I wonder why my campus allows students to smoke in the campus area. It just doesn't make any sense how a sacred and honoured institution like university gives permission for student-smokers. Pay a visit to the canteen, you will sense the haze that comes from cigarettes filling the air. There is just a small room left for fresh air. What makes you fit in my campus' canteen? Cigarettes probably do since a lot of people use it to be socially accepted. Hence, no one seems to...

It’s This-able! Talking about 'diff-ability' is something that is quite sensitive in our environment. On the other hand, actually we do not need to feel sorry to show our empathy. What matters is that we treat everybody in the same way, that’s how we appreciate each other. Take a look at Mr. Djumono. He is one of the candidates to be one of the members in legislative assembly for West Java province. He is also the only person with diff-ability that goes as the c...

Children who are malnourished or even experiencing short-term hunger have limited capacities to learn. School feeding programs are a way to reduce hunger and improve the nutrition of children so that they are able to concentrate, understand and perform well academically. The meals that they receive at school contribute a great deal to better nourishment, good health and better academic performance for those children and their thinking ability is improved. This also lowers the burde...

Recently, I went through something that was pretty revelatory. I mean, I never understood why some things in terms of global issue prioritization made it first/ over Education. In my opinion, I always thought and always will think that Education comes first. Then, one of my close family members told me that education would rarely ever benefit anyone if they could not go to school because they were too sick. Upon asking the reasons for whatever illness they had acquired, I realized...

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...

Will you join me?” So tomorrow is Global Handwashing Day 2013! As an Early Childhood Studies student I am constantly surrounded by babies and children...

We've been in a situation where we are supposed to do a lot of activities within a limited time, so we lose th...

I write this blog after the devastating news that Janet, a six- year old little girl, from Manila has passed away. My friend had done some occupational therapy sessions with Janet, and the family treated Janet like she was a precious gem – and that she was. Janet lived in a slum area in Metro Manila. I find myself thinking the same thought process over and over and over. This is so unfair, unjust…NOT RIGHT! WHY?!?! Janet suffered from serious health issues. If she were in the U...
