In a similar way Namola is designed to make the reporting process much simpler and to get help speedily to those who maybe in danger. CGTN's Julie Scheier reports.

These men are preparing for their test at South Africa's Mines Rescue Services (MRS), an elite unit dedicated to saving lives in a country with the deepest mines in the world.

Fraudsters in Ghana show us how they use internet scams to steal thousands of dollars from unsuspecting victims all over the globe. -- While Nigeria's 401 scammers may have written the book on West African internet fraud, their shtick looks like Compuserve compared to what's going on in Ghana. Unsatisfied with the meager winnings from emailing thousands of random Westerners in hopes of convincing one poor sap they're the treasurer of the Ivory Coast, Ghana's scammers decided to stack the odds in their favor the old-fashioned way—witchcraft. Taking a page from cyberpunk, traditional West African Juju priests adapted their services to the needs of the information age and started leading down-on-their-luck internet scammers through strange and costly rituals designed to increase their powers...

The creation of the African Union began with a wave of optimism about Africa's future. In 1963 a group of independent African nations created the Organisation of African Unity - which later became the African Union. Its promise was to bring Africans together and propel the continent towards peaceful coexistence and growth. The orgnaisation now says peace and security have become more worrying than ever. And it's working to address the issue. But the focus of this year's meeting are Africa's young people and their future. But conflicts in South Sudan, the Democratic Republic of Congo and Central African Republic are dominating the agenda. Millions continue to flee from violence and natural disasters across the continent. Poverty, the outbreak of disease and food shortages are all bi...
The urge of technological giants to connect everyone and everything literally has no limits. Google wants to use balloons to form a shield around the planet and Facebook is experimenting with drones and a free Facebook app for mobile phones. At the moment, Africa is the continent with the most internet-free zones on the map: places without internet or mobile phone signal. There, however, developments have accelerated. More than 80 percent of all African households have mobile phones and in some of the 54 countries on the continent half of that number are smartphones. VPRO Backlight observes how Africa gets connected and follows a number of people who deal with this passionately. The African continent is a laboratory for all possible solutions. High-tech as well as low-tech pioneers com...

With the increasingly closer China-Africa cooperation, poverty reduction and development in both China sand Africa has entered a new era. It is with this in mind that delegates from Africa and China gathered together in Mauritius to chart a new path in the common war against poverty. As participants share experiences and explored new ways and models of tackling poverty, and with China ready to help, Africa must come up with its own strategy. The key question is: In which areas do China and Africa need to deepen cooperation to wage a successful war against poverty on both sides? And how can Africa stay in the driving seat, charting it's own path?
