SA, Namibia push corridor development

first_img Both countries also belong to the Southern African Customs Union (SACU). 8 November 2010 South African President Jacob Zuma and Namibian President Hifikepunye Pohamba agreed on a package of enhanced co-operation during Zuma’s latest visit to the country, while urging completion of the Trans-Kalahari Rail Initiative. Zuma, accompanied by a delegation of five ministers and two deputy ministers, concluded a successful working visit to Namibia on Friday. According to the Department of International Relations and Cooperation, Zuma and Pohamba agreed on a package of enhanced co-operation on issues including marine and coastal management, transport and communication, agriculture, energy, science and technology, trade, and regional integration. The two presidents also checked on progress made in the implementation of the Trans-Kalahari Rail Initiative, which forms part of the Trans-Kunene Corridor. Recognising the increase in cooperation in various sectors, Zuma and Pohamba also agreed the South Africa-Namibia Bi-National Commission should be held annually, focusing not only on economic issues, as is currently the case, but also on social and security issues. Speaking ahead of his visit last week, Zuma said the cooperation between Windhoek and Pretoria offered real prospects for mutual development and growth, while at the same time expanding economic opportunities and investment between the two countries. He said Namibia and South Africa should establish a symbiotic link between broader continental efforts, as well as those of the region, for infrastructure development. “In this regard, we should spare no efforts in increasing the momentum of integration between the South African Development Community (SADC), the Common Market of Eastern and Southern Africa (COMESA) and the East African Community (EAC)”, Zuma said. “This tripartite economic project holds real prospects for contributing to continental efforts aimed at increasing intra-Africa trade.” Namibia imports more than 80 percent of its goods from South Africa, while almost all Namibian exports end up in South Africa or go via it.center_img “The two presidents highlighted the importance of this project and expressed the view that its completion would contribute to the intra-regional trade through the movement of goods, services and people,” said department spokesman Saul Molobi.

You are not alone Suicide Awareness And Prevention

first_imgIn addition, KPBSD was awarded a three year Suicide Awareness, Prevention and Postvention (SAPP) grant from the Alaska Department of Education and Early Development. The three year grant proposal targets high risk populations of students in grades 7-12 at Homer Flex, Marathon School, and Kenai Alternative School. And, in year two and three of the grant, additional KPBSD middle and high schools. One of the organizations seeking to offer resources to those in need is within the Kenai Peninsula  Borough School District. The district launched the “You are not alone” suicide awareness and prevention program. More than one thousand students from Kenai Central High School, Kenai Middle School, Nikiski Middle-High School, Skyview Middle School, Soldotna Prep, and Soldotna High School attended assemblies about suicide awareness. Student leaders at KCHS received additional training about suicide awareness. Everyone received yellow wristbands with a Care line that anyone can call, anytime: 877-266-HELP. Another program offered by the district is Sources of Strength. “While suicide is sometimes a difficult topic to discuss, it is also paramount that we as a community address it head on,” said Sean Dusek, superintendent. “Programs such as Sources of Strength are critical components of our commitment and dedication to support our students through the myriad of issues they may experience throughout their lives.”center_img Mental health conditions are often seen as the cause of suicide, but suicide is rarely caused by any single factor. Many people who die by suicide are not known to have a diagnosed mental health condition at the time of death. Problems contributing to suicides include stresses over relationships, housing, money, health, employment, substance abuse, or legal woes. Facebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享As suicide rates continue to increase across the United States and on the Kenai Peninsula, multiple programs and organizations seek to raise awareness about the trend and offer resources to those who need it. Students learned that many people think that openly talking about suicide raises the risk. The fact is that asking someone directly usually lowers their anxiety, opens up lines of communication, and also lowers the risk of an impulsive act.last_img read more
