In South Africa there has recently been increasing reports of violence at schools, either perpetrated by learners on other learners, learners on educators or educators on learners. I think this is a cause of great concern because with the level of violence and crime increasing in schools, access to quality education is impeded. According to the South African Journal of Education 2013:33(3) schools in urban areas, particularly townships are regularly prey to gangsterism, poverty...

The title of my ramblings is very much a question I face people with far too frequently. Everyone will have heard the phrase ‘we should help our own’ being flung around at one time or another when discussions over charity arises. What I ask you is how do we define this concept of ‘our own.’ Is our own our next door neighbour? Those that live in Scotland? Britain? Europe? United Nations? I feel that any sort of use of the term ‘our own’ is used when a person is justifyin...

I wrote a speech about Child Labor. I had the opportunity to deliver to a group of people about two years ago in a competition sponsored by the Rotary Club. Although prizes and medallions were far from the glitz of this serious event, I wanted to share with you all my speech. It is, perhaps, one of the most passionate addresses I've given, regardless of the text which lies so banally on this blank screen. Let me know what you think! Child Labor and the Never Ending Plague of...

There are no such “silent” Things at “Crystal of Knowledge”, Central Library of Universitas Indonesia (http://lib....

“Is being a girl a curse?” I have witnessed, heard and been a victim of the most bizarre questions the human ear can tolerate. However, never in all my 23 years on earth have I paused as a target to this gravelly concerned question. To think that a surprise visit to my grandmother’s home on her 77th birthday would introduce me to this question, was an open invitation for a cold shiver running with little electric feet all over my body. The trees glittered in the early m...

The goal is to have an independent Indonesia with one motherland, one nation and one language. It started from the first Indonesian Youth...

I write this blog after the devastating news that Janet, a six- year old little girl, from Manila has passed away. My friend had done some occupational therapy sessions with Janet, and the family treated Janet like she was a precious gem – and that she was. Janet lived in a slum area in Metro Manila. I find myself thinking the same thought process over and over and over. This is so unfair, unjust…NOT RIGHT! WHY?!?! Janet suffered from serious health issues. If she were in the U...
