Sunday 21st September 2014 was International Peace Day. We are grateful in the Seychelles that we live in a country in peace but our heart aches as fellow young people do not enjoy this human right. A right to live in a world free of conflict and war- a world of peace.

It became clear that free health care is an expensive expenditure for the government. So combined with the budget was the theme your health, your responsibility in an attemp...

It takes a long time for it to return the way it was. The S...

Youth from small island developing states, including the Seychelles have been taking action throughout this month in preparation for the UN SIDS conference in Samoa 2014. Young...
