There are people behind the numbers. There is devastation as Ebola outbreak is ravaging communities across West Africa. The real problem is there, where resources and humanitarian aid are needed in the first place. (As an example, there are 10 ambulances for 500.000 people) The first cases of people that contracted Ebola outside West Africa have triggered all the alarms. And that has lead to a huge display in Europe and North America. The developed world had not planned an...

You must have heard about the awful news of the execution of the French hostage in Algeria a couple of weeks ago. In case you didn’t: a group of terrorists that supports ISIS (Islamic state in Iraq and Syria) slew a French tourist, the reason was too ridiculous “at least for me”, the terrorists simply did what they did to stop the French military air strikes against “ISIS”, they’re saying that France does not care at all about the Syrian or the Iraqi nation, and that th...

50 years ago our forefathers fought hard until Zambia gained her independence from British rule. The question we the youths of today should be asking ourselves is “What is it that we are going to be remembered for 50 years from now?” or “How will future generations judge our today’s actions?” We the youths of today’s generation are faced with a lot of challenges ranging from unemployment, corruption, AIDS pandemic, adverse effects of climate change and others. Since w...

For a nation to succeed, it is crucial that it’s people should be able to enjoy a decent life. Their purchasing power has to speak for the quality of life they enjoy. In achieving this, a major factor to be considered is the employability and the the employment status of the people. I think we all agree that the first group who should be prioritised in terms of employment is the youth. It is the youth who are employed who can contribute most effectively to the national economy an...

From the 15th October to the 18th October I was privileged to attend the one young world conference in Dublin, Ireland. The moments that stood for me were as follows: 1. Children and young people should never have to go through such abuse: at the age of 13 Yeonmi Park watched her mother be raped so as to protect her from rape. The heart wrenching story did not leave dry eyes in the crowd. 2. Everyone who spoke called for action. Our world is going into dangerous territory wit...

When the current leaders of Kurdistan get older and die… Who will lead? In the 21st century the power that is leading the world is youth's, but in Kurdistan it's Old’s. Whether it is good or bad, is a different story. The first independent Kurdish Government was declared in 1992 and after 2003 when the Baath Regime in Iraq was ended, the Region became more stable and economic growth started to raise rapidly, many doors were opened for globalization; hundreds of National...

Earth is a beautiful living planet of the Universe as the common habitat of more than 7 billion human population & millions of species of biodiversity. Our Earth provides us with food, shelter & with most of our requirements. Despite unavoidable free services provided by earth to humans we are not being able to pay off her kindness to us. Rather we humans are being cruel to our Earth by our selfish activities. Mahatma Gandhi said, “Earth provides enough to satisfy every...

Healthy living for most people is an option that only “sports people” get to enjoy. For most of us, jogging on Sundays and eating salad twice a week is already good enough to look after our bodies. However the more we grow and the more committed we are to academic or professional goals the less time we take to actually be healthy. This thought came to my mind because I recently went to the doctor and went out so happy that I wondered how was it possible for me to call gover...

Have you ever imagined a Horn-free Day in your city? Now imagine a horn-free day in a bustling mega-city of at least 20 million people, with frequently traffic congested roads. Imagine a horn-free day in Lagos, Nigeria! October 15 was symbolic not just because it was the International Day of Rural Women, but because the Lagos state government marked a horn free day for all motorists in the metropolis-and the compliance was great. If there is one thing Lagosians do not miss t...
