Africa as Tragedy Africa is left out of the world economy, and so… 5 million children die every year in Africa, that’s one child dying every six seconds. Many of these deaths could have been prevented with available cheap technologies (e.g. oral rehydration therapy to prevent death due to diarrheal diseases, measles vaccination) Today, 50 percent of Africa’s population (380 million) live on less than $1.25 a day, this proportion is about the same as it was in 1981 (by comparison, the U.S. poverty line is $28.50 a day, 12 percent of US below this line) The average consumption of this group was $0.73 a day

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
