Hello! I am so sorry as I have been absent from VOY for a month. This being due to very hard times right now. I needed to gather myself in order to do my best and I'm back and ready. Due to all the things going on right now I've learned many things. The main one is that you can't fight pain with pain. We've all gone through many hard things, maybe many of you are in my situation in which you life has turned upside down. Life is a world of pain for everybody "...

Happy International Day of the Girl VOY fam! I look forward to a world where every youth consciously stands up for the girl child in some way. It is important to know that development impact can easily be multiplied by improving the livelihood of the girls and women in our communities. This is because girls and women have the ability to stimulate positive multiplier effects and have shown great potential to affect even more women and children. There is at least one thing you...

We Nepalese youths are qualified & hardworking but what we are deprived of is employment. Official records show that around 400,000 job seekers enter the market every year while the government & private sectors generate the employment opportunities for around 100,000 people only while the remaining 300,000 people remain unemployed. Due to unemployment in the country, the productive workforce of the country is choosing abroad as a destination, and leading to “Brain dra...

Youth are the hope of every country, they represent a major power. If we could use this power for the good of the country, I assure you that the future will be such a great one. But if we try to create obstacles and to prohibit those youth from building their country, I can say we won’t get anything, we will be like someone who is playing with the fire! I guess if the leaders of a country don't try to encourage youth, these leaders must expect a disaster in the future. They w...

In July, the UN System released a report that was essentially a “first draft” of the future Post-2015 Development Agenda and which will be what governments use to negotiate on for the official Agenda next fall. The UNICEF Post-2015 social media sites on Instagram and Tumblr will b...

Violence and discrimination - especially for LGBT and indigenous youth; 4. Schools that are located far from w...

Youth unemployment in Zambia is a national crisis that needs immediate attention. The time is now to transform the unemployment dilemma the youth way. We the youth have to take the reins in our hands and choose to do something about our situation rather than waiting for others to do something for us. Unless the youth work together and remain determined to do something about the unemployment crisis, it will simply remain a discussion discussed over and over. We have the potent...

“What I Would Tell My 20-Something Self" or “X things I wish I knew when I was 25”… I have comes across many articles with similar titles lately. Articles in which entrepreneurs, CEOs, writers, humanitarians and other persons express what they wish they had known at a certain age to avoid some failures or to gain more time maybe. Maybe they just wanted to avoid some disappointments or maybe not. Is it a wish or an advice for younger generations? Anyway, it doesn’t rea...
