Talking about “About Charity” in our debate http://voicesofyouth.org/en/connect/our-debates/about-charity I have something that I really want to share with you. A few days ago I went to a convenience store to have a lunch and when I enjoyed my meals, there was a boy standing right in front of me begging for money. Instead of giving him some money, I asked him to take a seat and having lunch with me. He had refused because he wanted to take his lunch at home, so that he could...

Cigarettes probably do since a lot of people use it to be socially accepted. Hence, no one seems to...

Data shows that while South Africa lags behind a number of African countries, there are many with worse education systems." Read more: http://bit.ly/17N4QGW...

I called this, a little research with a great conclusion; “You don’t need to love museums, you just need to go there” I’m living in Jakarta, the capital city of Indonesia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jakarta) . The perfect delineation of big city with many people, rush and central of entertaiment. That’s why people prefer to spend their holiday or weekend in a big mall or other entertainment places. But actually, Jakarta also has so many incredible museums with the bea...

By ‘Biodun Awosusi United Nations Education, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) designated September 8th as International Literacy Day in 1946.
