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...

“To fall in a mud is not a disgrace but to stay there is”. I failed many times in my life, but I never thought myself as a failure, more I failed, more I tried to stand up being stronger than before. 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...

Bonjour! :) I have been quite busy physically, morally and psychologically with numerous events occurring in my life lately. I have read, witnessed, realised, wondered, thought, learnt and done a lot. I realise that my life is, indeed, a wealthy one in its own way and I give thanks for everything Life gives to me. Furthermore, what is going on in my country really strikes me and I feel it’s time to start speaking up. As my piece got too lengthy, I decided to write it into two par...

As a new schoolyear is starting, it seems very important for me to talk to you about children’s education in the South Kivu province. Education is an essential factor which the child needs in his own interest and in the interest of the nation. In South Kivu , some children miss the path to school and this is not by their own will. If thousands of children do not finish the school cycle, it is notably due to exaggerated school fees, lack of schools especially in rural areas,...

After two months spent at home, the DRC student will get back on the school path on September 08, 2014. Many things interfere with the excitement of Congolese students going back to school, here are some examples. School fees. I spoke with a 14 year old friend about going back to school and he explained to me that where he wanted to enroll for school, he was asked to pay 150 dollars for the enrollment and 100 dollars for the confirmation when his family does not have the means....

So many people hate LGTB people. But why? Why make someone's life a living hell because you are something. It's like picking on somebody and creating a world wide hate to someone that has brown hair.

Hello everyone.. My first reblog on VOY is going to be a recent post I read written by the blogging intern Maria (http://www.voicesofyouth.org/en/users/227642).The subject of the post is the rights of LGBT people. And to be honest with you, this post is to express my feelings about this subject. LGBT people are a community that has faced racism, discrimination and prejudice over the years. Even though we live in 2014, in the 21st century, many people still spread hate towards...
