Youths take up most of the world’s population and so when there are problems they are the most affected. In Zambia 68% of the population constitutes of young people. Therefore young people are exposed to so many problems or pressures like lack of education, HIV/AIDS, teen pregnancies, early marriages, peer pressure, abuse, unemployment and so many more. So if this is what the majority of the world’s population go through then what must we do about it? Well in order for a pers...

Today, the whole world is celebrating International Day of the Girl Child. This year’s theme is “Empowering Adolescent Girls: Ending the Cycle of Violence”. This theme reflects that of the London Summit, in which my colleague Nathan (a children’s reporter) and I participated in July, as representatives of the Congolese children. For Day of the Girl Child, we hope to focus our message on child marriage. Child marriage is unfortunately a widespread practice in our country...

1 in 6 people in America face hunger. Households with children reported a significantly higher food insecurity rate than households without children in 2011: 20.6 percent vs. 12.2 percent. Food insecurity exists in every county in America. In 2011, 17.9 million households were food insecure. 50.1 million Americans struggle to put food on the table. In the US, hunger isn’t caused by a lack of food, but rather the continued prevalence of poverty. More than 1 in 5 children is at risk of hunger. A...

God never changes a condition of a people until they first change themselves. Some of us go to church every week, go to the Mosque every week, and that's all we do. Week after week, we sit in our seats, clap, bear witness, and shout hallelujah, and go home in the same condition we left in. For many of us, it's the same routine. You get your joy from going to church and the Mosque, but no joy comes afterward because you aren't willing to get up and change your condition. When yo...

With the international tensions that are going on these days, I feel the need to write this article. These days, I feel like people pay more attention to politics a little more than culture. People pay more attention to any governments' bad actions, thinking that it reflects people's beliefs. People believe stereotypes, making them judge others based off of these. People tend to be ethnocentric out of nature, forgetting that their ethnocentrism can be a little offensive at times. This obviousl...

If you are up for a classic that analyses critical issues in development policy and economics, you should read The Bottom Billion by Paul Collier. What stands out for me in the book are the relevance of some issues broached for the present, the elaborate development instruments-including aid, conflict prevention and resolution, trade, international laws and charters-prescribed; his acknowledgement that there is no one-size-fits-all approach for the different economies trapped i...

-As you make steps further, menacing to engulf the human race pitilessly, we plead: Kindly spare us. - We are a flawed species, with different views. Be it a curse from God or our own negligence, we plead: Forgive us wholeheartedly. - Our tears bear testimony of the pain felt when seeing our dear ones dying, we plead: Soothe our ongoing cries. -You've shaken the world of many, taking them away with you, we plead: Blunt your axe please. - We are used to being bruised and pained,...

Each one of us loves his country. Personally, I have no problem in sacrificing my life for the good of my country, it's such an honor to me! I am sure that we all hate to see our countries suffering and we always wish that we could do something to help our nation; actually, I have no doubts at all that it's our duty and our responsibility to preserve the future of our country! I think the thing that makes me sad is seeing my motherland suffering. It's an awful feeling and I hope...

What ever preconception you have about money, you must be aware that the winds of circumstance blow on all of us in an unending flow that touches each of our lives. Many young people around the world constantly experience the blowing winds of scarcity, shortage and insufficiency. We are blown daily by the same winds of circumstance and buffeted by the same turbulent storms of discontent about the rich getting richer and the poor getting poorer. We have failed to realize that wh...
