HIV can be contracted in many ways; some are born with it, some get it through accidents, yet some get it through defilement and rape. We all have people in our communities and schools that have HIV and we should always remember that they too are human and have the right to access that which we too have the right to. Let us look out for one another and care for one another, for the saying is true; if you are not infected then you are affected. Remember it could have been you!

In Bangladesh, human rights have been humiliated in every step of our lives in Bangladesh. Minorities human rights issues have been created by politicians in Bangladesh to get advantages in election platforms. Now where are the topics? In developing countries like Bangladesh peoples are not concerned about their freedom of speech, or choice. Mostly women's and children's are effected mostly in these cases.

The day I found out about Lokalizo there were many reasons why I wanted to get involved. I saw the potential of this project has, specifically the ability to create a strong connection between the citizens and the government which is very important, while I also thought that it will be a great opportunity for contributing to this project and gain experience. I also liked the way Lokalizo wants to appeal citizens for making them more responsible for changing their communities.While...

When I came across this article I was so glad that youth are actually taking it upon themselves to provide a sustainable and renewable energy source in Kenya. NAIROBI (Thomson Reuters Foundation) – It’s a hot afternoon in Nairobi’s Kibera slum, but 32-year-old Michael Matare is comfortable in his tiny room. The house is brightly lit by two plastic water bottles jutting out of the ceiling. Between them hangs a 100-watt bulb, but it isn’t needed. "Since I got these sola...

Climate change is the biggest environmental and humanitarian hazard/crises of our time. We need to take collective actions to ensure the adoption of cleaner energy sources at home and abroad.
