How many times have you LET others step over you because you are a girl? As the years come and go, and the world " evolves " there has been an alarming issue remaining, and it has not ceded -to be honest- it has grown. That issue is the lack of respect, and following of women's and girls rights. We see that women...

When I was teaching Grade 9 students on my practicum, I would start off the day with an inspirational video. This one in particular, "Day of the Girl" by the amazing YouTube channel, "Shots of Awe" (motivational speaker, Jason Silva) spoke to me. Growing up in a developed country, Canada - I still had challenges towards getting an education. I want to share this with young girls and women who may be going through these challenges. Empowerment and inspiration are important, they dri...

These hungry, lonely and helpless young children roam the streets day and night no where to go, no future, no education, no parents, no one cares. They are victims of poverty, domestic violence and orphanism, They hunt for food and hope and survival! They become again victims of...

I was on the lookout for projects where I would be able to contribute to my society. When I first saw by chance the Lokalizo page online it looked amazing to me. After reading about this project I understood they were looking to increase the awareness of community members, civil society and government about the social issues which affect our community. The best part of the objectives of Lokalizo are to explore ways to empower small groups of citizens or young people to contribute p...

From installing baby gates to fastening bike helmets and seat belts, parents put their kids' safety first. But once kids hit adolescence, the risks can become less obvious. When it comes to teen dating violence, for example, many parents are blind to the risk and so don't offer the help their children may need. Even when parents recognize teen dating abuse, their attempts to intervene can be off-target and often go ignored.

What is love? Why is it so hard to be loved? These questions rushed into my mind a few years ago. What I thought to be a simple question to be answered but instead it was a life changing experienced. It was a journey that changed my perspective towards life and shine a light on love. It all began when I was just a little boy. My sisters love to watch dramas on television every day. I vividly remember a drama that aired every night and they would watch it religiously. The main t...
