I guess many of you when you were younger, asked yourselves what would you solve and how if you were president? I did it myself a lot of times, especially because living in Colombia means living surrounded by incipient violence. There are many things related to the never-ending violent history of Colombia that I would like to change: prostitution, drug dealing, scam or laundering but there is one that has particular importance for me. A few days ago I was studying about Chile...

In this focus piece, Youth to End Sexual Violence explores the issue of Female Genital Mutilation (FGM). From the blog: "My legs were completely numb and the pain between them was so intense. I wished I would die. I felt my poor mother hold me in her arms - my memory ends at this instant until I opened my eyes and the killer woman was gone. I was lying on the ground close to a rock, and my legs were tied together with strips of cloth binding me from my ankles to my hips so I could not move..."

"My legs were completely numb and the pain between them was so intense. I wished I would die. I felt my poor mother hold me in her arms - my memory ends at this instant until I opened my eyes and the killer woman was gone. I was lying on the ground close to a rock, and my legs were tied together with strips of cloth binding me from my ankles to my hips so I could not move. I turned my head towards the rock - it was drenched with blood as if an animal had been slaughtered there. I saw...my meat -...

They plead that you may for once; Understand them with honest kindness With futile prejudice you ignore them Before they even open up to you They have so many questions in life; Seeking someone's sincere listen Behind your mask not even your eyes; Are available for their unfeigned plea They open their mouths to cry louder; For someone to their tears benignly heed You block your ears hastily dubbing them The lost generation you in fear loathe...

Recently I have had the opportunity to chair 2 or 3 events (in Morocco) which deal with youth and their participation in the society. I was delighted yet surprised to see the level of enthusiasm that was shown by the participants. One of the event was an AIESEC- Morocco initiative called "Youth Leadership Day- Morocco in 10 years time". There were speakers from all backgrounds and nationalities who spoke on issues such as Women Empowerment, Ebola, Youths in Africa, Participatio...

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...

-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,...

100 million children and young people are affected by natural disasters every year. More than half of the world’s 58 million children and youth who are out of school live in countries affected by war and violence. The majority of these children and youth are girls. When an emergency happens, many children and youth cannot go to school. An earthquake or flood could have destroyed their school and a conflict made the journey to school unsafe. When faced with a natural disaster or a conflict, chi...

The school holidays start from June 26th (national holiday) and end at the end of September. Our team took advantages of the holidays to plant trees and to take care of coconuts trees at the seaside. Coconut trees grow easily at the seaside; they protect shorelines against erosion, slow violent wind and can become a source of money too. We saw beautiful beaches on the internet and still coconut trees are always seen around. After 4-7 years of growth, coconut trees are able to give...
