In democracies like the one I live in, politics is, whether we like it or not, an integral part of our lives. In everything we read, everything we eat and even in everything we touch is a story interwoven with politics. We know of people who have given up their lucrative careers to come into politics and do community service; we know of committed “career politicians”, and we also know of the greedy and the slovenly type who live off public property. Therefore in politics, a...

Recently I have had the opportunity to chair 2 or 3 events (in Morocco) which deal with youth and their participation in the society.

There were speakers from all backgrounds and nationalities who spoke on issues such as Women Empowerment, Ebola, Youths in Africa, Participatio...

Hello, my name is Eunice and I’m 13 years old. I’m in year 2 and I’d like to study to become a businesswoman. I’ve been a child reporter from Kinshasa for almost 2 years. Over the 2 years, I got to learn how to know more about my rights and took part in many activities during which I was able to share my views. Through advocacy, we, as child reporters were able to appear on national television, to finally directly communicate with children and also reach key authorities w...

Laetitia, 14 years of age, lives in Goma. She is the Peace Ambassador for the North Kivu Province. Latitia’s Remarks: Those three days in Kinshasa were truly well spent. I learnt so many things about the Framework Agreement for Peace, Security and Cooperation in the DRC and the Great Lakes region and the Follow-up Mechanism. We were also informed about our culture and the different values that unite us. But, what I liked more was being able to meet children from all of...

Rights should be respected and honored by another person. Most rights harbored by indigenous people are marginalized because in many cases, they are different with the other people. This is the wrong perception because they are alike. Indigenous people are, perhaps, meant as tribal community who have a close relation to their original lands or nature. This definition is almost false, and the proper meaning of indigenous people are descendants of the original people before their lands were occupi...
