Humanity! Ubuntu! Bantu!anthu!abantu! All but words that have the same meaning in linguistic nature. Humanity! A symbol that once kept Africa united and saw people come together to fight a common era. Ubuntu! We came from all corners of the diaspora and fought a common era - slavery. Colour was not a definitive picture for there was no black, coloured , Indian, Hutu, Nsenga, Bemba, Tswana, Yoruba, Xhosa, Ngoni and all nativity but we were one Africa bound together in love...

Hi everyone! Current societies run faster than ever, that´s why new things are more desired and younger people have earned renewed appreciation because features of ourselves and our surroundings seem to change at the speed of sound. One thing that comes out of it as a beneficial fact is that younger people are now hugely recognized as subject of law but also seen no longer as just "the future" but also the present A way to illustrate this is by looking at how children and yo...


Hola amigos! :) First, I apologise for my 2 weeks of absence. I’m slowly getting back on track and feeling better! I’ll be honest - it was going to be my first retreat ever and the thing is, I was going there all alone and I hesitated to make it as I feared not being able to mingle and click with the youngsters there, finally find myself alone, home-sick and uncomfortable despite the promise of intense sharing. Clinging to that promise was my first step towards upcoming m...

On Monday, Youth to End Sexual Violence was at the United Nations to advocate for the development of Millennium Development Goal (MDG) #3, on gender-equality and women’s empowerment, during the MDG 500 event with Malala Yousafzai and UN Secretary-General Ban Ki Moon. There was widespread support for male involvement in women's empowerment initiatives, and everybody agreed that we need to focus on gender-equality within the next 500 days before the MDG target date.

To dream is human: In your mind, you are free. How human are you? Such as in your dreams? Every passing moment bears testimony of new goals being set; endless rays of hope and foreordained rejuvenation. In the profundity of such a dimension of reality, emerged an infinite ocean of ideas, twirling together to produce thought-provoking themes. Under this umbrella, the study of human choices and the re-questioning of conflicting philosophical ideologies cannot be isolated. Yet, ou...

Pay for treatments, an evil act against those most affected by HIV: The poor. Yes, in Honduras people with HIV, pay for antiretroviral treatments and viral load tests and CD4, which is a constraint to care access care. This topic has been playing for a long time, demanding that treatments should be free, but governments have turned a deaf ear to this complaint. In Honduras the poor are sustained of the bureaucracy and corruption that is increasingly outrageous. About 70% of...

A place where the blossoms are bright A place where the land is not torn A place where my people are free A place where my children are born That is what my country should be. A land where the people are not silenced, with words like knives, or screams that pierce their heart A land where my friends and foes alike can live in harmony, A nation where my family does not live apart That is where my rights lie. A world full of love , a world ne'er strifed...

Hi! My name is Shradzy and I believe that everyone should be heard out. Firstly, (OBVIOUSLY) I think you can tell that I am the kind of person who will do a lot to achieve justice. The reason why I am writing this article is because I believe people should be heard out. Age. This thing we call 'age' is, in many ways, a global handicap. However, the only reason it is a handicap is because, we the people, make it one. Why should a child's voice be drowned out in the horde...

When I sent out the question, “What matters most to the youth in Nigeria?” I thought I already knew what the response of most young people would be. The International Youth Day (IYD) was coming up and though the theme was concerned with mental health, I considered it important to have the people affected weigh in on what really mattered to them. Moreover, I had read about the European Parliament’s IYD priority here: The article, in commemoration of IYD, highli...
