We are in Mali this week to meet Fatouma. She tells us about her commitment to women’s rights, how she got where she is now, as well as about the role of youth in the Malian presidential elections that were just concluded. My name is Fatouma Harber, I was born in Timbuktu, but I spent my childhood in Niger where I graduated from the Municipal High School of Niamey. I obtained my Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology at the University of Bamako, Faculty of Arts. Since 2007, I have...

See Me Not Poverty The notion is simple – look beyond poverty to really see the human being you are dealing with. As simplistic as it sounds I really feel that this mentality fails to be adopted by the mass. For example, most people feel pity and sorrow for the victims of poverty we see in UNICEF or Save the Children adverts but aside from the sadness do we really think about who the person displayed in front of us is. Do we think about their hopes and dreams? Do we think b...

Considering the global scenario I would like to introduce a great possible concept 'Youth for Change' (Y4C). Y4C is a youth led program that aims to inform, inspire and involving youths all around the world as agents of change in their communities through inter-disciplinary social development projects....

The American government has shut down. After this past week's events and our bicameral legislature falling apart, American civilians are looking for a shining light ahead. In 1776, our founding fathers drafted a constitution to create a representative democracy. In this sense, Americans have had rights and regulations around them for centuries, it's part of this democratic culture. I am all for democracy, I mean I am perhaps the biggest advocate for democracy out there. Although...

11 October is referred to as International day for the girl. It is on this day that emphasis should be on empowerment of the girl child. This day is very important to raise awareness on the importance of the developing girl because girls grow up into women. Girls are actually the backbone of societies and countries, hence the saying "give a house to a woman and she will turn it into a home". I believe empowerment for girls means providing access to and facilitating the means of...

In respect to the celebrations of girl education, I wish to inspire and empower the youth to fight for their right of education. In Kenya...well Africa as a whole, one is nothing without education. As a girl, I have been hit with a storm of frustration through all my years in school. However, despite all the hardships, I still struggle to earn the most powerful tool I will ever know, EDUCATION. "Real glory isn't about a smooth ride to the top. It's about picking yourself up whe...

Taking Care of the Environment The Current population of the United States is 311 million people. Consequently, the current world population is at 7 billion and counting. We’ve been hearing a lot about the car industry and the President’s affairs with GM but we should stop to think about the bigger picture for a moment---cars are just a single part of a much larger Earth. This Earth, one that we take for granted every day, has provided us with the necessities of life for ne...

“Is being a girl a curse?” I have witnessed, heard and been a victim of the most bizarre questions the human ear can tolerate. However, never in all my 23 years on earth have I paused as a target to this gravelly concerned question. To think that a surprise visit to my grandmother’s home on her 77th birthday would introduce me to this question, was an open invitation for a cold shiver running with little electric feet all over my body. The trees glittered in the early m...
