We know education is a form of learning in which knowledge and skills of people are passed on generation after generation through teaching or even research. Why must many youths be limited when it comes to education? Is it the lack of learning institutions in many countries? Or the fact that many youths do not have the self drive/ motivation and desire to be educated? Nelson Mandela once said "education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world" so as...

Namasté everyone. :) It’s 4:13 and instead of sleeping after taking my soothing gel for stomach burns, I’m delighted to finally write, complete and publish my first article as a selected and happy Blogging Intern at UNICEF Voices of Youth 2014. First of all, I apologize for my late start but I had some health issues and I wasn’t in good shape enough to get started and share my energies with you – the share of good and healthy vibes is important to me! I am a Mauritian,...

A Child is a person below the legal age of 18 years, as stipulated by the laws of Zambia. By virtue of been human children are entitled to rights which are known as child rights.

There have been quite a lot relating to this problem in news. It is shocking to hear about incidents of cyberbullying, killing, injuring or rape attempts in schools. But what is the reason behind such incidences? Why they are increasing day by day?

Here is a picture that shows how Mongu, a town in the western part of Zambia, is not cared for by its own people... I wonder what would happen if this kind of dirt is allowed to pile up for more than 5 years.... Let's stand together and find a way to show these people how to keep our environment clean....

Bearing in mind our Plan of Action, we can still have some insights on what is written. It is important to think on what we have to do and...

This time, we tackled a problem that has reached most learning places that are supposed to be where our children are safe: violence at school. Wether it is amongst students or violence between teachers and children; we have decided to voice thei...
