My name is Kelvin Chikwa. I am 17 years old from Lusaka, Zambia. I am at Munali secondary school.Here are some of the reasons I think Zambia is developing poverty and hunger.......................... Dependency Syndrome: In as much as foreign aid is essential for the development of country we should begin to look elsewhere to become more economically independent. Forty-four years after independence we are still dependent on the West for support. We can hardly stand on our own f...

My name is Alick. I am 17 years old and I come from Lusaka, Zambia. Here are some of the reasons I think Zambia is in poverty.................... Politicians/Leaders: The quality of leaders we continue to elect leaves much to be desired. Even in the business world, executives in Zambia continue to hire and promote their own in the organizations. This sidelines the most talented and leaves the mediocre to be the main decision-makers. The moment Zambia gives up the selfish way...

My name is Kesia and I am 18 years old from Zambia. The internet - which includes Facebook, Google, twitter - plays the big part in the average youths everyday life. The internet has been received with many different opinions. Some have welcomed it with open arms but in some extreme cases it is declared evil. A wise man once said "a knife in the hands of a chef can be used to prepare a meal but the same knife in the hands of the murderer will be used to take a life." This saying...

There were quite...

I want our government to enforce regulations on how we can keep our surroundings clean. People should be told of what happens to the environment when it is not taken care of. Here is a picture that shows how Mongu, a town in the western part of Zambia, is not cared for by its own people... I wonder what would happen if this kind of dirt is allowed to pile up for more than 5 years.... Let's stand together and find a way to show these people how to keep our environment clean....

I went to some places here in Mongu, Zambia and I did not like the way people of our country are treating the environment. Market places are becoming rubbish pits, litter is disposed of any which way. Is there a way in which we can stop this? How can we get the attention of these people and tell them how this is a discriminatory way of treating the environment? Our drainage system is supposed to be a means of controlling the flow of water during the winter season but is the same pe...

Positive Deviance is based on the observation that in every community there are certain individuals or groups whose uncommon behaviors and strategies enable them to find better solutions to problems than their peers, while having access to the same resources and facing similar or worse challenges. This is a video profiling of a Zambian based Voices of Youth Connect Educator called Josephine. She explains how she has emerged has a shining example in her community called Kanyama....

The rate at which waste in the recent year has been produced is very alarming.But did you know you can make a difference of the rate at which waste is produced simply by reusing and recycling our waste by doing so we also reduce the rate of pollution.Dont throw it all away lets rethink and make our planet last.
