There are several disadvantages of Africa education. Many countries in Africa are in the civil war or have oppositions to do some threating things, so their government needs to pay all of their attention on how to win the civil war and how to deal with the opposite faction, so they do not have any attention or economic ability to build up the education. And the second one is they do not have strong economic. Some countries in Africa are very poor, they even do not have any money to build the infrastructures. That is why they do not have only little free education for citizens.
All the government really needs to do is to court and cater to its foreign donors to stay in power. There are plenty of other ways for us to help countries in need. Money can be given to organizations that closely watch what happens with the money and if it is effective. This is the safest way to help, until Africa’s government is improved. A country does not come out of something through aid.
We enjoy helping people by nature, and financial assistance seems like a convenient, beneficial method of support. But are all of our efforts to “make a difference” really changing anything? Recent discussion of foreign aid has ignited the sparks of controversy.

(273) Africa needs the support and time from other countries to function properly to be able to meet countries same demands for technology. Other countries should be helping out third world countries, like Africa. There are so many people in Africa suffering from various diseases and malnutrition everyday.
On the other hand, African governments should take complete advantage of aid in a way that the goods and services serve to the development of the specific country. As a result, the less amount of aid is assigned to a state, the closer they are to succeed by their own means. However, it is important to recognize that depending on the places and they way it has been done, aid has chances to be effective. For example, Unicef truely “rebuilds countries, such as Sierra Leone, following civil war” SOURCES UNICEF has established many programs only based on the freewill of helping. Many of them actually are non-profitable constructed which really shows that there is still some empathy around us.
Studies show that there is a difference between universal principles and local norms. Environmental protection and human rights fall into the global social responsibility. By contrast local responsibility is based on needs and circumstances happening locally. Local needs can be the same as global needs such as fighting AIDS or unemployment in South Africa. However, multinational that are not affiliated with South Africa have little incentive to contribute toward South African AIDS and cannot actively affect the unemployment which are local social responsibilities but might fund a global AIDS awareness campaign which is a global social responsibility.
Because of poverty people of Africa remain hungry as they don’t have enough money to buy their food and their basic needs. Some of the African countries have less poverty rate than others due to good government and economic system in those countries. Most of the African is facing challenges to survive and keep their family healthy. Education is another factor which is the main cause of this poverty and many more other problems. Lack of education in Africa is due to lack of schools and education facilities.
If you give people money, sure you may help them for a bit, but if you present to them new ways to make wealth for themselves, they will be better off in the end. And although Africa does have some weaknesses, it is also bursting with potential. So the challenge that Africa struggles with should not be a challenge of reducing the amount of impoverished; it should be a challenge of creating skills and frameworks for people to pull themselves out of poverty. If you say that Africans are poor and they need to reduce the amount of poverty, you get international donors with money for the poor, medicine for the sick, and food for the hungry. However, that is counterproductive, because you are treating the symptoms and not the problems.
Additionally, more sharing of expertise, data and images, including training in GIS amongst African countries will reduce the bargaining power of image producers and the cost of images will be more affordable in the long run. Most of GIS initiatives in Africa are funded by donors and set up as Projects that have a schedule and deadline. During the financial crisis of 2007/08, some of African countries could not access funding for existing and new development projects due to the fact that the donor nations had a “credit crunch” in the home countries. It imperative African countries contribute financially, technically and have the political will in ensuring
