How do you console a child who has become a victim of war? How does one console a child who has lost almost everything - from her parents, friends,home, limbs etc. in a war that she understands nothing about? It is heart breaking to see children as young as one month wail helplessly in Gaza hospitals with injuries incurred after someone threw a missile to them. It is even choking to see a lifeless body of a child who can't defend himself or herself lay by the roadside or in...

How can we just sit around and do nothing? America, do something! President Obama, take action! Formerly, I supported our President with blind hopes thinking that he would revolutionize the way the Untied States has approached foreign policy since the atrocities of the 1960s and beyond. However, much to my chagrin and dismay (also, on behalf of the many citizens in this country who agree with me), the United States has yet to lift a finger concerning the conflict in the Middle East...

The Sunni-Shiite split happened c. 650 C.E. In the religion of Islam, it carries great political and theological weight. Historically, Islamic states (e.g. Arabia, Persia, Ottoman Empire, Mughal India, etc.) have always lent themselves to be theocratic. The first state leaders who emerged from the birth of Islam c. 600s CE were the Caliphs. Over the next one thousand years, the world would see various Sheikhs, Sultans and Khans all vie for power in the culturally flourishing part o...

They killed forty eight men one night ago. They came in to the town, took out a police station, demobilized them and then proceeded to shoot at everything male in their path. They shot them and left their bodies lying in the dark to be collected and disposed. They didn't care; shot at close range and left them for dead. They killed forty eight people in less than four hours. Sadly this is not a one time only incident, there is more... A well executed shoot to kill attack in a h...

Man don't kill man, guns kill man! Its not a new thing in Nigeria to hear the sound of guns. People die by the hundreds daily and the world is looking. I am sure the world knows. The killing of some sects who want to take over the government of the people is also genocide. People are being killed daily and the world is watching, the world is watching us. Will the world leave us to die?

Korogocho is a sprawling slum in Nairobi; the fourth largest after Kibera, Mathare and Mukuru kwa Njenga, with over 2 million people living in an area of 2 square kilometres according to UN habitat. Like any other slum in urban cities, Korogocho has a myriad of problems: alcoholism, drug abuse, prostitution, crime and many diseases including waterborne diseases, malaria, HIV and Aids topping the list. I was recently in Koch as the slum is commonly known to meet Fr John Webo...

Violence is an issue that some of us face. It is a dangerous act of hatred towards someone. The damaged cause by violence is intolerable. The collateral damage of this cruelty is far beyond our ability to handle it. Recently, in my country, the news reported that 38 men took turned to rape two 15 year old school girls. Can you imagined that how cruel it is? Just a few days before, a pregnant mother was buried alive by her husband and was found dead. I was so ashamed, sad and an...

Voices of Youth Connect has allowed young people from all over the world to express their thoughts without any barriers. As members of associations, it has also allowed us from Morocco to work on subjects that are very dear to our hearts. This time, we tackled a problem that has reached most learning places that are supposed to be where our children are safe: violence at school. Wether it is amongst students or violence between teachers and children; we have decided to voice thei...

"When the Séléka came into Bangui and seized power on March 24 last year, all the schools closed down. I was attending secondary school at the time. But since there was no school and no jobs, I joined the Séléka. I was told that I would make money there. My father, who works for the military, registered me and I worked under his command. My parents are divorced. My Mum didn’t know that I had joined the Séléka. I'm sure she would not have liked it. I was lucky. I was not...
