What ever preconception you have about money, you must be aware that the winds of circumstance blow on all of us in an unending flow that touches each of our lives. Many young people around the world constantly experience the blowing winds of scarcity, shortage and insufficiency. We are blown daily by the same winds of circumstance and buffeted by the same turbulent storms of discontent about the rich getting richer and the poor getting poorer. We have failed to realize that wh...

The introduction of youths into political and decision-making spaces is a fairly new thing. Malaysia has made headway with this with current projects such as Parlimen Belia and similar state-led initiatives. Similarly on the rise are activities where our voices get a chance to be heard, such as MUN and youth conferences. Activity among the youth community is not unprecedented or a novel concept, neither is collective activity channelled towards a specific cause. But like their adul...

Do the youths really know about money? We all know the definition of money as a medium of exchange or a legal tender for buying and selling. We all want to make a lot of money, youths are known with having many ideas bubbling within them, but it seems implementation is impossible because of lack of funds. For lack and insufficiency to be reduced and perhaps eradicated especially among the youths, there is an urgent need to understand some things we can do with money. These...

A symbol that once kept Africa united and saw people come together to fight a common era. Ubuntu! We came from all corners of the diaspora and fought a common era - slavery. Colour was not a definitive picture for there was no black, coloured , Indian, Hutu, Nsenga, Bemba, Tswana, Yoruba, Xhosa, Ngoni and all nativity but we were one Africa bound together in love...

BLUE: The young soul sat on the beach; just some meters away from the crystal clear sea water. He could easily feel the warmth of the sand grains and admired the unique beauty the sun which was tucking itself elegantly into the majestic ocean. An elderly person, who stood beside him and perhaps his grandfather, asked him: “What are you looking at my dear?” “I’m not looking; I’m enjoying this beautiful world” he replied softly. “Tell me about it!” asked the e...


Hola amigos! :) First, I apologise for my 2 weeks of absence. I’m slowly getting back on track and feeling better! I’ll be honest - it was going to be my first retreat ever and the thing is, I was going there all alone and I hesitated to make it as I feared not being able to mingle and click with the youngsters there, finally find myself alone, home-sick and uncomfortable despite the promise of intense sharing. Clinging to that promise was my first step towards upcoming m...
