When we take action together, we are powerful.
On April 23rd, Tent of Testimonies (TOT) Agreed to Accelerate Universal Healthcare Coverage (UHC).
From a list of nominees, RaHa selects for UHC. Selectees get medical covers that RaHa pays premiums for –– the covers are provided by various companies, including Insurance For All (IFA). RaHa also builds rainwater harvesting systems and toilets and gives reusable sanitary towels to villages and schools in rural and peri urban areas that get nominated for the same.
TOT’s Pst. Dr. Fred Akama and RaHa’s Titi Kadu signed an MOU where TOT vets and nominates its members UHC. TOT want their nominees to get AfyaPoa, a Micro Insurance Product initiated and sold by IFA, designed for the less fortunate in the community. IFA’s C.E.O, Mr. John Paul Otieno, was present during the signing.
Using their Testimony Tv for publicity, TOT will then start vetting and nominating members of other churches –– these are members that are excluded from quality health care coverage.
On April 6th, activists on the Greenpeace ship Rainbow Warrior took the first-ever action at sea against companies preparing to mine the Pacific Ocean’s seabed. The ship in the background is owned by DeepGreen — a Canadian mining company that’s spearheading the drive to mine the biodiverse, barely understood deep sea ecosystem.
And for the first time ever, major companies like BMW, Volvo, Google, and Samsung have pledged to exclude ocean-mined minerals from their supply chains until the associated risks are better understood.
The pledge serves as a direct counter to mining companies’ claims that kick-starting this whole new ocean-destroying industry would help meet demand for minerals.
Greenpeace is celebrating this news with … friends at the WWF, who prepared the pledge in question. At the start of … campaign against deep-sea mining last year, Greenpeace called on Google to swear off ocean-mined minerals for good.
We know more about the surface of Mars than the deep ocean, and both governments and corporations have a role to play in preventing a literal race to the bottom!
Last month in Paris, Greenpeace France activists entered the Charles De Gaulle airport to paint a plane green and deploy banners to shine a light on greenwashing in the aviation industry.
To protest the French government’s most recent weak climate bill, Greenpeace activists did what lobbyists wish they could do — ‘greenwash’ air transport.
Over the past several months, the French government has been pushing the narrative that carbon compensation and hypothetical “green planes” could be the solution to minimizing aviation’s role in the climate crisis. The proposed law also aims to limit airport expansions, but contains so many loopholes that it allows all current expansion plans to continue. This despite a recent public consultation that found substantial public support for air traffic reduction to curb emissions.
Around the world, Greenpeace is demanding that governments step up their climate ambitions and build back fossil free. That will mean reducing short-haul flights, cancelling new airport extensions, and developing sustainable transportation alternatives. Onwards!
One Less Excuse Decision-makers can use to Stall Transition to a Green Economy
A few weeks ago, the Supreme Court ruled 6-3 that the use of federal power to impose a carbon tax across Canada is, in fact, constitutional. This is fantastic news for …[Canada, and the world]…, and it means [Canada’s] provincial governments can accelerate, but no longer impede, federal action to deal with the climate crisis.
Over the past three years, the carbon tax faced bitter opposition from provinces like Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Ontario. Now that Ottawa has the constitutional authority to decide on the issue, let’s make sure our governments put their energy into more constructive things — like putting a greater price on pollution and exploring other policy options to further address the climate emergency.
With one less barrier to passing strong, Canada-wide climate legislation, there’s one less excuse decision-makers can use to stall the transition to a green economy.

DuGut™ Holding LDA
The Global Tourism Initiative commits signatories to remove all unnecessary or problematic plastic packaging from their businesses by 2025.
The sole purpose of DuGut™ is to generate sustainable action and help solve our worlds’ problems. Large Charities are stockpiling funds to support the continuation of their own bureaucratic organizations. This means that a large percentage of YOUR donation is not being spent fixing the problem you choose to solve. Therefore, there is little trust in these Charities anymore.
These trust issues are the main reason that the younger generations are simply not donating money to charities. Traditional methods are simply no longer working anymore to solve our society’s problems.
