Using fashion to make Equality Reality

As a lot of my readers may know I gained a strong interest in Gender Equality throughout my University degree. In turn, this led to my final year Dissertation being titled ‘Son Preference with reference to Adolescent Marriage in Pakistan’. I am, therefore,  always on the look out for active ways to provide and enhance young girls…

Trashy Bags, Social Enterprise-Ghana

So as some of my readers may know from a previous blog post I was lucky enough to go on a field trip to Ghana at University. The trip was based at the University of Accra where we worked alongside the Regional Institute of Population Studies and undertook data collection, analysis and then presented our findings to our home…

Happy International Day of the Girl

So this morning I woke up and checked my phone to find that Facebook were advertising ‘International Day of the Girl’ with the option to add a frame to your profile picture to show your support.

So following my recent post about the huge importance of reducing food waste I read an article in the Huffington Post about the UK supermarket TESCO starting to act upon this. Tesco has decided to now give their leftover food to charity due to the CEO Dave Lewis admitting he feels ‘uncomfortable‘ with the levels…

Food=Money

The other day I came across this short video and I thought it was so powerful in its message. For as long as I can remember I have been quite conscious regarding food waste particularly since a trip to Uganda with a charity called World Challenge. This trip gave me an insight into the inequalities…

Was Accra how I expected?

Witnessing the creations of new builds dotted around the capital city, especially numerous malls, displayed the recent development of Ghana. What I found striking was the huge divide between the people working in and visiting the innovative builds to the surrounding poor locals begging and living in poor conditions. During the trip one night myself…

Are you a Global citizen?

The world is becoming increasingly interconnected with Globalisation forging networks between countries/nations that normally wouldn’t occur. The current World is now characterised by Transnationalism and Mobility where technological advances have made it easier to create links and travel across nations than it has previously been. However, these changes can have implications. Many could argue that this is interfering…
