Does Sending Money to Family Members in Africa, Create A Culture of Dependency?

first_imgOne of the mediums diaspora send money to family members in Africa. BY Edmund Zar-Zar Bargblor‘Remittance’ is perceived as “funding that is sent or transferred to another party usually abroad. Remittances can be sent to another country via a wire transfer, mail, draft, or check. Remittances can be used for any type of payment such as an invoice, but it’s typically used to pay family members back in a person’s home country.”Very often remittances create a culture of dependency, where family members who receive remittances are not really interested in working. Their basic needs are covered and they do not need to look for work. This is a phenomenon that is extremely painful for most Africans in the diaspora.Another phenomenon that has been observed in some places is that remittances increase local market prices and exchange rates in the country receiving the remittances. This is a huge disadvantage for locals that do not benefit from remittances.In Liberia, and perhaps other African countries, remittances are spent mostly on consumption rather than investment, on ceremonies and luxuries rather than essentials.  Fostering agricultural activities are often ignored. Liberia, with her rich farming soil, most often the soil is not fully utilized. It is even sad, family members from the diaspora go through negative experiences whenever they visit Liberia.Most often upon their arrival into Monrovia, they will be responsible to buy food items, such as rice, pepper, greens, palm oil, water, etc. How can a “stranger” provide food for the “host relatives”?  This is against the practices of our forefathers.In the interior counties, the situation is even worst. The interior areas in Liberia have rich soil for agricultural purposes. However, due to some unknown reasons, our people are not pursuing this endeavor. Every weekday there are lines upon lines of people at Western Unions or Money Gram centers, waiting for handouts from relatives in the diaspora.Those of us in the diaspora need to encourage our people to go into farming or engaging vocational skills, instead of sitting around doing nothing. This is not in the best interest of our individual economic progress. The Liberian Government, irrespective of who is the president, doesn’t have the resources to employ every citizen.Government, nevertheless, has the responsibility to provide the basic services for its population – meaning, setting up vocational training centers, the building of farms to market roads, connecting towns and villages through assessable road networks, etc. To improve agricultural activities, villages and towns in the interiors of Liberia need to be connected. Perhaps the superintendents in the various counties need to foster and enhance agricultural activities.The World Bank’s report of 2012, relevant to global remittances, pointed out that Liberians in the Diaspora out-beat per GDP other Africans living abroad by “remitting $378 million in 2012, an increase of $18 million from 2011 remittance of $360 million, a more than 31% of global remittances and third of Liberia’s GDP in 2012” (The New dispensation, 6 February 2013).The ‘USD Explorer’ also, provided its statistical information relevant to the remittances received by Liberia during the period of 2011 through 2015. Liberia accordingly, received $360 million in 2011, $516 million in 2012, $383 million in 2013, $495 million in 2014, and $693 million in 2015 as remittances from other countries.These statistics demonstrate and show that Liberia, as a nation, has benefited economically from its nationals in the diaspora.Some Strategies put in place by the United NationsIn 2015, the United Nations issued a call to action to eradicate global poverty, reduce economic inequality and place the world on a more sustainable pathway: the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.This comprehensive undertaking affirms the need to reach 17 specific Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and proposes several ways to mobilize the additional resources required to realize this ambitious – but achievable – agenda; of these, SDG 10 specifically refers to safe migration.The United Nations have outlined some of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and proposes several ways to mobilize the additional resources.SDG 1“Remittances represent up to 60 per cent of recipients’ families on average and typically more than double a family’s disposable income and help deal with uncertainty, allowing them to build assets.”SDG 2“In rural communities, half of remittances are spent on agriculture-related expenses.Additional income increases receiving households’ demand for food, which increases domestic food production and improves nutrition, particularly among children and the elderly.Investment of migrants’ income in agricultural activities creates employment opportunities.”SDG 3“Remittances invested in health care – access to medicine, preventive care and health insurance products – improve the health and well-being of recipient families.Infants born into remittance families have a higher birthweight and are less likely to die during their first year.”SDG 4“One of the main reasons migrants send money home is to ensure access to better education for their children.Remittance-receiving households have demonstrably better educational participation than non-recipients, and invest about one tenth of their income educating their children.Remittances lead to almost doubling school enrolment. Children from remittance families, especially girls, register higher school attendance, enrolment rates and additional years in school.Remittances substantially reduce the probability of child labor participation.”SDG 5“Women migrant workers now comprise half of all remittance senders: 100 million in total.Remittances transform the economic role of women both on the sending side and receiving end through financial independence and better employment opportunities.While women remit approximately the same amount as men, women tend to send a higher proportion of their income regularly and consistently, even though they generally earn less than men.”SDG 6“To create social capital and pool funds to address local needs, migrants and/or their families often organize themselves into neighborhood organizations in their communities or through Hometown Associations (HTAs) abroad.”SDG 7“Remittances have a positive impact on family assets and overall quality of life when invested in housing, and they are more likely to be used for home improvements than for home purchases.Affordable solutions for poor households and their communities are already available, including efficient cooking devices and clean energy solutions.Local community projects may apply clean energy technologies, particularly relevant in remote rural areas lacking access to electricity.”SDG 8“As remittance families increase their purchase capacity and change their consumption patterns, they can do so by meeting individual needs and aspirations within the ecological limits of the planet.”SDG 9“Migration is increasingly becoming a consequence of climate change. Remittances and diaspora investment play a crucial role in mitigating its negative impacts and helping cope with income shortages due to weather-related shocks.Remittances enable the adoption of more sustainable crops and non-farm activities.SDG 9“Money held by remittance-receiving families and migrants’ savings in host countries improve financial resources available to the general economy. This capital can be maximized when coupled with financialSDG 10“Reducing the cost of remittance transfers can substantially increase disposable income for remittance-receiving families.By reducing average costs to 3 per cent globally, remittance families would save an additional US$20 billion annually.(https://www.un.org/en/events/family-remittances-day/un-action.shtml).ConclusionTo end on a positive note, one of the key and most important roles of remittances, in my view, is their significant and powerful contribution to fight positively against poverty. Remittances are essential to the economic development especially, when part of these funds contributes, to support the building of human capital while allowing to pay expenditure for education and training for the young people of family members. Therefore, in certain countries, remittances can contribute to the accumulation of human capital, and then to the growth of total factor productivity of the local economy (Chami and alii, 2008).Moreover, when these funds are deposited in financial institutions whether local or intentional in terms of savings, this will imply a significant increase and raise the financial resources of financial institutions. Hence, it will encourage institutions to expand their performance by granting more credits to companies in their markets for short or long term loans. Importantly, when the family members of diaspora African encountered difficulties of credit rationing, the remittances enable them to get out of these difficulties and can finance their needs for consumption or their capital expenditures.There is a need for Liberian writers to conduct research to help the public, have substantial literature and data indicating that remittances are often spent on essential consumption, investment in physical and human capital, and expenditures that improve welfare and productivity, including health, education, information and technology.Remittances thus far, according to research, create a culture of dependency in the receiving country, lowering labor force participation, promoting conspicuous consumption, and slowing economic growth.  The Liberian Government needs to set up program that will develop strategies on how to understand the impact of remittances and to be able to formulate specific policy measures that will enable the nation to get the greatest benefit from these monetary inflows. Remittances in themselves, should serve as a temporary accommodation and not a permanent solution to family members financial problems.Edmund Zar-Zar BargblorMr. Edmund Zar-Zar Bargblor is an Educator.

