As a young person I see it as my responsibility to ensure that children and the youth are educated. Education is power as it is said, and it is a right of every child. My view, however, is that there is still a gap yet to be covered in education systems currently in place in many nations. I can point to the system here in Zimbabwe. The system is more focused on academically inclined children yet not all children are academically gifted and not all students will end up in universities and colleg...

The amount of people who daily learn and practice different languages through youtube; of those who meet in chat rooms and end up become great friends after talking on skype; plus the growing worldwide communities through which it is possible to meet people, buy products, volunteer, practice or learn new skills, discuss, raise awareness and understand new issues is outrageous. I have to say I´m really impressed by the way one can carry so many books on a little kindle and how...

For my first entry, I would like to put in, something that is related to my choice of profession and something that is dear to me. I am Joy Macalla, a fourth year Elementary Education major. Since I am now in my fourth year, I am already taking up practice teaching, therefore I am now a student teacher. In my country, problems in education are very rampant especially in public schools in the rural areas. From the distance to the resources, there is a problem. But, there is always h...

Youth leadership is a remarkably important part of the youth development process. In a world which has a plethora of challenges, as the young generation, we have to equip ourselves with leadership capacity to face those challenges in our community, or even in our country. That’s why i think it’s always interesting to talk about Youth Leadership and also Youth Empowerment. Last month, I met David Nelson Bassey who is an author of “The New Generation of Leadership”, and also...

By Kamanda (19), Plan Global Youth Advisory Panel (GYAP) member. Just 12 years ago my country started revitalising its education system after the civil war had destroyed almost everything. Today, the deadly Ebola virus is destroying our education systems once again. Schools have closed down indefinitely and lessons or classes are banned. Our tutors are paid but they give no lessons, some of them no longer study or research their own subjects. Candidates of external exams...

Taking a walk down the streets of Yaounde, the capital city of Cameroon, I overheard two young people conversing. They were comparing their standards and level of education. One of them talked about how he has gone to a professional university and will soon be enrolling to do his masters program. His friend heaved, sighed, and said he wished his dream of becoming an agricultural engineer could be a reality but his parents cannot afford for the cost of training him to a professi...

A few days ago an LGBTI organization in Chile launched a children comic-book meant for kids to understand what family means outside the spectrum of conservative education and social prejudice that they are surrounded by. And the media went crazy on the topic - parents, teachers, young people and adults took a minute to have their say about the issue. Some people recognized it was necessary to teach at early ages values and realities that we should face with tolerance and respec...

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...
