The company has partnered with Nanhi Kali, a not-for-profit organisation, to spread awareness about this critical issue of education for girls in India. As a result,...

(3BL Media/Justmeans) –  All 193 United Nations (UN) member states have signed a landmark agreement pledging to fight the threat of antimicrobial resistance – the fourth time a UN declaration has been reached on a health issue, following HIV in 2001, chronic illnesses in 2011 and Ebola in 2013. Experts warn that treatment-resistant infections pose one of the biggest known threats to humanity and without urgent action, it is possible that simple infections could soon become entirely untreatable with existing drugs and that routine medical procedures, such as Caesarean sections, could become too dangerous to...

(3BL Media/Justmeans) –  Earlier this year, the Indian government approved a $1.3bn insurance scheme for its farmers, protecting them against crop failures as a way to help put a stop to a spate of suicides. Two hard and devastating successive years of drought have battered the country’s already struggling rural heartland, with farmer suicides in rural areas regularly making news. Since 1995, more than 300,000 farmers have killed themselves. Now, thankfully, more help is on its way through eKutir Global, a pioneer in creating sustainable, tech-driven, social Impact solutions for India’s smallholder farmers. eKutir is the country’s first brand to be certified as a B Corp, using...

(3BL Media/Justmeans) –  Diabetes is top of the news agenda this month. Public Health England is warning that tackling diabetes will be ‘fundamental’ to the future of NHS, as the number of adults with the condition grows. About 3.8 million adults in England now have diabetes, with at least 940,000 of those undiagnosed, new figures reveal. About 90 per cent of the cases are Type 2 diabetes, which is linked to being overweight and obese, and is therefore largely preventable. The other 10 per cent are Type 1, which usually develops in...

(3BL Media/Justmeans) –  The global economic recovery is uneven and social, and political destabilization risks remain high in many parts of the world. To help strengthen the recovery, people and markets urgently need to see greater transparency across all organisations to help restore trust in the institutions that help underpin the world’s financial markets. This is why the Global Reporting Initiative and the Swiss State Secretariat for Economic Affairs (SECO) have announced the start of the second phase of its...

(3BL Media/Justmeans) –  Reshma Bano Qureshi is a 19-year-old woman from Mumbai who survived an acid attack two years ago. Since then, she has teamed up with the organization Make Love Not Scars to create ‘the red lipstick video tutorial,’ which does not teach how to apply makeup, but instead raises awareness about the dangers of acid violence. By disguising her disfigurement as a beauty vlog, Qureshi sent a powerful message that has been widely seen and shared on the Internet. Now, a year later, Qureshi is on to bigger things, and is on the runway for New York Fashion...

(3BL Media/Justmeans) –  Teaching children to have compassion, to care and be able to pay it forward in kindness, is just as important as teaching them mathematics and English, as these life skills will help them forge a kinder, more supportive culture. Especially as there has been a worrying rise in recent bullying statistics, showing that it is on the up among young adults, teens and children, most probably due to a cyber bullying. Working to be part of a solution to this growing trend, generationOn, the...

(3BL Media/Justmeans) – Almost 60 million people were in forced displacement in 2015, the highest number since 1945. Now, a report from the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO), Global Education Monitoring, points out that refugee children are five times more likely to be out of school than non-refugees, and that among refugees, only 50 percent of children are in primary school and only 25 percent of adolescents are in secondary school. The civil war in Syria has contributed to the...

(3BL Media/Justmeans) – Our world population will reach 9.9 billion in 2050, which is 33 percent more than an estimated 7.4 billion, according to the projections in the 2016 World Population Data Sheet from the Population Reference Bureau (PRB). Despite declines in fertility rates around the world, the population is expected to remain strong enough to take us towards a global population of 10 billion. There will be significant regional differences. For example, very low birth rates in Europe will mean population declines, while Africa’s population is...
