In my country Nigeria, there is a post-university national service requirement. During my national service at North-Central Nigeria, I worked at a secondary school (high school) with almost no basic facilities. The school had only one typewriter and two shelves (supposed to be a library) with outdated brown paper books. Over a few months with my students, I came to understand the poor quality of teaching they had been exposed to, learnt to value their learning deeply, and resolved...

This video for the song 'Goddess' by up and coming US artist BANKS was inspired by UNICEF's work on promoting children's rights through sport and play and the Galz and Goals programme in Namibia which helps disadvantaged adolescent girls make healthy decisions on and off the playing field. Most of the girls who take part in Galz and Goals come from vulnerable families experiencing lots of social challenges. Indeed, many of the scenarios in the film are real challenges the re...

Language is the lifeblood of politics, political power struggles, and the legitimization of political policies and authorities occurs primarily through discourse and verbal representations. Political language, Barsamian (1992:7) points out that “The Language of Politics conveys both the linguistic meaning of what is said and the corpus, or a part of it, of the political beliefs underpinning any given statement. Largely unable, and hopefully unwilling, to coerce; political authori...

Wherever you are, whatever it takes, no matter the distance, I know that one day you will get there. Today, you may fall several times and the chances of rising again seems hallow but believe you me, all will be fine in the end because the strife will not be long. The fruits of perseverance are actually more enjoyable because of the challenges one would overcome. And of course once you have achieved that goal, you probably would say "Yes I did it!" Finally, never get tired of...

What impact do social networking sites like Facebook have on our lives? Some might say there are more advantages compared to disadvantages. However, as it changes our lives, it is more social and personal and does not add much impact on our development. Instead we should focus on platforms like Voices of Youth and Connect where real issues are discussed that affect each and every individual. Solutions can be arrived at and young people get to experience the real issues in the w...

Girls and young women today are pretty familiar with computers and the Internet, and it may seem like they don't need encouragement anymore. But, to keep girls interested in science and mathematics, as well as believing they have something to contribute to areas like technology, hardware and software development, scientific research, and many other areas of technology, is still an important task. So I'm updating the site as much as possible right now. It will still seem a bit behind the times in...

As an educator I have observed both advantages and disadvantages of the re-entry policy. However, there are more disadvantages than advantages. Well, the main advantage is the girl child getting back to class. Their performance will be affected, and the main disadvantage is that she may become pregnant at a very tender age followed by complications during delivery. Unfortunately she may even be infected with HIV & AIDS.........….. Whats the way to move forward for our chi...

Vulnerable children have been disadvantaged in many areas. The strategy that can be used to improve the performance of these children in schools are stated as follows: (1) Subjects where they are not doing well must be identified and helped by both parents, teachers, and the community. (2) Introduce nutrition programmes for these children so that they are provided with food in the areas where they are found. (3) Motivate them through bringing back followers. Vulnerable chil...

HIV can be contracted in many ways; some are born with it, some get it through accidents, yet some get it through defilement and rape. We all have people in our communities and schools that have HIV and we should always remember that they too are human and have the right to access that which we too have the right to. Let us look out for one another and care for one another, for the saying is true; if you are not infected then you are affected. Remember it could have been you!
