Through advocacy, we, as child reporters were able to appear on national television, to finally directly communicate with children and also reach key authorities w...

Recently, I was reading an article about Iran. You know, I don't really delve into matters pertaining to the Middle East. I mean, it's always been a dream of mine to learn Arabic, but I don't really keep up with the news from that region. However, the article which I read was striking. Through it, I found out that six people (specifically young dancers) were arrested for making a fan video for Pharell Williams's song "Happy". Although they were recently freed, it got me thinking....

The second day of the OneMinutesJr. workshop brought more talking and idea development. The participants of this workshop have a lot to say and were getting to the core of their ideas (the ones that really convey something personal still takes some time). Many times we delve deeper with youth to share something very close to their hearts. Yesterday, the focus of one young woman’s story was trying to be perfect and fulfilling expectations. We asked her to think more about it fro...

Have you ever felt alone? Scared, worried...hungry perhaps? One of the most common ways to cope with this is to reach out to an ultimate being.

But is it right for me to tell you what god to pray? Is it right for you tell me and chastise me if I do not? These are the questions of religious fre...
