            GAUTENG, JOHANNESBURG (SOUTH AFRICA) 17 February 2017 ---   Created to educate orphans and vulnerable children, Africa House College is committed to primarily contribute to the generation of balanced sustainable economy growth and its population and to promote prosperity for all citizens in South Africa.   It is a mission it accomplishes by educating South African children from the ages of 4 through 18.   Under the leadership of Mr. Lethukuthula Nkomo, Chair of the South Africa International Men’s Day “Teach Us Peace” Children’s Literacy Initiative, children enrolled at Africa House College will participate in the initiative.  Africa House College is the first educational institution to participate in the International Men’s Day “Teach Us Peace” Initiative which is a global initiative created under the International Men’s Day Banner.       


           “Students at the Africa House School will be the first group of children in our global village to participate in the South Africa International Men’s Day ‘Teach Us Peace’ Children's Literacy Initiative.  South Africa is the first nation in our global village to participate in this global initiative which gives children – the Next Generation of Leaders, Husbands, Fathers, Wives, and Mothers -- a voice through the written word – essays and poems -- and at the same time provides children with an opportunity to hone their literacy skills.  When I look at the children of South Africa,  the children who attend the Africa House School, and children in other nations, I find myself asking, ‘What do these souls think about?  What do they care about?  What type of world do they want to live in when they mature into adults?,”  Mr. Nkomo remarked who is also a Contributing Editor to IN SEARCH OF FATHERHOOD®, a quarterly Fatherhood and Men’s Issues Journal which is published in the United States and distributed online in Canada, the Caribbean, Africa, Australia, and Europe.   


          Approximately 2.2 million of the 7.5 billion souls who occupy Planet Earth are children.  The key challenges of violence – physical and psychological, poverty, hunger, lack of access to adequate physical and mental health resources and support services, Fatherlessness, ethnic and religious intolerance, mass incarceration, an unlevel educational playing field, and illiteracy have a traumatizing impact upon these souls as they make their journey from childhood to adulthood.   Through the International Men’s Day “Teach Us Peace” Children’s Literacy Initiative, the Adults of the World will not only learn how these key challenges are negatively impacting these 2.2 million souls, but will also learn  from these 2.2 million souls – our children – how these key challenges should be addressed.   The International Men’s Day “Teach Peace” Children’s Literacy Initiative gives our global village’s 2.2 million souls who are children a forum of their own to share their vision for the world through essays and poems which will be published in the CHILDREN’S CORNER segment of IN SEARCH OF FATHERHOOD®, a quarterly international Fatherhood and Men’s Issues Journal and on the CHILDREN’S CORNER blog at http://buildingabridgetothefuture. blogspot.com.

DRAWING A STRAIGHT LINE TO RECIDIVISM, SUSTAINABILITY, AND RENEWED PROSPERITY IN PHILADELPHIA

Heralded by many as the “Next Great American City”, the fifth largest metropolitan area in the United States, the City of Philadelphia is on the move.  Real estate developers are transforming an area between Market and Chestnut Streets spanning from 11th to 12th Streets once considered the epicenter of Philadelphia into East Market, a towering and expansive structure which will be home to residential units, restaurants, retail outlets, and office space. Looking westward, a cluster of gleaming glass and steel skyscrapers which rise above the end of the Walnut Street Bridge and which appear to obfuscate the line of demarcation between the City of Philadelphia’s downtown business district, University City, and the neighborhoods surrounding Drexel University and the University of Pennsylvania come into view .. These developments are helping to create excitement about Philadelphia. Despite the perceived “renewed prosperity” of Philadelphia’s downtown business district an…

SEEING INVISIBLE MEN AND BOYS: JEROME TEELUCKSINGH, Ph.D.

On 19 November 2015, a panel discussion was held at the Student Activity Center at The University of the West Indies, in Trinidad and Tobago (in the Caribbean). It was spearheaded by an undergraduate female student, Ms. Michelle Roopnarine, and featured Dr. John Gedeon of the University's Office of Planning and Development; Ramia Coleman, the Chairman of the all-male Hall of Residence on campus; and Jonathan St. Louis-Nahous, the Guild of Students' Representative for Part-time and Evening Students. The panel successfully generated some interest and lively discussion among a cross-section of students on campus and across faculties. During the past five years, similar small scale observances have been held on campus. Despite this recognition many students and members of the public are still unaware of the existence of International Men’s Day.
From 1999, International Men’s Day was tailored and revamped to continue building the global Men’s Movement and promote an ideology that…