Maybe you are one of these people who no longer donates, and maybe you are not. Regardless, we knew if we wanted as many people to take part in the solution as possible, we had to make the DuGut™ App easy, fun, and FREE for everyone, and above all we wanted to create instant gratification, with Real Sustainable Action. This means that if you engage with a Brand through our Brand Actions™ you know exactly why you are doing it and at the end of the quest, you have taken Real Action!
Changing your own actions is important, but together we can create waves and make Real Impact on a global scale. Take a look at the video below, if you have not done so yet, to understand how DuGut™ App will make this concept work in real life.
Every Brand wants to gain your loyalty. They spend enormous amounts of money to get your attention. Brands also know that today’s consumers want them to conduct their business in a more responsible way, and that we no longer respond to Green-Washing tactics. Today, sustainability is on every Brands Agenda!
The DuGut™ App appeals to that sustainability agenda and is purposely designed to use their engagement methodologies to support Real Sustainable Action, like planting a tree, funding carbon credits, removing plastic from the ocean, or helping a kid in need get food, water or education.We only work with organizations that take real action.
By engaging with Brands through our app, YOU are not the one paying for sustainable change. The DuGut™ App just gives you the ability to take Real Action. By lowering the threshold for everybody to take action we can increase how often it happens. When you have some spare time on the bus or train, in the coffee shop line or when you’re at home and bored, you can pick up your phone and make a Real Difference… Do good with DuGut™!
Ecocarrier™ Inc. in cooperation with Otung Limited (operating as RaHa Solutions) bring
TeleHealth and TeleMedicine technology/solutions to bear on the requirement for improving
healthcare provision in rural Africa.
Telemedicine refers specifically to remote clinical services, whereas Telehealth refers to remote
non-clinical services, such as provider training, administrative meetings, continuing medical
education and clinical services.
Traditional Telemedicine Use-Cases Include:
• Providing clinical support
• Overcoming geographical barriers
• Diagnosis and treatment of routine medical issues
• Follow-up patient care
• Real-time access to patient records
• Exam and procedure documentation
• Remote consultations and second opinions with experts during a crisis
Telemedicine is quickly becoming a viable solution to help doctors and medical professionals provide routine preventive care to patients living in rural areas with limited access to quality healthcare.
The prevailing low-cost and expansive availability of WiFi access to the Internet and the rapid
adoption of Smartphones and Tablets available at affordable prices and the advent of
Augmented Reality (AR) and Mixed Reality (MR) technology and their application in remote
interactions among people who are geographically apart have together changed the
TeleMedicine now includes the following AR & MR-enabled Use-Cases:
• Taking a patient’s temperature and vital signs
• Triage and emergency care workflows and Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs)
• Remote care
• Procedural training
• Patient monitoring + care
• Immersive learning – enabling medical students to work and interact with virtual
• Medical education consultations
• Updating and accessing patient records in real-time
• Video recording and live streaming medical procedures
One of the most widely touted benefits of telemedicine is remote consultation and collaboration. MRESENCE™ with HMD4XR takes telemedicine one step further by enabling realtime on- scene collaboration in critical or emergency response situations anywhere in the world.
Front-line healthcare and first response teams can live stream what they are seeing, receive live feedback, and begin to triage and diagnose patients while hands-free and focused.
Note: WtsWrng (What’s Wrong) is a technology as a service for the illiterate. It is for diagnostics without the use of language in text or speech and is not sensitive to gender or culture. We’ll license WtsWrng for use with TeleCare with MRESENCE™ and we shall propose it for use in the project with Amref.
Ecocarrier™ promotes social edification.

McDonald’s has completed the construction of a first-of-its-kind restaurant designed to serve as a learning hub for McDonald’s to test solutions for reducing energy and water use, a testament to the company’s ongoing commitment to sustainable innovation.
People are excluded from quality health care coverage and they are water starved. Schools are toilet-less. As a result girls drop out of school when they start menstruating. This is so unfair –– lack of water and toilets, medical services, and just being born a girl, are enough to lock families in poverty for generations.
We change this in villages and school that you care about –– see details
