Children who are malnourished or even experiencing short-term hunger have limited capacities to learn. School feeding programs are a way to reduce hunger and improve the nutrition of children so that they are able to concentrate, understand and perform well academically. The meals that they receive at school contribute a great deal to better nourishment, good health and better academic performance for those children and their thinking ability is improved. This also lowers the burde...

The American government has shut down. After this past week's events and our bicameral legislature falling apart, American civilians are looking for a shining light ahead. In 1776, our founding fathers drafted a constitution to create a representative democracy. In this sense, Americans have had rights and regulations around them for centuries, it's part of this democratic culture. I am all for democracy, I mean I am perhaps the biggest advocate for democracy out there. Although...

MUSES . Sometimes I sit and wonder if there will ever be a better tomorrow because the events that unfold each passing day are really scaring and alarming. Imagine we no longer have real and natural ladies and women are all fake; fake eyelashes, fake nails, fake love and fake marriages. God please help this generation because we are definitely getting off hand. Do you really think all is well when juxtaposed with fact that we strive each day to make it, yet some persons make...

Stop Child Labour. Often we hear voices from the responsible and hearted people of society. How we can we be the ones who are also kind-hearted and responsible?! Lets talk ... Children do heavy work for the sake of money. The need money for buying food, food for themselves or for their family, and also for some other basic needs like clothes, drugs, school fees etc. Can you imagine this scenario: A 10 year old boy comes to a factory for work because his younger sister is sick and she needs medic...

Born and raised in Hong Kong SAR, my initial inadequate knowledge of factual political climate and human rights situation in China as a whole was due to reasons including, but not limited to; the Chinese government’s high political repression, insufficient respect of human rights, media and internet censorship, etc. All of which are gradually being localized in the H.K. as well. Moreover, a semi-covert mission that has been conducted by the Chinese government is the criminalizati...

Hello all..Here is my first time to tell and write to all of you about this theme. I have to chosen to write this theme because I hope that we can take better action for the next generations. There are so many children who can't study in school as usual. The the main problem is the mostly because of poverty within their family. But on my mind, the government is slow to start a movement for children's education, especially for poor families that cannot pay education fees. Whose fault is that? Is...

Should we have to live in fear of the government? Should children grow up in a society which represses their rights to free speech? Of course not! Government's job, by definition, is to protect and preserve the rights of its citizens. Recently, Edward Snowden, the supposed "whistleblower" was nominated by Norwegian lawmakers for the Nobel Peace Prize. Suddenly, the whole world starts freaking out saying things that fall into one extreme or the other. You have on one hand people say...

Beggars are very common in our lives, especially in Indonesia. I don’t know what it is like in other countries, maybe it will be the same in other developing countries. Let's look at Depok, as one of the cities in West Java as it is actually very close to Jakarta. You can find beggars everywhere in the city I live. They beg in the streets, in front of the shops, and come house-to-house to get money. Beggars come in many forms of people. She or he can be a child, teenager, or...

Hi, I wonder why it is so difficult to make everybody educated! Well, what do we mean by education? Is it just the ability to read, write and do some basic mathematics? Do we need schools for it? If so, why aren't people in developing countries educated with all the plans to educate their people? Is it because their government hasn't planned well or could not implement the plans? What should the people do? Can they do this on their own, can't they? I know of some people who hav...
