To my knowledge, the major problems that the children of today's world are facing are malnutrition, gender inequality, child labor, child marriage, female genital mutilation, sexual crimes, war/violence, depression, lack of education, drug addiction, lack of emotional security etc. So, if I could make some wishes for children in 25 years time then I would make the following wishes: First of all, I wish that no child fetus will be aborted because of being a girl. I wish that every...

Frankly speaking, I don’t like politics very much. However, being a youth and a responsible citizen of the nation, I listen to political news and discussions to understand the political situation of the country. Unfortunately, Nepal is presently facing severe political instability despite the fact that there should have been political stability in this phase, as we held the second election for drafting our constitution by 22 January 2015. The first constitutional assembly was not...

Today, the whole world is celebrating International Day of the Girl Child. This year’s theme is “Empowering Adolescent Girls: Ending the Cycle of Violence”. This theme reflects that of the London Summit, in which my colleague Nathan (a children’s reporter) and I participated in July, as representatives of the Congolese children. For Day of the Girl Child, we hope to focus our message on child marriage. Child marriage is unfortunately a widespread practice in our country...

As I walked through the streets of Nairobi yesterday, I met a mob of people who most of them were women holding a demonstration. This was a peaceful demonstration in protest of incidences where last week three women were stripped naked by men for wearing miniskirts. Most of the people wore short skirts and some of the men in the protest wore skirts and dresses in solidarity to the women. Celebrities too joined the protest including major prominent leaders. The social media and the...

Gender equality In the course of recent history, a growing problem has plagued the world and has also gone unnoticed to all except those who must endure it. One may think that it is the rise of terrorist networks or perhaps the surge of diseases, however this one problem in particular is a problem that has not received much coverage at all, yet affects roughly around three billion people every day. This wide spread struggle endured by many is the rise of gender inequality. T...

I am a student in an International Baccalaureate high school in the United States. In my IB Spanish class, we are currently discussing social relations (one of the core themes for the course) and their implications toward human rights. I find it funny, hysterical even, that people think human rights violations do not exist. Sure, if you are an innocent, little girl scout of age 9, I would expect no more from you; however, if you are of thinking (that is, lucid thought) age, you sho...

3 days ago I was having a conversation with 2 friends(A and B); and in typical gossip fashion, a particular guy's name pops up... friend A blurts out that she found out he was gay from another friend; then friend B says she had a feeling he was. She went on to say (friend B), that it's very sad and embarrassing that he is this way; that if people found out, it would be impossible for him to get a job; that it would be harder for him to retain guy friends(because no guy wants to be...
