RESPECT Intellectual Club

Please visit this link to watch a video about the RESPECT Intellectual Club (RIC) at the Buduburam Refugee Settlement in Ghana:

RESPECT is an international organization concerned with refugee education, raising awareness and encouraging action on refugee issues globally and locally, and making connections between non-refugee and refugee students. One of the organization’s associates, RESPECT Ghana, supports Liberian refugees both on and off the Buduburum refugee camp in Accra, Ghana.
Within the refugee camp showcased in this video, RESPECT Ghana fosters an environment of self-respect and dignity through their Smart Kids Program, an intellectual club, competitive sports teams and challenging extracurricular programs for grade and high school students. RESPECT Ghana focuses on integrating refugees into the wider Ghanaian society and changing traditional assumptions and patterns in the way refugee camps are run. In teaching respect for humanity, the environment and one’s self, RESPECT Ghana seeks to provide education, self-agency and support to reduce the harmful impacts that forced migration has upon young people.

RESPECT Ghana: The first step is to understand refugees are not a threat, but are themselves threatened, and they need help and protection. Refugees are ordinary people who could well be an asset to your community.
  • You, along with other members of the public, can encourage governments to adopt policies at home and abroad that help refugees find peace and safety.
  • You can also support RESPECT Ghana financially through donations and providing International Reply Coupons for Our Global Letter Exchange Programs in schools across the world.
  • Your ideas and information as well as proposals for projects or educational materials for refugees can be a useful resource for the Liberian refugee community we serve.
  • Individuals and organization willing to partner with RESPECT Ghana and help make its dreams and plans become a reality, should not hesitate to contact the Country Coordinator or the International coordinator.
  • (be sure to visit Respect's website for further details)

Ethics, Human Conduct and Values:
Slavery’s Pleasant Homes

Child is a sorrowful story that presents a clear picture of how racism, slavery, marriage, and classism as institutions were used by Frederic Dalcho to oppress and humiliate George, Rosa, Mars and Marion.

I also attempt to address current sexist, racist and classist practices that are demonstrated in the United States and how these practices promote and encourage oppression, male supremacy, violence, and the exploitation of the pow…

A Classical Theory Paper on The Movie "Brazil."

Source: URL:

The Criterion Edition of the 1985 movie known as ‘Brazil’ detailed significant classical theoretical concepts of Max Weber. The paper discussed how specific scenes and dialogues in the movie are related to Weber’s view of the world from a theoretical perspective.

Source: Weber (1864-1920) was a pessimistic classical theorist unlike Karl Marx (1818-1883) who was more optimistic about events occurring in society. He believes that society will gradually become difficult and there is nothing that we can do to fix it. His theory was based on two ultimate themes which are reflected in his entire theoretical thesis: firstly, “the emergence of capitalism as the dominant form of organization in the West and secondly, the relationship between ideas and actions” (McQuaid, summer 1 Lecture, 09). These two components of Weber’s theoretical works were reflective…
