What ever preconception you have about money, you must be aware that the winds of circumstance blow on all of us in an unending flow that touches each of our lives. Many young people around the world constantly experience the blowing winds of scarcity, shortage and insufficiency. We are blown daily by the same winds of circumstance and buffeted by the same turbulent storms of discontent about the rich getting richer and the poor getting poorer. We have failed to realize that wh...

Do the youths really know about money? We all know the definition of money as a medium of exchange or a legal tender for buying and selling. We all want to make a lot of money, youths are known with having many ideas bubbling within them, but it seems implementation is impossible because of lack of funds. For lack and insufficiency to be reduced and perhaps eradicated especially among the youths, there is an urgent need to understand some things we can do with money. These...

I recently read "I am the Messenger" by Markus Zusak, and found it an engaging and poignant book. “I am the Messenger”, written by Markus Zusak (author of “The Book Thief”), tells the tale of a drifting and listless teenager, Ed Kennedy. At first glance, Ed appears to be a complete loser. An underage cabdriver with not much of a future ahead of him, Ed spends most of his leisure time playing poker and pining helplessly over his best friend Audrey, who doesn’t even belie...

Young people were encouraged to take a selfie and...

The question that makes me most uncomfortable is: What is your permanent address? For people who have called two completely different countries home I struggle to answer this question. I usually then ask when will you be posting this item so I can equate to my location at the time. The word permanent itself suggest forever and as an international citizen, I struggle to see me in one place permanently - my passport will tell the tale. It is difficult to explain how I so easily...


Hola amigos! :) First, I apologise for my 2 weeks of absence. I’m slowly getting back on track and feeling better! I’ll be honest - it was going to be my first retreat ever and the thing is, I was going there all alone and I hesitated to make it as I feared not being able to mingle and click with the youngsters there, finally find myself alone, home-sick and uncomfortable despite the promise of intense sharing. Clinging to that promise was my first step towards upcoming m...
