A common but widely ignored predicament is the indifference people show towards animals. Particularly in developing countries where agriculture is the primary industry, livestock and cattle are perceived as means to a better living, not vital to their livelihood. Since most of the rural farming communities in developing world usually live hand to mouth, they do not have enough means to; feed their livestock, treat their injuries and ailments, and have proper saddles and carriag...

It's back to school season for many of us, and we are all going through different emotions. After all we are different people at different stages of our lives. But what are you feeling as you go back to school, college or university? Excited. For me the emotion is fear. Fear of failure. Fear of failing my GCSEs. But then as I sat on the train this morning I contemplated the thought of going back to school. Thinking. Wondering. "What do we actually learn at school?" We learn about...

There is a prevalent stereotype that Asian countries heap extreme amounts of academic pressure on their youth, and, in my community, that is completely true! Universities in my country don't pay attention to extra-curriculars, hobbies, or your passion- instead of a holistic application process, universities simply request your academic grades. Because of this, schools, teachers, parents, and even students, place too much pressure on themselves to perform well in school. So now that...

Globally, 35.3 million [32.2–38.8 million] people were living with HIV at the end of 2012. An estimated 0.8% of adults aged 15–49 years worldwide are living with HIV, althoug...

If I have to pick one big challenge for youth in my country, it’ll definitely be unemployment. As a Tunisian young citizen, I have always been worried about the raising rate of unemployment. In fact, the unemployment rate among Tunisian university degree holders is 30 percent, more than twice the 2005 rate of 14 percent. Year after year, the number of young people with a university degree increases, but also a large number of them find a major difficulty in finding a job. F...

For Zahni, safety means being able to walk around without having to be watched by adults. She feels safe at school, but not at malls and busy places. Zahni recounts a time getting off the train in Pinelands station in Cape Town, when all didn't go as planned.

Hi everyone!, if you´ve read any of my posts you might already know I live in Chile but I am Colombian. This week's post topic brought me back to the harsh inequality reality highly present here but a lot more directly noticeable there back in my country. Since I am not there I´m not going to portrait a particular case but I will introduce you to 2 different realities coexisting at a bare minimum distance. So I´m from Barranquilla, where it´s summer all year long pretty muc...

So...My results were announced on Wednesday. I woke up really early, since I was so nervous & curious to find out if I made it. But, deep down, I had a feeling that I didn't pass to the university I had as a second choice, after journalism. But what I would see was the last thing I could imagine... I didn't pass. Anywhere... I froze...I couldn't believe it. ''Not even a single one?'' I thought. I was sad and angry. I was prepared for it, but when it happens, it’s a litt...
