Help Jane Goodall by Drinking Tanzanian Coffee - from "Whole Story" the offical Whole Foods Market blog

If you’re a coffee drinker, why not do some good in the process of getting your morning cup? With every purchase of Allegro Coffee Company’s Kanyovu light roast coffee, shoppers support efforts to reforest the area around Tanzania’s Gombe Stream National Park, a preserve in the region where the coffee is grown, ultimately sustaining the area for local farmers and restoring habitat for endangered chimpanzees.




With Allegro’s support, coffee growers in the Kanyovu region can utilize traditional and sustainable growing, harvesting and processing practices that help keep the land healthy and fruitful. Check out Jane Goodall’s personal message of thanks to Allegro and Whole Foods Market shoppers for helping her in protecting the endangered chimpanzees.

Mtanzania aswekwa korokoroni Marekani kwa kuua mwanae

Ibrahim Kibayasi, Mtanzania anayeishi mjini Illinois katika jimbo la Chicago nchini Marekani, anakabiliwa na kesi ya mauaji ya mwanae mchanga wa umri wa miezi mitano yaliyotokea nyumbani kwao alipokuwa akimlea  wakati mkewe akiwa kazini.
The alleged abuse happened on Sept. 3 at the Mount Prospect home Ibrahim Kibayasi shared with his wife and Dylan. Ibrahim, a stay-at-home dad, was taking care of Dylan while his mother was at work when the baby developed diarrhea, which caused multiple diaper changes, court records indicated.

Ibrahim Kibayasi gave a videotaped statement to police, indicating he violently shook the baby even though he knew he should not. He told police he grabbed the boy by the midsection and lightly squeezed him out of anger a few weeks prior and did not tell the boy's mother, court records said.

He has no criminal history but is considered a flight risk because he was in the United States on a student visa which expired seven years ago. He is originally from Tanzania, court records indicate.
Bond was set at $2 million Monday at a hearing at the Rolling Meadows courthouse, the release said.

Video: Child prostitution! (Kenya)

This is pathetic. Absolutely wrong in either way you look at it. A child can not be subjected to these kinds of torture and suffering. It's one thing to think about it but hearing them lamenting and wondering why this was done to them, it kills your heart especially if you care and you have a human heart. It is really sickening and demonic. I fully condemn it and anybody who thinks this is just ok, you are sick too, can you imagine if this was done to you when you were a child?... horrid! (sorry to all of you who went through this, hopefully justice will be done someday).
Kenya's stunning beaches attract thousands of tourists each year but this tropical paradise hides a harrowing secret. Children as young as 6 are having to risk their lives and sell sex in order to survive.
As night falls, Mombasas clubs fill up with European male tourists ogling teenage girls. The desperate teenagers wear high heels and pay a bribe to get in. The ultimate hope is Mzungu, a white man who will pay 5 times more for sex, than a Kenyan labourer can earn in a day. Three years ago a study by UNICEF reported that approximately 30% of the population of children aged between 12 and 18 were engaged in some form of sex work. Since this report, political violence and economic crisis has left 10 million Kenyans starving, forcing more youngsters into the sex trade. I started when I was 12. I could go into a nightclub and I could count 10 to 20 girls that were prostitutes, tells 14-year-old prostitute Leyla. I ask God, what I have done wrong? I am still a child and I am doing this. Dr. Essam Ahmed works in Mombassas only sexual health clinic and explains there are many loopholes in the judicial system, it's very rare for a perpetrator to be jailed. And although the authorities say they are going to take strict action on those who are taking advantage of young children, the country fears any attack on its reputation could drive innocent tourists away.
