Youth are the hope of every country, they represent a major power. If we could use this power for the good of the country, I assure you that the future will be such a great one. But if we try to create obstacles and to prohibit those youth from building their country, I can say we won’t get anything, we will be like someone who is playing with the fire! I guess if the leaders of a country don't try to encourage youth, these leaders must expect a disaster in the future. They w...

Yesterday a really interesting event took place at the UNICEF offices in New York. A group of youth delegates from Brazil and Mexico shared their personal stories and views on what the barriers are to education in their countries. The issues that they raised included: 1.Schools where teachers don't speak indigenous languages; 2. Poor quality of text books; 3. Violence and discrimination - especially for LGBT and indigenous youth; 4. Schools that are located far from w...

SO THERE’S CLIMATE CHANGE, WHAT NEXT? When I ask people questions regarding climate change I receive many answers; but most of them go along these lines: "it is God who made the Earth he obviously has a plan," or "the earth is probably just changing to prepare us for evolution". Whatever the case Earth is our home and it is our responsibility to maintain it. When dealing with a problem we often need to first identify the problem; in this case the problem is climate change. Climate...

THE VOICE OF SOCIAL MEDIA# In today’s world people can communicate over great distances. You can even chat with someone who is on the other side of the globe as though you were in the same room. All this is possible because of social media. Social media is an essential tool in the work that we do as advocates for change and if anything voices of youth is a social networking site. Not long ago I had the privilege of attending the Zambia Children’s Climate Conference 7 and o...

The sight of schoolchildren filing into classrooms across Gaza last week was a welcome sign that in one respect at least, life in the territory is returning to some kind of normality after a traumatic summer of conflict and bloodshed. Pupils at the privately-run American International School in Gaza were back in class a week before the new academic year even began. Staff said they wanted to find a way of helping the children get back into a routine as soon as possible, so that...

In a previous article, I wrote about AIDS, including three movies about AIDS, homosexuality and homophobia. One of them was ''The Normal Heart'', the autobiographical play by Larry Kramer which became a movie. When I wrote about it I mentioned my big love for it since it really inspired me. So please let me share a few more thoughts with you about this movie. In the photo you can see Mr.Ryan Murphy who many of you know from other works like "Glee" and "American Horror Story". H...

For me Muhammad Ali is right, he says, “The meaning of life is not simply to exist or to survive, but to move ahead, to go up, to achieve, to conquer”. I always think with same attitude to make myself better person than before and help the people who are in need. What do we...
