Reflections on International Migrants Day

The definition of ‘freedom’ is ‘the power or right to act, speak or think as one wants’; in other words, freedom of choice, freedom of speech, or freedom of movement. Relatively speaking, most of us in the UK are fortunate to have access to freedom, and more often than not, take it for granted. It […]

World Children’s Day

‘Every person’s potential fulfilled.’ Today, we celebrate World Children’s Day. This day has deep significance as it marks when the UN General Assembly adopted the Declaration of the Rights of the Child (1959) and the Convention on the Rights of the Child (1989).

‘Angela, join in and work alongside your aunt! One finger can’t kill lice!’ I can still remember my grandmother, Gogo Lisnet telling me in my mother tongue.  I had been watching my aunt Ines (she wasn’t that much older than me) struggle to winnow maize for the mill.  My grandmother seemed to have an adage […]

Love lifts us up where we belong

In the first of a series of blogs on All We Can’s values, Chief Executive Graeme Hodge talks about love songs and life-changing work. If given the category of love songs and power ballads, most of us on a Zoom quiz would probably do fairly well at naming at least a few songs and their lyrics. […]

More than just a virus: tackling coronavirus in Zimbabwe

Handwashing, social distancing and regular updates have become a part of our everyday lives here in the UK. At the time of writing, Zimbabwe has 885 confirmed cases and 9 deaths from coronavirus.

Dealing with development setbacks

If you’d asked me as I sipped hot chocolate with my family at Christmas, how I would be spending the majority of 2020, living in lockdown during a global pandemic would’ve been the last thing on my mind. As some parts of the world begin trying to recover from the feeling of having the rug […]
