This is such a perfect week for me, because I got a chance to join to the very 1st UNICEF Activate; Innovating for Children – Innovating for Equity by UNICEF Indonesia to celebrate the 25th Convention on the Rights of the Child. It was held on April 23rd, 2014 at Erasmus Huis, Jakarta, Indonesia. As a youngster, I feel really happy because there were many other youth that came to that place with the same purpose as me. We wanted to be inspired, to be involved and to be motivated...

http://news.distractify.com/culture/childrens-bedrooms-across-the-world/ Recently, I saw something posted on Facebook which was incredibly thought provoking. It wasn't some ornate tapestry, confounding riddle or joke I could not understand. Rather, it was a demonstration of the condition of the world through the medium of photography. I was appalled. The photos were not ugly or disgusting. Instead, I felt as if my place in the world was so detached from the places of others that...

Around the world, we see how people contribute to the development of their societies. There is no society which is stagnant since from creation and there is no society which can really move on when there is an imbalance in development. Disability around the world has sparked much fire into the eyes of many organizations and governments. From the UN fact sheet in 2006, 25% of the world’s population is affected by disability, 70% of people living with disability are in developing...

Ukraine has just suffered a civil revolution against former President Viktor Yanukovitx. 60% of the population went to the entrance of Ukraine at the European Union. The President ignored these claims so people decided to start a revolution. Viktor Yanukovitx tried to stop this revolution with violence but he didn’t know that it would be a bad way to do it. In the last few weeks 80 people were killed by Berkut (government’s police), which was commanded by Yanukovitx. It has sta...

Nigeria was among the countries with worst education indicators globally.

So I saw this tweet that UN Education Report ‏@EFAReport had posted this morning and I read the article. I read it again and then paused for a moment of thought. The Nigerian students that I have come across have appeared to be rather studious. Seeing this article I now understand why. Education is much more of a bigger picture. So after reading this I have a few questions. 1) Why is it like this? 2) What has gone wrong over the past few decades? 3) What improvements...

When it comes to discussions on human rights, everyone focuses on the right to life, right to clothing, right to housing, right to work, equality, freedom of expression and so on. No one really cares about electricity. Can you imagine a day without electricity? Oh, come on! We get depressed if we don’t get internet for a day! The problem is it is considered a privilege. When we talk about electricity, we think of it as a “want” such as for using computers, televisions and...

I chose this topic 'Climate Change' under the theme 'Environment' because the world today is affected by flood and global warming which are the results of climate change. I have seen people who are suffering from skin cancer. It can be caused when the skin is exposed to intensive high temperature, which is global warming. This caused a great impact on my life because cancer claims a lot of lives day by day. It has also built interest in me to be one of the people in the world who...
