100 million children and young people are affected by natural disasters every year. More than half of the world’s 58 million children and youth who are out of school live in countries affected by war and violence. The majority of these children and youth are girls. When an emergency happens, many children and youth cannot go to school. An earthquake or flood could have destroyed their school and a conflict made the journey to school unsafe.

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.

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 "...

How to win friends and influence people? This might be a question some of you have asked at some point in the past. Do you think it is about having reputation, about having money or success? Do you have to be an extrovert or to have some dark-magic techniques in order to make people go the way you want? Well, NO! And Dale Carnegie explains that in his book, which has as title exactly this question. This piece of writing is a self-help bestseller, one of the first ever published,...

As you may be aware one of the great things about social media is its reach and, as we saw from the various forms of the Arab Spring, its ability to bring about rapid change. A number of initiatives have been using social media platforms in Africa in innovative new ways – particularly when it comes to engaging and activating wider audiences – and particularly the youth – around issues that matter the most to them. On the 22nd of October 2014 I spoke at Strathmore Universi...

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...
