(3BL Media/Justmeans) – Last week, UK news reported that the charity Freedom4Girls had discovered school girls in West Yorkshire had no alternative but to stuff toilet paper down their pants to stop themselves from bleeding through their clothes at school. They couldn’t afford sanitary products and some were skipping school as a result. Freedom4Girls is a UK-based organisation that is focused on work in Kenya on this issue. However, since learning about these girls, the Charity has had sent some sample packs to the school and launched a crowdfunding campaign...

(3BL Media/Justmeans) – In the last six years a number of sinkholes have appeared, all around the planet—this is not an isolated phenomenon. They are linked to other earth changes, such as earthquakes, volcano eruptions, strange sounds and extreme weather events. Sinkholes can be natural or man-made; natural ones occur due to erosion or underground water, and start developing a long time before they actually appear.

The ground beneath our feet is not as solid a structure as we like to think. It is made up of layers of soil, rocks and minerals, with water continually seeping in between...

(3BL Media/Justmeans) – Numerous studies indicate that a growing number of children in Europe are feeling disconnected to nature. A new study in The British Journal of Sports Medicine says that children are living a sedentary lifestyle and are not physically active enough from the time they start school. It’s recommended that children should get at least an hour of exercise a day, yet the 400 children enrolled in this study did less than this as they got older.

The researchers tracked the activity levels of the children over eight years using...

(3BL Media/Justmeans) – International Women’s Day on 8 March has come and gone, but the work still goes on for gender equality. It is widely acknowledged that when women achieve their full potential at work, women and communities are not the only ones that benefit, as gender equality is also good for business. Therefore, the important role that business plays in the lives of women means that the private sector is uniquely positioned to strengthen women’s economic empowerment and should use its influence to help create change. There is no better place to start than in sub-Saharan...

(3BL Media/Justmeans) – Vaccines are a modern miracle, protecting children from serious illness like polio and smallpox. They help avoid complications from vaccine-preventable diseases such as mumps, whooping cough and measles, which can result in the amputation of an arm or leg, the paralysis of limbs, hearing loss, convulsions, brain damage, and death. However, these vaccine-preventable diseases are still a threat. Nearly one in five infants – mostly in developing countries – miss the basic inoculations they need to stay healthy. This is partly due to the widespread challenges along the supply chain, as vaccines need to be kept between 2°C and 8°C to be...

(3BL Media/Justmeans) – Occasionally, to bring innovation and new initiatives to market companies need partnerships, that can offer scalability, productivity and innovation. In 2013, Barclays and GSK formed a new collaboration combining the skills and expertise of a bank and a healthcare company to help increase access to healthcare and improve economic livelihoods in Africa. This joint venture was one of the first between two large corporates from quite different and heavily regulated sectors, who together focused on driving shared value. One of the principles...

(3BL Media/Justmeans) – Surprisingly, only 12% of employees in America have paid maternity leave, unlike all other developed countries. There is no federal requirement where workers receive any payment during the time they take off for the birth of their child. While there is a federal law offering paid maternity leave, the vast majority of women in the States do not enjoy access to paid job protection after the birth of a new baby. Thankfully, over the past couple years, there has been a tremendous movement from private employers to fill the gap and provide payment to employees during their parental leave.

These companies are motivated by attracting...

(3BL Media/Justmeans) – Cancer is a major public health problem in Sub-Saharan Africa where sadly, the majority of children who are fighting cancer die. The mortality rate here is estimated to be as high as 90 percent. This is because of an inadequate healthcare infrastructure, along with a significant lack of expert physicians and other necessary healthcare workers trained to treat children with cancer. One of the most predominant misperceptions about cancer is that it is not really an African problem. Yet, non-communicable diseases—cancer, in particular—...

(3BL Media/Justmeans) – There are so many trends in the news that it is difficult for businesses to keep track of everything and know what is relevant. Yet it is critical for business and its leaders to be able to recognise the underlying trends driving change, to evaluate their significance and stay ahead of—rather than follow—them.

Helping to give a perspective is Sodexo, a world leader in quality of life services, which has released its...
