Sigmund Freud believed work gave people a secure place in a portion of reality, in the human community. And yet we know still that work can be the bane of our existence, and it can also be the basis for human accomplishment. Working is a central feature of most of people’s experience, something for which we prepare for years of schooling, or through apprenticeship.

MOZAMBIQUE is one of Africa’s fastest-growing economies, with billions of dollars worth of untapped natural resources. But the country remains one of the world’s poorest.

 

Last week, I attended an African Union organised meeting aimed at fomenting an AU-CSO Annual Consultation on the Africa-EU Joint Strategy in Maputo, Mozambique.

 

As we over flew from Johannesburg to Maputo, I realised that South Africa was very big as observed from the sky. Agriculturally developed because you could see organised farms and storage facilities which are not available here.
