By Kamanda (19), Plan Global Youth Advisory Panel (GYAP) member. Just 12 years ago my country started revitalising its education system after the civil war had destroyed almost everything. Today, the deadly Ebola virus is destroying our education systems once again. Schools have closed down indefinitely and lessons or classes are banned. Our tutors are paid but they give no lessons, some of them no longer study or research their own subjects. Candidates of external exams...

We can no longer turn a blind eye to a viral disease breaking out in distant West Africa; we can no longer ignore extremists terrorising the populations in the Middle East. We are long past the time where small communities lived in contentment with their local produce and found solace in the security of their confined collectives. We are no longer self sufficient, and as we find ourselves in the midst of globalisation the borders that divide us fade away. Our thoughts, actions and...

We travelled to the Ahangaran Valley in the Bamyan province of central Afghanistan to work with local children as they produced videos about their school, their lives and their dreams for the future. Bamyan made headlines back in 2001 when the Taliban destroyed the ancient Bamyan Buddha statues that had been etched into mountainsides. For more than 1,500 years, pilgrims from across Asia had set up camp near the Buddha statues and the huge caves beneath them. Now, only the c...

The Internet can be a wonderful resource for children. They can use it to research school reports, communicate with teachers and other kids, and play interactive games. Children who are old enough to punch in a few letters on the keyboard can literally access the world - but that access can also pose hazards. When it comes to protecting children’s rights online, businesses must collaborate with other actors including governments, parents and policy makers, to take the necessary...

In order to live a happy and healthy life, one needs to have a positive mind no matter how tough life may be, one should believe in themselves. Whatever you are doing and you are not successful or happy, you don’t have a sound mind full of confidence. An HIV free generation is a dream shared by all Zambians, because if you are not infected, then you are affected. The millennium development goal (MDGs) have therefore given most Zambians hope for a bright future, but despite aimi...

Taking a walk down the streets of Yaounde, the capital city of Cameroon, I overheard two young people conversing. They were comparing their standards and level of education. One of them talked about how he has gone to a professional university and will soon be enrolling to do his masters program. His friend heaved, sighed, and said he wished his dream of becoming an agricultural engineer could be a reality but his parents cannot afford for the cost of training him to a professi...
