The Seychelles had cinnamon, copra and vanilla plantations owned by the European ‘white’ masters and worked on by the slave ‘black’ population from East Africa and Madagascar. In 1835 slavery was abolished but the plantations continued. The m...

The debate about when adolescents should have access to contraceptives has been discussed for years and we have created a strategy that is full of flaws. Currently it is believed that a person at the age of 14 can be sexually active but they can only gain access to contraceptives at the age of 15. Between 15 and 17 years of age they must have their parent's permission to have access to contraceptives. It is only when the person is 18 that they have access to contraceptives with...

The largest proportion of the government’s budget is given to the Ministry of Health to cater for the health care of the local population. It became clear that free health care is an expensive expenditure for the government. So combined with the budget was the theme your health, your responsibility in an attemp...

The question that makes me most uncomfortable is: What is your permanent address? For people who have called two completely different countries home I struggle to answer this question. I usually then ask when will you be posting this item so I can equate to my location at the time. The word permanent itself suggest forever and as an international citizen, I struggle to see me in one place permanently - my passport will tell the tale. It is difficult to explain how I so easily...

*Close your eyes* Picture yourself flying over the Indian Ocean and you look down below and all you see is crystal blue waters and waves crashing. You take a look closer and see birds flying near the surface and dipping into the water occasionally. You dive into the water, 10 metres, 20 metres, 30 metres (just don’t hold your breath) and there with you are beautiful corals and fish. Be careful not to damage anything. It takes a long time for it to return the way it was. The S...

Youth from small island developing states, including the Seychelles have been taking action throughout this month in preparation for the UN SIDS conference in Samoa 2014. Young...
