Recently a friend of mine told me how a girl he met on a social network sent him nude pictures of herself for money - which he later sent to his other friends at a hostel. This and many more are yet untold of how teenagers send sexually explicit messages to flirt with someone and how some girls send nude photos of themselves because they were pressured by boys.

Common callings. They unite us. They form the basis of conflict-free multicultural societies. Whether it's the people of an oppressed nation, letting go of their past disputes, and working together to achieve freedom, or simply the students of an international school, accepting each other's cultures as they strive towards receiving an education. It is their calling that binds them. We have our calling. Our planet is dying. Global warming, pollution, depletion of natural resourc...

This is what technology can do for our world, if we are willing to use it properly and wisely to help t...

Everyday, we hear tales of the ways tech companies make a difference. Apps that will somehow solve problems that big institutions couldn’t in the last 50 years; social networking sites that somehow spark revolutions that people themselves don’t… Many tech startup pitches would give high schoolers the idea that, in order to eradicate poverty, there’s no point learning about poverty itself; you just need to learn how to code. This overly optimistic talk of technology (bri...

Businesses have an extensive role to play in the development of children and youth globally. If both major corporations and small & medium enterprises decided to dedicate their social responsibility programs on advocating children's rights, the results and the impact would be immense. Currently, there are 57 million children who are out of school and need access to quality education. Businesses and corporations can bring education to this huge number of devastated children by c...
