It was such a gory sight when at about 11am on 16th December 2014,a group of Taliban gunmen made their way into Army Public School in Northwestern Pakistani city of Peshawar through a graveyard situated behind the school. They fired shots sporadically at the kids and teachers and this claimed the lives of 145 innocent children with about 186 injured. It was a terrible massacre, a targeted one at that. It is not just a Pakistani tragedy but an International Calamity and one that...

The HIV and AIDS awareness day was a while ago (December 1st) .A few weeks ago I watched a video from one of my role models Troye Sivan. In this video he talked about HIV and AIDS, and the importance of being informed about it. He said that some days ago he had watched a movie called The Normal Heart, it was about HIV and AIDS. He gave a brief description of the events in the movie that lead him to come to the sudden realization that him, a 19 year old gay man, who has had a ‘’...

Terrorism is hurting our world, it’s harming our children, and it’s killing us every day. Thousands or may be even millions of children are suffering because of terrorist groups, because of some people who thought they represent God; any way, killing, bombing and murdering other people is unacceptable, I don’t care about their reasons, I don’t care about their justifications and excuses, it’s just unacceptable no matter what. I feel really bad when I hear about terroris...

Somebody sent me a really disturbing video showing a grown woman severely abusing a toddler. The video was already trending online and the lady had been tagged ‘the monster nanny.’ To say the least, the video was horrible and leaves much to be desired. It sparked many angry reactions over the internet in Uganda and beyond. According to online news stories, the video was filmed by a hidden camera and showed a 22 year old nanny and an 18 month old child. The father of th...

Through few years now, I had some experience in helping kids with their school subjects such as English or Math as a volunteering task or simply to save some pocket money. However, this time things were slightly different. In the beginning of summer, my neighbors’ seven-year-old daughter, “Hiba”, asked me to teach her how to use her new tablet and some computer basics as well. And, I was glad to accept, so we set up a schedule for our sessions. In fact I accepted this task fo...

Youths take up most of the world’s population and so when there are problems they are the most affected. In Zambia 68% of the population constitutes of young people. Therefore young people are exposed to so many problems or pressures like lack of education, HIV/AIDS, teen pregnancies, early marriages, peer pressure, abuse, unemployment and so many more. So if this is what the majority of the world’s population go through then what must we do about it? Well in order for a pers...

Most people in between the age 15-24 are found in romantic relationships just for the fun of it. If you are dating and you fall in this age ratio ask yourself this ‘is this love or infatuation?’ then take yourself back to the times when you are together. Do you act like you love each other or do you act like you want each other, do you only talk about sex and things related to each other’s bodies. In most adolescent relationships sex is a must but why should it be when se...

Why do you think men beat women is it because they want respect or because they just want to? Well, mostly from what I’ve heard men beat women because they claim that the women deserve it but that’s not the case men beat women because they want to be in control, to be respected, to satisfy their ego and finally to release their frustrations. Let’s talk about why they do it to be in control. Some men feel that it is their known right to be in control so when women disagree...

I have had the most interestingly fascinating encounters with children this year alone. In the process, I have learnt quite a lot about them. Children are mostly not trying to hide their feelings. They are as easy to read as their books. Perhaps the only things not as easy are their questions. They ask you things you think you know in the most ambiguous and complicated way. So you probably understand the silence and listlessness that ensued after I got the question: "Aunty, wh...
