Pan Africa Children Advocacy Watch: Nurturing Better Leaders For Africa And The World

Bethesda, MD ― The mission of Pan Africa Children Advocacy Watch (PACAW), is to nurture and develop a new generation of African leaders via access to a different educational culture at the primary and secondary school levels. In providing the infrastructure and staff for quality education for pupils in poor underserved communities Pan Africa Children Advocacy Watch promotes change.

“We can help develop better leaders when early education focuses on turning the gaze of the children away from avarice, extortion, selfishness, the vain, and obsession with accumulation of material wealth.” Dr. Sylvanus A. Ayeni is president of the nonprofit organization. “This type of education culture at the basic and secondary school levels would prepare young people for leadership that champions the development of their nations from within, and embraces living for a higher purpose.

“We’d like to expand our programs to several states in Nigeria,” says Dr. Ayeni. “In particular we would like a presence in the delta area and the northeastern part of the country where education has been brutally decimated by stone age ideologues.” Later, they plan to establish similar programs in other countries in sub-Saharan Africa.

The Biennial PACAW Leadership Academy is the second component of PACAW’s program. The Academy is for community leaders, the teachers and interested young graduates from the country’s tertiary educational institutions. The lessons and the values learned are then passed on to the children.

The third aspect of PACAW initiatives is the Community Economic Empowerment Program, intended to lift up the community economically. The goal is to transfer the PACAW programs to the community, the local government and perhaps, the state government within about ten years. This is designed to break the cycle of dependency which is so deeply entrenched in many nations of Sub-Saharan Africa.

PACAW is governed by an all-volunteer board in the USA and Africa. Members of the Organizing Committees of the programs at the grassroots level in Africa are all volunteers as well. At least 95% of donations goes directly to the villages or communities in Africa to fulfill the PACAW mission.

Dr. Ayeni is a retired neurosurgeon and former associate professor of neurosurgery at Creighton University School of Medicine in Omaha, Nebraska. Born in Nigeria, he has studied and taught around the world. For more information, please visit: www.pacaw.org

Praise Chapel Houston Launches New Young Adults Ministry For Challenging Times

Houston, TX ― Building a platform for effective worship, study and ministry in our time is not only necessary but unprecedented; this is the impetus for the revitalized Young Adults Ministry at Praise Chapel.

“The complexity of everyday life becomes even more challenging for a believer, especially because our culture is increasingly one of nonbelievers,” says Pastor Nathan Hanohano. “What we believe in and how we come to that ‘belief system’ will ultimately shape the destiny of the 21st century Christian,” he continues. “God has big plans for this generation, to usher in the next Great Awakening of the 21st century.”

At Praise Chapel, we work hard to be a church of relationships rather than rules, building bridges and tearing down barricades. We celebrate all nationalities, ages and people at Praise Chapel. We have a vibrant and inspirational music ministry, and offer special programming for children, women, married couples, students, singles, seniors and men.

Praise Chapel is located in Webster, TX. We are conveniently located a few minutes from Houston, and near the cities of League City, Pasadena, Friendswood, Pearland, Clear Lake, Dickinson, Seabrook, La Porte, Texas City, Kemah, and Alvin.

Dr. Banschick Reached 5,000,000 People On Psychology Today

New York, NY ― Yes, you heard it right, the Intelligent Divorce! It’s not the nice divorce, the spiritual divorce, or even the nasty divorce. “Look, if you’re going to break up, do it wisely and allow everyone – especially children – to move on,” says Mark Banschick, MD ― a medical doctor trained at Georgetown and New York-Cornell Hospitals. He is the author of The Intelligent Divorce book series, the DrBShow.com podcast, and now offers courses online so anyone can get scientifically validated advice without coming to the office.

• For example, here is a video clip about divorce from a child’s point of view:

• And a clip with actors depicting how parents can make things worse: Phttps://youtu.be/Up7qiQ5BTJk

Consider the following:

• Should you stay or should you go?
• If you stay, how do you turn a relationship around?
• Or, if it’s time to go, how do you make it right for the kids?
• And then, there are always tips on dealing with an “Impossible Ex.”

Mark R. Banschick, M.D. is a child psychiatrist and a retired expert witness in custody disputes. Dr. Banschick’s been quoted in The New York Times, Politico.com, CNN.com, Greatist.com, and featured on The Early Show and The Huffington Post.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

13:24 – A Dark Thriller

Leesburg, FL – M. Dolon Hickmon’s 13:24 – A Dark Thriller is a unique survivor-driven public outreach, intended to deepen public awareness of crimes against children and of the lingering impacts of PTSD. Published with the financial backing of nearly one hundred child abuse survivors and their allies, the project has been enormously successful to date: honored with a starred review in Publishers Weekly’s Best Books annual special issue, the book is now shelved in libraries from Helena, Montana to Zürich, Switzerland. The Kindle edition of 13:24 – A Dark Thriller is a current Top 25 Best Seller in Amazon’s “Child Abuse” and “Vigilante Justice Thrillers” categories.

