Let's know GONG
Gong, today announces its presence as an "Information hub". Where we can all contribute our ideas and raise our voices to eradicating avoidable conflicts, dangers, and enlighten our selves for a better society.
We (GONG) sight an issue that needs to be addressed, we research the issues as to give accurate reports and facts before writing an article on the topic. GONG also welcomes articles from readers, which are reviewed before it is published.
In light to helping small and medium enterprises, GONG also runs a free post on fridays called "InFocus", where an entrepreneur or creative mind is interviewed to help in the publicity of such talents.
GONG plans to be the reference point to most if not every positive change around the globe. Positive changes like good roads in africa, eradicating hunger, good water, and so on.
