This is a video from the site UPWORTHY. It was originally posted on that site by Rajiv Narayan. To set the scene, the (poorly posed) question is referring to comments made by former Treasury Secretary and Harvard University President Lawrence Summers, who suggested that genetic differences could explain why there are fewer girls in science.

We wanted to be inspired, to be involved and to be motivated...

Empowering learners against crime Our learners have to feel safe at their schools as well as within their communities. The Safer South Africa Program capacitates the young people and learners in particular with information and skills that they need to stay safe and protect themselves and their families. This is a great empowerment initiative as our learners are the future leaders of tomorrow and thus need to grow and live without fear that is imposed by criminals.


As a Global Youth Ambassador for A World at School, I want to call attention to the 57 million children around the world are currently being denied their human right to an education. I am joined in this initiative by 500 other youth advocates for global education. Together, we make up the Global Youth Ambassadors group – launched on April 1, 2014 by the United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and the United Nations Special Envoy for Global Education Gordon Brown in suppo...

“All children and young people have a right to primary education, which should be free” (UN Convention, article 28) The Tech Girls Club in Darul Hardis is relying on this article to make demands from school authorities, the Parent Teachers Association and the School Management Committee (SMC) for an ICT Lab with computers for pupils to learn. Our School has a total of 720 students with just 4 computers with only 3 working well. These computers are in the headmaster’s Of...
