Human dignity, decent life and human rights are effects of
extensive humanitarian struggles by a people to achieve
reasonable life for all. The possibility of such El Dorado
was stalled in the past by unforeseen circumstances and
other man-made tribulations in global history. However,
these struggles will remain incomplete without a global
perspective. Thus, taking the responsibility to understand
humanity and her shortfalls in other parts of the globe
becomes necessary. This quest consequently triggers the
thorough study on how, where and why their plight is
intrinsically tied to their social, cultural, religious and
political background. Such genuine consequent studies can
uproot the causal effect and thus guarantee the success of
that developmental slogan of ‚helping people to help
themselves.‘ This study attempts to provide a platform that
could chart a path towards sustainable answers to basic
social questions.

Oyarekwa Emmanuel Ayebome is a priest of the
