"The latest report reveals how Zimbabwe’s former higher and tertiary education, science and technology development minister Jonathan Moyo is reportedly “still wanted by Kenyan authorities for an alleged $6m fraud committed in the east African country in 2000”.
According to the state-owned Herald newspaper, Moyo had not been cleared of the fraud charges committed while he was programme director for an American-based charity, Ford Foundation.
Kenyan media said that the money was meant for a Nairobi based non-profit organisation, the Series on Alternative Research in East Africa Trust started by political scientist Mutahi Ngunyi. #zimbabwe#minister#fraud#moyo#mugabe#fordfoundation#nairobi#kenya#HOTFM

Was busy educating and training rural youths about digital tools for their village development. I am using my skills and knowledge to erase digital divide in rural areas. India is based on agricultural and forest land, empowering village and tribals will lead the real DEVELOPMENT of my country.
Parallely I am learning a lot about life and sustainability from these locals, they are potentially educated people who are content and happy with the limited resources. Community living and resource sharing are values in their lifestyle and living system which leads true happiness and sustainability.

Here in Jhabua I am working on Project "Digital Democracy" with Vikas Samvad to decrease the digital divide in rural and urban areas of central India. After this Malwa region, I will be traveling to Bundelkhand region next month.😉😉 To know more about the project or if you have any queries, feel free to comment or DM 🙂
On Friday, 15th December, a day I can't forget in a hurry which was ladened with so much anxiety provoking challenges from heavy traffic, missed flight, to no flight, and traumatic road trip... one thing came out positive from all of these. We had a private screening for the staff and the family members of @fordfoundation while I was away, but my team ...#bestteamever did the magic with support from our movie director who despite the fact that her car was bashed by an unruly road user, still made it . Is it my dear Benin sister who had to come with her nanny and baby just to show her support even when she had other engagement. To my darlyn mama, she let all that she planned for the day all for me. Thank you @graceedwinokon, @officialosas and @officialngozinwosu. Aren't I lucky? Team work makes the dream work. May joy never depart from all of YOU., Ameen. The reviews from the participants were mind blowing because this is a timeless movie with a strong message that is relatable in an entertaining way. The BEST part of this is that, Ford foundation wants to open our new year with a big GBAM by supporting our movie, little drops of happy, @littledropsofhappythemovie in a way you have never seen before.
Oh Lord, I remain thankful, grateful and feeling blessed for your undiluted and unlimited love.
Watch this space for all the details in the new year...#InGodWeTrust#MyGodIsAwesome .
P.S: In every situation/challenge, find your inner peace, focus on the positives for a healthier and happier YOU.

Remember last February’s mass student walkout in New York City protesting President Trump’s travel ban? It was planned by Palestinian-American Muslim Hebh Jamal (@hebzter101) who was in high school at the time. “I contacted a lot of different organizers from across the city—we were all really outraged,” says the Bronx native. “The walkout was an exemplary representation of unity, solidarity, and empathy.” Hebh’s activism is at the center of everything she does. She’s spoken before thousands at numerous rallies and events, including at high schools and the Ford Foundation, and she’s a key member of Integrate New York City, a student-led organization that tackles school segregation. Now a freshman at the City University of New York, where she studies economics and political science, Hebh also works full-time at New York Appleseed, a nonprofit that helps enforce policies against school segregation. The key to successful protesting? “If there’s an issue you’re passionate about, research it and really understand it,” she advises. “Then just yell until
someone hears you. And after people hear you, organize with them and have them yell with you.” 👏 #21Under21 Introducing #Volume5 of Teen Vogue . 📷: @petrafcollins

#OTD in 1955 the Ford Foundation announced a half-billion dollars in grants to thousands of private American colleges, universities, and hospitals. The stock in Ford Motor Company held by the Foundation as part of its endowment had done spectacularly well that year, and the Foundation's Board was determined to make that windfall count. It instructed the staff to give away $500 million ($4 billion in 2017 dollars), which the staff prepared in one weekend. They made sure to support institutions in every congressional district; grant recipients received word of their awards simultaneously via Western Union telegram. These photos show Ford Foundation staff hard at work in their Madison Avenue offices during the "$500 million weekend."
Hello @WomeninPoliticsNG Fam!
We are super excited about this documentary by #PLACNG and @fordfoundation titled #UnderRepresented .
We are also happy to let you know that we have been invited to the exclusive screening event and will be bringing you all the juicy scoop from the event.
Today is Human Rights Day! So we’re featuring an episode from apartheid South Africa documented in our collections. In 1979, the Rockefeller Brothers Fund and Ford Foundation supported a group of South African lawyers in founding the Legal Resources Centre in Johannesburg. The LRC provided legal representation for poor blacks, female domestic workers, and other vulnerable and marginalized people who had trouble finding a lawyer. It also gave black law students professional experience when they had few opportunities elsewhere. Over time, the LRC chipped away at the legal underpinnings of apartheid, using the rule of law as an instrument of justice. It became an important lever in dismantling the regime. Post-apartheid, one of its founders, Arthur Chaskalson, went on to become President of the Constitutional Court and later Chief Justice of South Africa. Today the LRC continues its human rights work with a staff of more than 60 and offices in four cities.
Today is World AIDS Day...an opportunity to show solidarity with the millions of people living with HIV worldwide, to unite in the fight against HIV, and to commemorate those who have died from an AIDS-related illness. The Rockefeller Archive Center supports these worldwide efforts and presents a playlist of HIV/AIDS educational videos produced between 1986-1999. These videos are from the records of the Ford Foundation, the Commonwealth Fund, and the Rockefeller Foundation. Follow (or copy and paste) this link to view these important films:
