I just want to share my reaction towards Education in Africa; I think it would be excellent, if the UN invested in the field of education to provide first class universities in each developing country in Africa. This initiative would permit young Africans to possess or deliver their expectations. It would also discourage young people travelling to the Diaspora. If Africa has massive a number of well educated students then the future will be bright and the challenges in Africa will...

Dear VOY, Working with you has been a great journey. I honestly believe that you have made my life a more meaningful one by simply allowing me to write away my concerns on this forum. I have grown mentally and emotionally while reading what many of my peers have written from all over the world. I still cannot believe that I can share my opinion as openly and freely as I do beside my friends from Asia, Africa, Europe, Latin America, and beyond. I wish to commemorate my 1 year an...

First of all hello VOY I am happy to be writing again :D Yesterday I was watching Bloomberg and a special edition documentary TV show. It was about a Nigerian banker. His name is Tony Elumelu, he is the chairman of a bank in Nigeria and he also spoke for the duration of the documentary about his vision for continent Africa. He is a Nigerian born and raised, he went abroad to complete his final years of schooling and now has returned home. I lost interest after a point because...

My fathers and I I remember when the grass became a patriot on the sod and how growth was a midget in conflict. I remember when men couldn't feed and how wooden huts became a choice. I remember how the territory of slaves was carved from pain. I remember when my forefathers agreed to change the world. And how fate turned their hearts against each other. I remember when young girls were kidnapped, raped, and coerced for pleasure. And how it felt to have a sister. I remember the African pain and...

We call it civilization or industrial revolution. The world is getting more and more complex each day and the same is moving at an alarming speed. The speed that tends to even overwhelm us, the people bringing up the changes. But still, we call it development. It is a good thing, I can't object. The world has to grow and lives have to improve. One thing we tend to forget is that the world is not developing at a uniform speed everywhere. In some places, mostly Africa and Asia, are a...

I want our government to enforce regulations on how we can keep our surroundings clean. People should be told of what happens to the environment when it is not taken care of. Here is a picture that shows how Mongu, a town in the western part of Zambia, is not cared for by its own people... I wonder what would happen if this kind of dirt is allowed to pile up for more than 5 years.... Let's stand together and find a way to show these people how to keep our environment clean....

We spotted his carcass on 2nd June but to avoid any potential false alarms, we first...

I am really honoured to be here and thank you for all that you do for the children worldwide BUT; There are thousands of children living on the streets, around us but we turn a blind eye! These hungry, lonely and helpless young children roam the streets day and night no where to go, no future, no education, no parents, no one cares. They are victims of poverty, domestic violence and orphanism, They hunt for food and hope and survival! They become again victims of...

50 years after independence some counties in Kenya are marginalized and far from mainstream development. Article 204 of the Kenyan constitution provides for an equalization fund of 0.5% of the national budget to cover service provision and infrastructure development in marginalized areas. However, the rift of development between counties in Kenya is still wide, and this begs the question; who is to blame for the cases of insecurity, food insecurity, poverty levels of up to 84%, poo...