“Smallie”, Nero to know fate soon

first_imgMango Man murderAfter more than a week after a verdict was supposed to be handed down in the Kumar Singh “Mango Man” murder case, Mark Royden “Smallie” Williams and Sherwin Nero called “Catty” are set to know their fates later this week. During Monday’s proceedings, closing addresses by the prosecution and Defence Counsel Nigel Hughes were heard before a 12-member jury. However, presiding Judge, James Bovell-Drakes adjourned the matter to Thursday for summation of evidence. Thereafter, the jury will deliberate and determine whether or not the co-accused are innocent or guilty.Mark Royden “Smallie” Williams and Sherwin Nero called “Catty” will soon know their fatesThey were implicated in the murder of “Mango Man” whilst executing a robbery on August 30, 2007, at the man’s Cove and John, East Coast Demerara home. At the time, the man’s relatives were visiting from neighbouring Suriname. During the trial, the jury had been told that an ex-police rank transported the duo from Kumar Singh’s home via horse cart which the defence argued is implausible. Singh was killed after gunmen stormed his premises and allegedly made off with cash and jewellery.When “Smallie” had taken the stand, he implicated Inspector Suraj Singh and other ranks of torturing him. His account to the jury was that upon his 2008 arrest, he was handcuffed, beaten and shocked into signing the police caution statement which he claimed was not freely given. Prosecutors Tameika Clarke and Tiffini Lyken are leading the State’s case.last_img read more

