Описание: Diversification of economies especially in territorial geographic lagging regions in developing countries has been an issue of concern to policy makers and planners in the recent past. This is in response to the accumulating poverty levels, over dependence on one sector of the economy and increased population needs. Although still of central importance, farming on its own is increasingly unable to provide a sufficient means of survival in rural areas. The Author in this book highlights the lifestyle of people in developing counties as their surviving skills. It stresses out some vital strategies that can be applied to improve the livelihood of people at the time when poverty levels have become rampart.

The Temple is about the influence of Graeco-Roman culture on modern civilization. It depicts the culture of the elites, the power they wielded, and the way they treated the underclass. The elites were mainly the kings, emperors, bishops, and the priests. Their quest for power and worldly things strayed them from God's path. For example, the emperors were deified though they broke divine laws. In their zeal to appease God, the priests adopted foreign cultures contrary to divine worship and incorporated them into Christian doctrine. In a nutshell, the behavior of the elites affected the society. It is against this background that The Temple is set. Wosila, an African immigrant, returns home one wintry evening with Lewis Harris, a homeless boy. Her husband, Joe, is upset. He and his wife have come to the United Stated to realize the American dream. But the idea of harboring a homeless boy worries him. He orders Lewis to leave because he does not want to be at odds with the law. Wosila had found the boy in the subway, hungry and shivering with cold, and had brought him home to give him a place to sleep. She pleads with her husband to let the boy stay, saying, "In Africa, a stranger is always welcome home." Joe is moved to pity and finally gives in, allowing Lewis to stay. But a few weeks later, Rev. Ambrose, who runs a shelter for boys, claims the boy, arguing that as aliens, the law does not allow the couple to adopt children. Lewis has endeared himself to Wosila, calling her "Mother." Lewis begins to cry but in vain. Can he get the same maternal affection from the reverend?

Описание: Girls’ participation in Mathematics (Math) has been dwindling steadily over the years in Ghana despite government effort to improve this historical Math discourse. This study therefore provides an insight into the wide range of complex network of Social and Institutional factors that have contributed to the lower proportions of girls pursuing Math and Math-related programmes at the SHSs and beyond in Ghana. These factors often times are institutionalized and reflected in the society. This implicitly or explicitly create the impression that females are incompetent learners of Math. This becomes a matter-of-fact knowledge stereotyping girls and interpellating them to avoid Math through the process of socialization. The majority of girls feel trapped in this praxis to the extent that they eventually develop negative attitudes towards Math. In a logical presentation and using the lenses of social constructivist and feminist related theoretical perspectives, the findings from the field have been extensively discussed to give a better insight to the reader. This book will serve as a relevant text to academia, gender activists, as well as parents and the general public.
Описание: Corporate Governance refers to the manner in which the power of a corporation is exercised in the stewardship of the corporation’s total portfolio of assets and resources with the objective of maintaining and increasing shareholder value and satisfaction of other stockholders in the context of its corporate mission. It is concerned with creating a balance between economic and social goals and individual and communal goals while encouraging efficient use of resources, accountability in the use of power and stewardship and as far as possible to align the interests of individuals, corporations and society. This study sought to assess compliance to best practice corporate governance requirements and highlights the key indicators of best practice that need to be addressed in the privately owned foreign mining establishments on the Copperbelt. The major lessons picked from the literature were the effects on the organisations and the society at large of failure to implement best practice requirements of corporate governance. Firstly, we note that if there is no transparency and accountability in decision making, an organisation may fail. Refer to report for the key findings.

Описание: Introduction to Research Methods and Proposal Writing-1 is designed in response to numerous calls from students in universities and colleges, beginner research scientists, consultants and research assistants to grasp basic concepts, methods and techniques in social science research procedures. The book introduces readers to the evolution of social science research and gives a general overview of what social science research is and what it is not. Forms and types of social science research, research proposal design, methods and data collection techniques are discussed in details to enable students and beginner researchers explore innovative and goal oriented ways of writing excellent research reports, thesis and dissertations. Introduction to Research Methods and Proposal Writing-volume 1, however, does not discuss basic statistics and presentation of graphical data aspects of social science research methods. These are treated separately in ‘Introduction to Research Methods and Proposal Writing-volume 2’ by the same author. Readers are advised to get both volumes in order to maximise their research methods and report writing acumen.
Описание: This book theorizes that the unique characteristics of disadvantaged communities such as high concentration of low income dwellers, squatter communities and poor infrastructure developments, set them apart from the urban centers in which they exist. This book therefore seeks to answer the question, how do you ensure adequate water supply to disadvantaged urban communities in Ghana. Using the case study methodology, focus group discussion and household surveys, this book explores the unique characteristics of disadvantaged urban communities and how such characteristics can be channeled into finding the right mix of policy interventions to ensure adequate water supply.
