Kaur. A modern day warrior princess. The reason why I hold this project so close to me- my Naniji. This photo reminds me so much of growing up. A Grandmothers love is so pure. She embodies so much strength and greatness, an extraordinary woman. This whole shoot was at her house. She inspired some elements within this project including styles. That fusion of old and new, representing traditions and values. The importance of culture, connects to our roots and to our peoples. Big up the team for their creative visions. UNITY.

“I guess what I’m saying is, let’s keep lifting each other up. It’s not lost on me that two of the biggest opportunities I’ve had to break into the next level were given to me by successful women in positions of power. If I’m ever in that position and you ask me, 'Who?' I’ll do my best to say, 'You' too. But in order to get there, you may have to break down the walls of whatever it is that’s holding you back first. Ignore the doubt — it’s not your friend — and just keep going, keep going, keep going.” Lauren Graham
We have so much more in common to build on than differences to set us apart. From my home in Dubai we wish you peace on the birth of the king of peace and love.. and prayers go to our brothers and sisters under the brutal regime in the occupied Palestine... a place for all religions. #jerusalem#palestine#jordan#diaspora#peace#christmastree#christmas
Meet the African American missionary who pioneered deaf education in West Africa.
At a time when many sub-Saharan African nations were still struggling to wrench themselves from colonial rule, the issue of special education was not a matter of priority. But it was during this period that African American missionary and educator Andrew Jackson Foster took the bold step to travel to West Africa to become the pioneer deaf missionary and educator.

[Тихое время с Богом]
В церковь хожу с самого детства,но осознанно начал ходить в классе 9,и вот тогда появились «сомнения» по поводу того: «нужно ли вообще ходить в церковь?», «на самом ли деле Бог существует?» и т.д.,множество вопросов вызывающих «сомнение».И вот в моей жизни происходит случай:-как то на отдыхе я оставляю портмоне в одном заведении и уезжаю,и спустя 2 часа,когда мне нужно было расплатиться,я понимаю что я потерял портмоне.Позвонив в то заведение,нам сказали что вряд ли можно его найти,так как там большая проходимость.Сумма была для меня на тот момент достаточная,мы решили с пастором все таки поехать туда,по дороге пастор говорит мне:помолись Богу,если мы найдем его это будет чудо,но ты не расстраивайся если не найдем,т.е. заведомо никто не верил что найдем!И в тот момент я не знаю почему,по сути это не такой случай,который касается « жизни или смерти», но я обратился к Богу со словами :Если ты есть Бог,покажи чудо,пусть мой портмоне найдется!И тогда мои сомнения отпадут!Слава Богу!Бог показал это чудо,совершенно невероятным образом нашелся этот портмоне! Да,возможно для многих это покажется случайностью,и многие подумают,вот если бы тебя спас от смертельной болезни или что-то в этом роде-это было бы чудо!Но часто,желая увидеть Большое чудо от Бога мы не замечаем,подобного рода Маленькие чудеса,которые мы воспринимаем за случайность.В том завете с Богом,я попросил покажи мне ,что ты есть и Бог мне показал!
Our co-founder @sweetpea_ri says... Winner of the 2017 PEN Hessell-Tiltman Prize and the Longman History Today Trustees' Award, this book should be on a shelf in every black persons home across the British isles. As our belonging anywhere other than Africa always seems to be up for debate, this groundbreaking and frankly massive book thoroughly explores the centuries long entanglement between the British Isles and African-descended peoples. Drawing on new genetic and genealogical research, original records, expert testimony and contemporary interviews, David Olusoga's text was published in late 2016 to accompany the landmark BBC Two series of the same name. Certain people will insist that being British is reserved for white people - let this book help you clap back.

Happy when clients are happy, not just with the conduct of our team, but the value we add. The work pharmacists do, especially at the last mile in providing solutions to help treatment success, providing guidance with medicines, showing the care needed to understand complex dosing regimen, giving assurances where and when possible and generally letting family members know they are in safe hands...we can't undervalue it. .
Our client in Lagos ordered 3-months supply of medicines for her dad in another city. Due to the different items and other reasons, we both concluded he needed a special session with an expert. Pronto, we contacted our my-medicines.com network member in Ibadan. And of course, the connection was made. .
We delight in the connectivity that is possible in healthcare when colleagues work together. The said pharmacist has brought a medical doctor into the picture. Papa is in safe hands!! .
That's how #collaboration adds value. .
Need medicines? We got you covered.
TopAfric Media took it up upon herself to carry out one of it’s social responsibility as an African Media Network in the Diaspora to support humanity. We wish to say a big thank you to the few in the Diaspora for supporting a good course. This Initiative was started to help solicit clothes for men,women, young adults, children and babies, shoes, school bags to support victims of the mudslide disaster that occurred in Sierra Leone in the latter part of this year. The items were picked up directly by the Sierra Leonian Embassy in Berlin yesterday, Monday, 11th day of December and will be shipped to Sierra Leone.
For in giving, we shall receive.
Thank you all
"I think about young girls out there who are probably struggling with a lot and need just a bit to encourage them to push on and keep at it. A lot of women struggle with issues on love, lifestyle related issues, family, loneliness etc.
Whenever I feel lazy I remember that maybe someone is watching me and this is what’s keeping them motivated. That’s a privilege to be in a position like this. I put myself out there, not afraid of the risks or the negativity, I believe if my mission is true, people will see it."

Before my first experience, I always wanted to do it & never did
1.The lack of will😒Homeless outreach happened in every city I lived. Often.
2.The fear of approaching a perfect stranger whose sitting straight on the ground with a light coat on at -2° to say to him/her holding your breath "Hello! How are you today?" Yes, it was a Challenge. Yes, in your head😑 the picture looks stupid. Yes, you judge 👀but you ain't here for that & reasons of them current position is none of your business🙅. Yes, I did laugh a lot😂. Yes, I felt safe. Yes, you'll experience rejection but you humble yourself/ apologize & carry on. Yes, people will tell you "you're giving here but what are you doing for your brothers and sisters back home?"🤔. No, nobody has been cus. No, you don't go home feeling like 😇Mere Theresa. No, I didn't always hold my breath to subdued the smell but I did hold my tears tho. Then I went home & I cried. A lot. Cried in a wayyY 😩😥😭😴 that I fall asleep crying but issokay, it's Life 🙏