Wenger hails ‘complete performance’ as Arsenal stun Man City

first_imgArsene Wenger hailed a “complete performance” by Arsenal as he saw his side brush past Manchester City at the Etihad.The visitors put the ghosts of 2014 behind them to deservedly beat the Premier League champions thanks to goals from man-of-the-match Santi Cazorla and striker Olivier Giroud.The Gunners were forced to lick their gaping wounds the last time these sides met in Manchester after being hammered 6-3 by Pellegrini’s men, but this win proved that the Londoners are a different beast this time around.And Wenger heaped praise on his side’s tactical nous as they outclassed their title-chasing counterparts.“We have shown good solidarity, good discipline and good fight when winning the ball back, so overall I think it was a very complete performance tactically and I think it was a deserved victory,” the Frenchmen said.“I felt there was good urgency from our defence and good defensive focus when they had some pressurised situations in the second half in our box.“And I am very pleased about that, because our defence has been questioned on a number of occasions, so to come out of the game with a clean sheet is important.”last_img read more

Reports – Key Chelsea figure departs club after spat with Jose Mourinho

first_imgChelsea and club medic Eva Carneiro have reportedly parted company – and the Premier League champions could face a costly legal battle over proceedings, according to the Daily Mail.Gibraltan-born Carneiro was initially relieved of some of her first-team duties by the Blues, along with colleague Jon Fearn, after a heated disagreement with Jose Mourinho during a Premier League clash with Swansea on the opening weekend of the season.Mourinho was angered by the medical team’s efforts to treat stricken Chelsea winger Eden Hazard, leaving the team with just nine players on the field following Thibaut Courtois’ sending off in the draw with the Swans.Carneiro was instructed to return to work last Friday at the club’s Cobham training ground, but it is understood she refused to show up for her duties.According to club advisors, she was not there for Tuesday’s training either and it seems she has now vacated her role.Chelsea may argue that Carneiro’s failure to adhere to their demands could weaken her case for constructive dismissal, even though showing up would have seen her effectively accept the new terms of her employment after being publicly stripped of first team duties.The Blues are also aware that Carneiro is in discussions with employment lawyers with a view to her next move.talkSPORT contacted Chelsea’s press officer on Tuesday afternoon but they refused to comment on the matter.

