cancerCancer grows out of normal cells in the body. Normal cells multiply when the body needs them, and die when the body doesn't need them. Cancer appears to occur when the growth of cells in the body is out of control and cells divide too quickly. It can also occur when cells forget how to die. Cells are the building blocks of living things.

There are many different kinds of cancers. Cancer can develop in almost any organ or tissue, such as the lung, colon, breast, skin, bones, or nerve tissue.

Our Ref: EBS/Flash/01/2012 



One of the main objectives of the Education Board of the Africa Federation has been to support and promote strong cooperation between all institutions providing education in our community in Africa. AFED EB strongly believes that cooperation between schools and especially counselors will provide platform for informed decision making, sharing of best practices, and enhance economic value via collective procurement for common resources.

To achieve this goal, the Education Board is looking forward to the formation of network between AFED EB and the school counselors to work collectively bringing about the sharing of resources, exchange of ideas and exchange of human resource.

The Education Board has communicated the above plan officially with the school boards of Dar es Salaam, Nairobi, Mombasa and Arusha, as well as introduced the EB career counselor, in order to establish effective communication links between the counselors and open the pathway to the formation of this network.
