Economic Community of West African States

banner ECOWAS

Economic Community of West African States ( ECOWAS) is a regional organization of 15 west African nations formed in 1975. There were 16 nations in the group until recently when Mauritania withdrew membership from ECOWAS. The main objective of forming ECOWAS was to achieve economic integration and shared development so as to form a unified economic zone in West Africa. Later on, the scope was increased to include socio- political interactions and mutual development in related spheres.


Transfrontier Park

The area surrounding the Okavango-, Kwando- and Zambezi Rivers, has been described as the "Eden of Africa" as long ago as in the beginning of the previous century. Since then very little and very much has changed. Much has changed in this sense that the areas has been carved up into 5 different countries and has experienced the scourges of war. Little has changed in this sense that hardly any development has taken place and the border is often just a line drawn on a map - still peoples and wildlife co-exist in harmony and trek across borders at will.

Flag Egypt

Philip Emeagwali

Philip Emeagwali
In Africa, Emeagwali is synonymous with computer and Internet and his name has become immortalized in popular African ballads. In a televised speech, as president, Bill Clinton extolled him as "one of the great minds of the Information Age" and used the phrase "another Emeagwali" to describe children with the potential to become computer geniuses. Born on August 23, 1954 in what was then colonial Nigeria, Emeagwali's father was a nurse's aide and his 16-year-old mother was a housekeeper. With the aura of a renaissance man, Philip Emeagwali talks about technology, politics, black history and the future. He sees a future in which people will be digitized, half-human and half-machine. Emeagwali is described as an inspiration to African youths who wonder what life can hold for them when the odds are stacked against them. A measure of his influence is that, each week, 10,000 students use his website to complete their school homework. The United Nations inducted him into its Gallery of Prominent Refugees in recognition of his successful journey from a refugee camp to the highest intellectual podium.

Flag Ethiopia

Situated in the horn of Africa, Ethiopia covers a land twice the size of France, Kenya or Texas & four and half times the size of Great Britain and Italy. It is the oldest independent state in Africa with 3000 years of history. The word "Ethiopia" derived from the Greek and means "Land of people with sun burnt faces". Some believe that Ethiopia is the land of genesis.

Ethnic rivalries

Ethnic rivalries in the mountains of East Africa have claimed the lives of millions of Africans in the last several years. The Hutu people controlled the tiny nation of Rwanda, despite the fact that the ethnic Tutsi outnumbered them. The Hutu are generally shorter than the Tutsi, have darker skin and tend to be farmers, while the Tutsi are are pastoralists, who tend to animals. In 1990, Tutsi living in Uganda invaded Hutu controlled Rwanda, but the two sides signed a peace agreement in 1993 calling for a coalition government. The following year, an aircraft carrying the presidents of Rwanda and neighboring Burundi was shot down. Deep-seated ethnic hatred erupted and the Hutus slaughtered an estimated 800,000 Tutsis as retribution. Many experts in the region now believe a Hutu extremist shot down the plane. The Tutsi rebels responded with a fourteen week civil war that defeated the Hutu government and forced almost two million Hutu to flee to neighboring Zaire (now Congo). Ethnic tensions in the region continue, but most Hutu and Tutsis had returned to their homes by 1997.

Cultural understanding is the key to cultural acceptance and social integration while freedom of expression would be meaningless without cultural expression. Freedom of cultural expression is an inalienable human right and we are convinced that we cannot learn from our rich, diverse ethnic cultural differences if these are regarded as taboo and denied public exposure. The (EAC) is founded on the basis of the above-mentioned philosophy.
Eusebio Ferreira Da Silva
(Born: 1942)

Eusebio Ferreira Da Silva

Eusebio Ferreira Da Silva, born 25 January 1942, Lourenco-Marques (now Maputo), Mozambique, the leader of a group of African footballers to come into prominence in the 1960's, made an enormous impact on Portuguese football. Eusebio was born in the then Portugeuse territory of Mozambique. He began his football career with the Sporting Lourenco-Marques, a nursery club of Sporting Lisbon. Benfica, Sporting's great rival, snapped up the young Eusebio upon his arrival into Portugal. Eusebio was the top scorer at the 1966 World Cup (9 goals) held in England. Here his lightning fast acceleration and wonderful dribbling skills earned him acclaim. His trademark was a spectacular shot, which allied to his powerful running and dribbling skills, made him one of the most dangerous strickers of his era.
