Bangladesh is a country that has a long history and sacrifice of millions of Freedom Fighters who died to see an Independent Bangladesh. But after 43 years of liberation and war, we are still struggling to establish our rights in every sectors. Political conflict and violence regarding the Government Showdown, 1000s of innocent victims have died. Bangladesh is like a gold mine. We have the world's largest beaches. We could be a heaven for investors. But until now we are leading...

@MariaJoseCelis wrote “Do one thing: volunteer” in her article ( http://www.voicesofyouth.org/en/posts/do-one-thing--v..- ). After reading this I decided to tell about my own experience. I work with people who have special needs. Due to Wikipedia special needs “is a term used in clinical diagnostic and functional development to describe individuals who require assistance for disabilities that may be medical, mental, or psychological.”. Thus those are people with Down s...


To be or not to be involved… That’s the debate.

Hello everyone, Latin America as you might know is a very violent region and delinquency is the signature to this sad issue, mafias, gangs, fiscal paradises, corruption, kidnapping, raping and forced evictions continue to frighten society towards placing new topics or fighting the ones that represent a high cost to development and security; however, great efforts are being made and huge change has already taken place. For example, the Peruvian fire-fighters department recently star...

Hi guys! I´s guessing we are aware on how the world has turned into a divergent place where injustice, war and hunger somehow have managed to coexist with better technology, and volunteering turning into a worldwide gear to enhance and improve healthcare and human rights education. However I´m not going to try to balance the “good” versus the “evil” in our world; rather I will pretend to answer a question I´m sure most of us have had at least once in our lifetime: if...

Two Lives/Two Miles Apart One of the main problems in Hong Kong is the massive wealth gap that exists between the rich and the poor. As it is an international financial centre, Hong Kong is the home of Asia’s richest man (Li Ka Shing), and a surging number of millionaires. A recent statistic shows that one in every 38 people in Hong Kong is a US millionaire. Glancing at Hong Kong’s towering skyline, modern buildings, high class shopping centres, and technological developmen...

Do you volunteer or do community work? How do you contribute to your community? A good way to help out is volunteering. Volunteering is amazing whether it's at an animal shelter or at an elderly home. The thing about volunteering is that you have to do it from your heart, why be a poser and pretend to care? When you help out whether it's just smiling at an elder or petting a dog you are helping out in the world. You may be thinking, but why should I volunteer...

Gender inequality is a major issue that has to be addressed urgently. It is happening nowadays (as EIGE in Europe proves with the Gender Inequality Index). Diversity is positive in every business or governmental institution. Therefore, companies are realising now how important is to embrace different points of view in their boards to be competitive in the markets. When it comes to governmental institutions -which are supposed to represent the citizens- can they truly represen...


Namasté everyone. :) It’s 4:13 and instead of sleeping after taking my soothing gel for stomach burns, I’m delighted to finally write, complete and publish my first article as a selected and happy Blogging Intern at UNICEF Voices of Youth 2014. First of all, I apologize for my late start but I had some health issues and I wasn’t in good shape enough to get started and share my energies with you – the share of good and healthy vibes is important to me! I am a Mauritian,...


The title is one of my favourite quotes from the short book “We should all be feminists” by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie which is a modified version of a talk she delivered in December 2012 at TEDxEuston, a yearly conference focused on Africa. I chose to recommend this “book” because despite its length, it forced me to take a deeper look at my own life and experiences. Just like her friend Louis in the book, my thinking was “I don’t see what you mean by things being diffe...
