We are living in a world where we ALL have the same rights, irrespective of our race, gender, or age. Even if traditionally, men have been the decision makers, in modern Namibia, women and children have equal rights, and should have equal opportunities. In the eyes of the law, we are all equal.
A lot has been said about HIV/AIDS, as Namibia is one of the five countries most affected by the pandemic in the entire world. A lot has also been said about tuberculosis, or TB, as according to reports from the Ministry of Health and Social Services, Namibia has the world’s second highest TB prevalence rate, as measured by reported cases. Namibia is also home to another extremely dangerous disease: malaria.
The environment is the space around us: the house in which we live, the school we attend, the community we evolve in. It consists of natural parts (trees, flowers, animals, water, the air around us) and manufactured goods (buildings, cars, phones, etc.). It plays a major role in our lives, since without an environment – without the Earth – we obviously wouldn’t exist at all.
