To commemorate the SIDS Youth Global Action Day I thought I would write a post about small island developing states and what the youth in my country are doing to create awareness among ourselves about small island developing states and the role we are deciding to play in achieving sustainable development. Youth from small island developing states, including the Seychelles have been taking action throughout this month in preparation for the UN SIDS conference in Samoa 2014. Young...


The youth of the AIMS region (Atlantic, Indian Ocean and Mediterranean and South China Seas) decided it was time to take a stand, to create a legal entity and create a dedicated network for young people to advance their aim to promote sustainable development in the region.

An island treasure in the ocean has not been able to escape the rampant drug trade haunting the world today. Many families suffer daily as one of their members is addicted to drugs. The problem does not end there. With heroin administered with syringes, even more problems have emerged. This has included the potential of propagation of HIV/AIDS and Hepatitis C. The Ministry of Health is contemplating whether the needle exchange programme should be implemented in the Seychelles....

I use the phrase how to fish metaphorically, we do not need so many fishermen. Poverty is one of the greatest problems of the world. A millionaire alone will not be able to eradicate poverty but the investment in the human race can be a big step in the right direction. Why does poverty exist?...

I am a 24 year old islander who practises as an advocate in the Seychelles courts and during out-of-office hours commits her time to empowerment of young people through my role as Speaker of the 11th cohort of the Seychelles National Youth Assembly.

A child is born, a resource to our world; Her first thought is not the right vote; In her mother’s arms she’s curled; Her eyes full of hope. She cries because she is hungry; Her mother’s heart aches, For she has no food to give her; But it is that which she needs. A right to food, a right to a home, A right to feel safe, a right to roam; The world awaits her vote but she awaits a meal; It is that which the world must give her. Her mother’s love, a warm plate...