“I have written and published essays and research on child abuse and excessive corporal punishment since 2006,” Hickmon says. “I eventually realized that although studies were being done and papers being written, the latest advances in our understanding of early trauma were not reaching the public. My solution was to create a fast-paced crime thriller that would combine elements of my own experiences with true crime headlines and cutting-edge research into the neurobiological basis of PTSD. With the help of a successful Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign, I assembled an amazing team of publishing veterans with hundreds of fiction best sellers between them.”

The result is a heart-pounding, ripped-from-the-headlines crime thriller that sensitively guides readers through the spiritual, physical, and emotional consequences of child abuse and the lifelong process of overcoming it.

Publishers Weekly raved: “Hickmon unleashes a shocking blitzkrieg of murder, conspiracy, and child abuse in this disturbing, breathlessly plotted murder mystery […] Eschewing easy answers for moral complexity, this thriller is unsettling entertainment that offers catharsis.”

The accuracy of the book’s complex portrayals have been attested to by child abuse survivors and trauma experts alike: “Mr. Hickmon writes with the clarity, power and passion of someone who really knows what he is writing about, and who understands the wide range of responses human beings experience when trying to deal with lives affected by ongoing trauma,” declared Bristol University trauma researcher and emeritus professor Dr. Kim Etherington, in her pre-publication review; “There are textbooks that explain the scientific mechanisms that underpin post traumatic stress disorder, but this book tells a story that reaches out to help us all understand.”

The book’s back cover effectively distills the plot: “Detective William Hursel has worked countless murder cases; staring down the cruelest deeds humanity has to offer. But nothing prepares him for what he’ll uncover while pursuing 14-year-old Christopher Pesner, a suspect in the brutal rage-killing of his own mother. While news reports focus on Chris’s odd obsession with the violent, blasphemous heavy metal band, Rehoboam, Hursel suspects a deeper motive — a hunch that is confirmed when Chris’s second victim is discovered. Racing to piece together the identity of Chris’s next target, Hursel unearths the shocking link between an embattled politician, a controversial celebrity evangelist, and a shadowy underworld where human traffickers ply the wealthy with unseemly indulgences.”

Author M. Dolon Hickmon is a writer, activist, and a survivor of religious child maltreatment. His writings can be found on news websites like AlterNet, OnFaith, and Salon, and his opinion pieces have appeared in newspapers such as the Scotsman, the South Lake Press, and the Bainbridge (GA) Post-Searchlight. Hickmon has been interviewed by local and nationally syndicated radio talk show hosts, including Washington DC based Sex, Politics and Religion with Jamila Bey, Live from Seattle with Doug Bursch, and the Los Angeles-based Jesse Lee Peterson show.

Hickmon’s original research continues to be cited by many and was included in a 2010 civil rights presentation to a committee of the US Congress. His hobbies include reading, songwriting, and playing acoustic and electric guitar. He lives with his wife and their daughter.

Discover How Kids Can Make A Better World In Guion The Lion

Englewood, CO – Bright colors, engaging characters and an inspirational theme combine for an instant classic in Guion the Lion: A Colorful World (Inspire On Purpose), by Rebecca Wilson Macsovits.

Guion (rhymes with “lion”) is a rainbow-colored lion who stands out in a world of black and white. He wants to find a way to bring back the color, but how? While on his quest, Guion encounters a variety of animals, each struggling with a unique problem. Always kind and friendly, he does his best to help.

To his delight, Guion eventually discovers that every time he helps someone, a little much-needed color comes back into the world.

Rebecca Wilson Macsovits approaches life with a sense of adventure and continually seeks out new people, information, and challenges to keep her invigorated. Although the majority of her career has been spent in marketing, her true creative spirit launched after the birth of her first child and continues to be cultivated by all three of her children, ages eight and under. To help balance her career and creativity, Rebecca runs marathons and also boxes.

Rebecca’s oldest son, Guion, who has Down syndrome, inspired her first children’s book. He brings a tremendous amount of joy to his family, and Rebecca regularly witnesses his siblings asking him for help because they know he is able to give it. She doesn’t want others to discount his abilities just because he’s different. Rebecca hopes her first book, Guion the Lion, will encourage young people to give and receive help from others who don’t look exactly like them – this is what makes our big world such a welcoming and colorful place.