first_imgFootballAodh Ruadh’s will face early division 3 pace-setters Buncrana this Saturday in the Park at 6.45pm. The team had an excellent win against Fanad Gaels the first day out and we’d like to see a big, vocal support up in the park to get behind Peter Gallagher’s men in their first game on home turf this season. The Reserve game will take place in Páirc Aoidh Ruaidh at 5.15pm. Congratulations to Ballyshannon exile PJ McGee who starred at half forward as Oisin’s CLG Manchester swept to victory over St Peter’s in the final of the Senior Pennine League at Old Bedians in Didsbury on Sunday. We taught you well Sham.Derby bragging rights went to Bundoran as their minors got the better of Aodh Ruadh on a scoreline of 2-15 to 1-10 in Gaelic Park last Wednesday. Next up for the minors is the visit of Saint Naul’s to Father Tierney Park on Wednesday. The under 14s had two games over the past week. The first was played last Saturday and saw the lads go down to a narrow two point defeat in Tir Chonaill Park, Four Masters winning on a scoreline of 5-9 to 5-7. Better news from the second though, with the Ernesiders recording a good 4-13 to 4-4 victory over Saint Naul’s in Mountcharles on Monday evening. The game in Donegal town saw the Ernesiders slow to start and the hosts were ahead by 4-4  to 2-4 at the break. However Aodh Ruadh steadily clawed their way through the deficit over the course of the second half, but time just ran out with Four Masters still two points to the good. Most of Aodh Ruadh’s best performances on Saturday were in the rearguard. Jake Foley was excellent in goals with Kyle Murray also outstanding at full back. There was good assistance Calum Craig Doherty and Mark McGlynn too. Up front Cian Barden was the best attacker on show for the visitors. On Monday evening the scoreline doesn’t quite tell the full story with Aodh Ruadh only really getting on top of Saint Naul’s in the closing moments of the game. The Mountcharles men lead at half-time on a scoreline of 1-5 to 3-3, but Ballyshannon really upped their game in the second half and outscored Naul’s 3-8 to 1-1 to secure the win.  Shane Brady and Eugene Doherty were among the goals while Cian Barden again shone in the attack. Meanwhile there was a tenacious display from Marty McGarrigle in defence. Aodh Ruadh now sit second in the table on four points, but with a game in hand on Naomh Conaill on six points. The under 14s are back in action this Friday when they entertain Four Masters in Father Tierney Park. Under 14 boys training continues on Wednesday at 4.15pm sharp.Under 12 training continues on Mondays and Fridays from 5.15pm to 6.30pm, in Páirc Aoidh Ruadh.Under 10, under 8 and under 6 training continues this Friday from 6.30pm to 7.30pm at Páirc Aoidh Ruadh. Running in parallel with the under 8 training will be our first skills test of the season, so it is important we get full attendance on Friday. We will also need some parents to mark at each station. It’s very simple and full instructions will be given, so don’t be afraid to put the hand up for this one.LadiesRealt Rua played their first challenge as a team at the park on Saturday against Glencar Manorhamilton. This was the first game played by the new team and although it ended in a loss it was a great workout. Realt Rua take on Grange in a challenge game on Tuesday 5th in Bundoran at 7pm. We will be meeting at park at 6.20pm for anyone needing lifts. The season gets off to a start this Sunday 10th away to Ardara and we wish Realt Rua all the best.Aodh Ruadh under 14s got their competitive season off the mark on Saturday afternoon when they entertained Four Masters at Father Tierney Park. The game ended in a draw after a match where the hosts dictated for a long spells and hit the woodwork on no less than five occasions. Aodh Ruadh were leading at half time and after an even second half there was some confusion over the final score, which the home support and management had down as a one point win, but the referee called as a draw game. Aodh Ruadh had a good performance from Áine Hill between the posts, saving a second half penalty and being secure under the high ball. Alicia Clyne did a great job holding the defence together with support Leah Travers and Orla Keon. The half back line of Síofra Hughes, Lucy McGlynn and Caitlin McGarrigle got through a mountain of work while Caoimhe Keon and Ella Clancy covered every corner of the pitch. Leah O’Brien, Roisín Daly and Sarah Jane Keon played a lot of good direct ball into the forward line. Up front Brídín Maguire was a potent scoring threat and brought in other players well too. Eimear O’Brien and Laoise Kelly showed well up front too. Substitutes Gráinne Maguire, Eilish Gallagher, Sorcha McGonigle, Alana Gallagher, Katie O’Brien, Chloe Connolly and Aideen Walsh all contributed well on their introduction. Under 14 training continues on Tuesdays and Thursdays at Páirc Aoidh Ruadh at 5.45pm.Under 12 training continues Thursday from 6pm to 7pm and again on Saturday from 10am to 11am.Indoor training for under 8s [2008s and 2009s] and under 10s [2006s and 2007s] continues this Wednesday from 7pm to 8pm at the Mercy Hall.

HurlingAodh Ruadh sank to a second successive loss in Ulster Táin league Division 2B. MacCumhaill’s were the victors in Ballybofey, 3-14 to 1-4 the scoreline. Their next assignment is another away trip, this time to take on Castleblayney next Sunday 10th April.Our minors were up against a strong and highly motivated Carndonagh squad in Father Tierney Park on Thursday last. The Carn lads started brightly and got the first couple of scores of the game. Our younger and lighter team were finding it very hard get into the game and it took nearly 20 minutes for them to get their opening score. Carndonagh were well on top at half time and led 0-4 to 0.2. Aodh Ruadh were rocked by a Carn goal early in the second half which saw them stretch their lead to seven points. This was the wake up call our lads needed. From there till the end of the game they batted ferociously for every ball and began believing in themselves. They were well on top for the remainder of the game and ran out worthy winners 0-13 to 1-5, this was a great game between two very committed teams. The lads deserve great credit for battling away in the game and never giving up and overcoming a five point deficit to turn the game around. Next up for the lads is a difficult trip to Ballybofey this Thursday to take on an unbeaten MacCumhaill’s team.The under 14s had no league game this week, on Sunday they played a challenge game against Drumcliff / Rosses Point in Páirc Aoidh Ruaidh. We were down a number of players due to other sporting commitments and holidays, but the 12 lads who played gave it their all. They were up against a much stronger team physically, but our lads put in a great first half performance and led at half-time by a point. The efforts of the first half took their toll on the lads in the second half, when the older and physically stronger Sligo team got on top. The lads never gave up and it was only a few late goals which gave the Sligo boys the win. As is often the case you learn more in defeat, and the lads will have learned a lot from this game which should stand to them later in the year. We play Four Masters in the league this week. On Saturday Donegal under 17s finished their Celtic Challenge Cup campaign with a great victory at home to Armagh. They were convincing winners 0-21 to 0-17. Our three lads on the team were Stephen Anderson, Conal Sweeny and Brian McHenry. All played their part in this significant win.We are holding our annual Cash for Clothes Collection for the month of April.
