Today is the Madiba day; we're celebrating this important day without the person who has inspired us! Today, we remember a great man who fought for all of us, who suffered in prison, who was bitten so that we can live here in this big world without racism. Mandela was an activist who believed that it's our responsibility to fight and to defend our rights, and that it's up to us to make the world a better place for those who were oppressed and victims of the awful racism. Madiba...

9 May 2014 - When it comes to addressing the many complex problems in developing countries, and ending injustice, there is no silver bullet or magical solution - but giving children access to at least nine years of quality education is about as close as we can get. Education equips young people with the knowledge and skills they need to broaden their horizons, pursue their ambitions and fulfill their potential. It better positions them to understand and protect their human righ...

This is one of the advantages of today’s technological advancement that is applicable not only limited to youths but also the older generations. With the privileges at hand, Indonesia was capable of being part of an online global social activist movement called Change.org, allowing indivi...

The Pope has spoken about 2014. He calls for change, peace and unity across the planet. In my opinion, I believe the Pope to be as demanding as every other citizen of the Earth. Many skeptics thought 2013 was bad, unlucky even, because of the dreaded number 13. I think the bad quality of a year can only be attributed to the bad quality of the people who create it. And time is created by everyone! So, here's a proclamation to everyone saying that we should all get our heads out of t...

The UN's humanitarian chief Valerie Amos has warned of an unprecedented global crisis in 2014. She called for increased support for millions displaced by conflict and natural disasters. Valerie Amos warned Thursday that millions at the beginning of 2014 were facing severe hardship either as internally displaced people or as refugees. "2013 was a real test of the global humanitarian system, and there is no indication that 2014 will be any different," Amos told reporters in New York...

The day when homosexuality was removed from the International Classification of Diseases by the World Health Organization (WHO) on 17th May 1990 was the day when LGBT (Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender) rights were upheld by the world. Even though this happened twenty three years ago, there are still rejections against LGBT groups. Reality has said so. In my country of Indonesia, there are still many LGBT groups who are mocked and get rejected by society. I was born in a family...

The other day, I was watching a segment on the program NBC Nightly News in which a journalist was speaking with young Syrian children. I was astonished for two reasons: first, they spoke English at a higher caliber than most natives of my own country and carried themselves with such poise greatly unexpected from children of their age; second, they spoke of the war and the concept of death as if it were mundane, something to which they were obligated to acclimatize themselves. It fr...

Picture 40 years from now, you are probably sitting on your balcony having an afternoon chat with your son. He has just returned from college where he is taking a course in “the 20th century economic models.” Out of curiosity and with knowledge that you were actively engaged in development issues, he asks what role you played in shaping the economic model that the world adopted. He is curious to know what your input was, even however small, into the debate on the need for a shi...

There are nearly 7.2 billion people on our planet. Isn't that shocking? As it is, I think most of us Generation Y's are feeling that we are running out of space. For what? I'm not exactly sure. In fact, space is no longer the issue. Rather, it is affordable, efficient and available health care. The international program, Doctors Without Borders, also known by its French name Médecins Sans Frontieres (pardon the lack of accent grave for any French readers), caught my eye in this re...
