1st August 2019 starting 10am until 4pmDonegal Town Specsavers Hearcare Centre, The Diamond 2nd August 2019 10am to 4pmLetterkenny Specsavers Hearcare Centre, 64 Port Road 8th August 2019 10am to 4pmFor further information, contact Specsavers Letterkenny on 074 916 7040 or visit https://www.specsavers.ie/stores to find your nearest centre.Specsavers hosting Hearcare Open Day with free tests and advice this August was last modified: July 28th, 2019 by Rachel McLaughlinShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:audiologistHearcare CentreHearcare Open DayHearingSpecsaverslast_img read more

Chelsea ‘ready to turn to Spurs boss Redknapp’

first_imgChelsea are ready to turn to Harry Redknapp after the Tottenham boss was snubbed by England, according to the Daily Star.It is claimed that Blues owner Roman Abramovich is a fan of Redknapp’s attacking brand of football and the former West Ham manager is now a serious contender to take over at Stamford Bridge.Abramovich’s shortlist is still believed to be headed by Pep Guardiola, who insists he will take time out of football following his recent departure from Barcelona.The Daily Mirror and The Sun both say Redknapp’s future at White Hart Lane is in doubt after talks over a new contract stalled.Meanwhile, The Independent suggest Chelsea goalkeeper Peter Cech has urged interim boss Roberto Di Matteo to play with two up front so that Fernando Torres can partner Didier Drogba.“I’d start both,” Cech said. “I believe it is possible but I don’t know whether it would be done or if it would work.“I am sure one day it will happen and there will be goals.”Click here for Monday’s Chelsea quiz Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

Tottenham proved a point – Pochettino

first_imgEmbed from Getty ImagesMauricio Pochettino believes Tottenham’s win over Chelsea proved they can compete with the best teams in Europe.Dele Alli scored twice in a 2-0 victory for Spurs that lifted the north London side to third in the Premier League.It also ended leaders Chelsea’s 13-match winning run, denying them a record 14th consecutive top-flight victory.Spurs boss Pochettino said: “Today we started (to show) what it means to be competitive.Embed from Getty Images“Maybe that was the problem last season. We missed how to compete in a better way. You need to play, you need to suffer and you need to fight.“Tonight we played against a very good team – one of the best in Europe today – and we gave a very solid performance that made me very proud.“I think it was important for us to reduce the gap. The top four is very close. It was the perfect thing for us to arrive to third place and be close. That is important for us.“But it is only one game and three points. We need to be consistent and our challenge is to keep this intensity for the next 18 games of the season.”   Ads by Revcontent Trending Articles Urologists: Men, Forget the Blue Pill!
